Reporting: Records; Maintaining and Reporting
(1)When notified by DEQ, any person owning or operating a source within the state must keep and maintain written records of the nature, type, and amounts of emissions from such source and other information DEQ may require in order to determine whether the source is in compliance with applicable emission rules, limitations, or control measures.
(2)The records must be prepared in the form of a report and submitted to DEQ on an annual, semi-annual, or more frequent basis, as requested in writing by DEQ. Submittals must be filed at the end of the first full period after DEQ’s notification to such persons owning or operating a stationary air contaminant source of these recordkeeping requirements. Unless otherwise required by rule or permit, semi-annual periods are Jan. 1 to June 30, and July 1 to Dec. 31. A more frequent basis for reporting may be required due to noncompliance or if necessary to protect human health or the environment.
(3)The required reports must be completed on forms approved by DEQ and submitted within 30 days after the end of the reporting period, unless otherwise authorized by permit.
(4)All reports and certifications submitted to DEQ under divisions 200 to 264 must accurately reflect the monitoring, record keeping and other documentation held or performed by the owner or operator.
(5)The owner or operator of any source required to obtain a permit under OAR 340 division 216 or 218 must retain records of all required monitoring data and supporting information for a period of at least five years from the date of the monitoring sample, measurement, report, or application. For the owner or operator of a source permitted under OAR 340 division 216, this requirement takes effect on July 1, 2015.
