(Adopted 8/91; Amended 9/92)

  1. Before acting on an application for Authorization to Construct or Permit to Operate, the Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO) may require the applicant to furnish full information including any plans or specifications. The APCO shall, when requested, make available to the public for examination all information and data compiled by or submitted to him in accordance with Section III of the California Business and Professions Code. The information specified by the applicant as trade secrets shall not be considered public information and the APCO shall maintain the confidentiality of such information.

  2. Upon the request of the APCO and as directed by the APCO, the owner or operator of any source operation which emits or may emit oxides of nitrogen or reactive organic gas shall provide the APCO with a written statement, in such form as the APCO prescribes, showing actual emissions of oxides of nitrogen and reactive organic gas from that source. At a minimum the emission statement shall contain all of the information contained in the Air Resource Board's (ARB) Emission Inventory Turn Around Document as described in "Instructions for the Emission Data System Review and Update Report." The statement shall contain emissions for the time period specified by the APCO. The statement shall also contain a certification by a responsible official of the company that the information contained in the statement is accurate to the best knowledge of the individual certifying the statement. The first statement will cover 1992 emissions and shall be submitted to the district by June 1993. Statements shall be submitted annually thereafter.

The APCO may waive this requirement to any class or category of stationary sources which emit less than 25 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen or reactive organic gas if the District provides the ARB with an emission inventory of sources emitting greater than 10 tons per year of nitrogen oxides or reactive organic gas based on the use of emission factors acceptable to the ARB.
