General ACDP Attachments
(1)Purpose. This rule allows a source to be assigned to one General ACDP and one or more General ACDP Attachments, as long as the General ACDP and General ACDP Attachment contain all requirements applicable to the source. This would allow a source to avoid having to obtain a more costly Simple or Standard ACDP if there are no General ACDPs that contain all requirements applicable to the source.
(a)DEQ may issue a General ACDP Attachment under the following circumstances:
(A)There are multiple sources that involve the same or substantially similar types of operations;
(B)All requirements applicable to the covered operations can be contained in a General ACDP Attachment;
(C)The emission limitations, monitoring, recordkeeping, reporting and other enforceable conditions are the same for all operations covered by the General ACDP Attachment;
(D)The regulated pollutants emitted are of the same type for all covered operations. If a General ACDP and a General ACDP Attachment cannot address all activities at a source, the owner or operator of the source must apply for a Simple or Standard ACDP according to this division.
(b)Attachment content. Each General ACDP Attachment must include the following:
(A)All relevant requirements for the operations covered by the General ACDP Attachment, excluding any federal requirements not adopted by the EQC;
(B)Testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements necessary to ensure compliance with the applicable emissions limits and standards; and
(C)An attachment expiration date not to exceed 10 years from the date of issuance.
(c)Attachment issuance public notice procedures: A General ACDP Attachment requires public notice as a Category II permit action according to OAR 340 division 209.
(d)DEQ will retain all General ACDP Attachments on file and make them available for public review at DEQ’s headquarters.
(a)Application requirements. Any person requesting to be assigned to a General ACDP Attachment must submit a written application for each requested General ACDP Attachment that specifies the requested General ACDP Attachment and shows that the source qualifies for the requested General ACDP Attachment.
(b)Fees. Applicants must pay the fees in OAR 340-216-8020 (Table 2 — Air Contaminant Discharge Permits) for each assigned General ACDP Attachment. The fee class for each General ACDP Attachment is Fee Class Five.
(A)Assignment to a General ACDP Attachment is a Category I permit action and is subject to the Category I public notice requirements under OAR 340 division 209.
(B)A person is not a permittee under the General ACDP Attachment until DEQ assigns the General ACDP Attachment to the person.
(C)Assignment to a General ACDP Attachment terminates when the General ACDP Attachment expires or is modified, terminated or revoked.
(D)A source may not be assigned to a General ACDP Attachment for a source category in a higher annual fee class than the General ACDP to which the source is currently assigned. Instead a source must be reassigned to the General ACDP for the source category in the higher annual fee class according to OAR 340-216-0060 (General Air Contaminant Discharge Permits)(2)(c)(E) and may be assigned to one or more General ACDP Attachments associated with source categories in an equal or lower annual fee class.
(d)If all activities at a source cannot be addressed by a General ACDP and General ACDP Attachments, the owner or operator of the source must apply for a Simple or Standard ACDP according to this division.
