Summary

The Arkansas Air Pollution Control code is adopted pursuant to Subchapter 2 of the Arkansas Water and Air Pollution Control Act (Arkansas Code Annotated 8-4-101). ) By authority of the same State law, the Commission has also adopted Regulation 19, Regulations of the Arkansas Plan of Implementation for Air Pollution Control (Regulation 19) and Regulation 26, Regulations of the Arkansas Operating Air Permit Program (Regulation 26) which deal exclusively with regulations compelled by federal mandates and which are to some extent federally enforceable. It is the specific intent of Regulation 18 to preclude federal enforceability of Regulation 18 requirements. Regulation 18 permits or permit conditions issued under its authority, or enforcement issues arising from Regulation 18 shall not be deemed to be federally enforceable.

No person shall cause or permit the operation, construction or modification of a stationary source, which actually emits: 75 tons per year or more of carbon monoxide; 40 tons per year or more of nitrogen oxides; 40 tons per year or more of sulfur dioxide; 40 tons per year or more of volatile organic compounds; 25 tons per year or more of particulate matter; 15 tons per year or more of PM100.5 tons per year or more of lead; 2.0 ton per year or more of any single hazardous air pollutant; 5.0 tons per year or more of any combination of hazardous air pollutants; or 25 tons per year or more of any other air contaminant without first obtaining a permit from the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ). Application of a permit shall be made on such forms and contain such information as the Department may reasonably require, including but not limited to: (1) information on the nature and amounts of air pollutants to be emitted by the stationary source or by associated mobile sources; and (2) such information on the location, design, and operation of stationary source as the Department may reasonably require.

No person shall cause or permit the operation, construction, or modification of a stationary source, whose actual emissions are: 40 tons per year or more but less than 75 tons per year of carbon monoxide; 25 tons per year or more but less than 40 tons per year of nitrogen oxides; 25 tons per year or more but less than 40 tons per year of sulfur dioxide; 25 tons per year or more but less than 40 tons per year of volatile organic compounds; 15 tons per year or more but less than 25 tons per year of particulate matter; 10 tons per year or more but less than 15 tons per year of PM10; 1.0 ton per year or more but less than 2 tons per year of any single hazardous air pollutant; or 3.0 tons per year or more but less than 5 tons per year of an combination of hazardous air pollutants without first having registered the source with the Department. Such registration shall be made on such forms and contain such information as the Department may reasonably require, including but not limited to: ) the name and address of the facility; an estimate of emissions from the facility; and an explanation of how the emissions estimate was determined.

These regulations also list the monitoring, sampling, and reporting requirements which will be no less stringent than the federally mandated requirements.

If there is any shutdown, startup, breakdown, interruption of fuel supply the operator of the permitted facility must report to the Director within 24 hours.
