Summary

The Permit Board will issue two types of air pollution control permits, a permit to construct air emissions equipment and a State Permit to Operate such equipment. A State Permit to Operate is required for all emitting sources applicable to energy production. All applications must be submitted on the form supplied by the Permit Board.

It is only necessary to apply for a permit if you are not meeting the standards outlined in the Air Emission Regulations for the Prevention, Abatement, and Control of Air Contaminants regulations. Applicants for all permits to construct or operate, or to renew a State Permit to Operate, must specify the air emission rate for each expected air pollutant subject to regulation under the Federal Clean Air Act.

The information needed for a permit to construct and state permit to operate a new stationary source is: 2 complete sets of site drawings, construction drawings, design calculations and specifications, Upon request by the Permit Board any additional information necessary to evaluate the design adequacy of the new stationary source, the Permit Board may enquire the applicant to predict the impact of emissions on air quality.

The applicant must adhere to all Air Quality Standards and receive permission from Permit Board to begin operations. The granting of a Permit does not relieve the source of the responsibility to comply with other applicable Regulations or Law. The State Permit to Operate expires after 5 years; renewal must be applied for in no less than 180 days of issuance. Every stationary source with actual emissions of air contaminants in excess of .25 tons per day must have a Commission-approved emissions reduction schedule.

The following emissions units are excluded from the requirement for a permit to construct provided the unit is not a new major stationary source, major source of hazardous air pollutants: Coal of residual oil-fired combustion devices or groups of devices with a total rated input capacity of less than 2,000,000 BTU/hr, distillate oil or combination distillate and gas-fired units or groups of units with a total rated input capacity less than 10,000,000 BTU/hr and natural gas fired devices or groups of devices with all individual rated input capacities of less than 10,000,000 BTU/hr and a total rated input capacity less than 25,000,000 BTU/hr. Equipment used exclusively for oil and gas field production, gathering, storing and transmission. Petroleum products storage facilities with no individual storage tank greater than 19,800 gallons and total storage capacity less than 55,000 gallons. Surface coal mining operations for which a permit has been issued by the Permit Board or by the Federal Office of Surface Mining. Dedicated fuel stations with total storage capacity less than 55,000 gallons and no individual tank greater than 19,800 gallons. Initial field testing of oil and gas wells, after proper notification to the Commission provided such tests will not produce 100 tons per year or more of any pollutant.
