Information Source


This chapter enumerates primary and secondary ambient air quality standards and the significant deterioration increments. Significant deterioration refers to an increase in ambient air pollution above a baseline plus a specific increment allowed for one of three classes of areas. It is required for potential sources of air contaminants to register with the Division. Facilities that emit air contaminants have to file an emission inventory and pay annual operating fees.

The article also lays out rules about permits for operation and construction of facilities, states visibility standards and excess emissions reporting standards. It also provides provisions for open burning, incinerators, municipal waste combustors and for the control of emission of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds.

The rules have provisions for permitting, as well as specific provisions for clean coal technology.
