Kentucky Administrative Regulation Chapter 51, entitled Attainment and Maintenance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards, is promulgated under the authority of the Division of Air Quality within the Energy and Environment Cabinet’s Department for Environmental Protection. This administrative regulation establishes the general provisions as related to new air pollution sources with respect to the prevention of significant deterioration of air quality and construction of stationary sources impacting on nonattainment areas. The purpose of chapter 51 is to prevent the significant deterioration of air quality in areas of the state where the air quality is better than the ambient air quality standards outlined in 401 KAR 53:010; and to provide conditions for the construction of new or modified sources which would impact on nonattainment areas in order that major or new or major modified sources will not exacerbate existing violations of the ambient air quality standards. These regulations state that the owner of an affected facility subject to this chapter shall be subject to the performance testing regulations found in 401 KAR 59:005, section 2. The owner or operator of an affected facility subject to this chapter is also subject to the notification and recordkeeping provisions found in 401 KAR 59:0005, Section 3. The Cabinet, as defined by KRS 224.01-010(9), may require the owner or operator of an affected facility subject to this chapter to install, calibrate, maintain, and operate continuous emission monitoring systems. All such emission monitoring systems shall be subject to the provisions of 401 KAR 59:005, Section 4, and other provisions as the cabinet deems necessary. "Affected facility" means an apparatus, building, operation, road, or other entity or series of entities that emits or may emit an air contaminant into the outdoor atmosphere. These regulations also cover the NOx requirements for stationary internal combustion engines, NOx requirements for large utility and industrial boilers, NOx credits for early reduction and emergency, Banking and trading if NOx allowances, NOx opt-in provisions, CAIR Ox Annual Trading Program, CAIR NOx ozone season trading program and the CAIR SO2 Trading Program.
