Department of Environmental Quality, Chapter 340

Rule Caption: Align Diesel Grant Program with Federal Guidelines

Adm. Order No.: DEQ 3-2014

Filed with Sec. of State: 3-31-2014

Certified to be Effective: 3-31-14

Notice Publication Date: 1-1-2014

Rules Amended: 340-259-0010

Subject: The Environmental Quality Commission amended clean diesel grant and loan program rules to implement Senate Bill 249 (2013). The commission approved these changes by temporary rule Oct. 16, 2013, to allow DEQ to administer federal grants received for clean diesel projects during the current federal grant cycle. The temporary rules expire April 27, 2014.

   Brief history:

   The 2013 Oregon Legislature unanimously adopted Senate Bill 249. The bill authorized DEQ to administer federal grants for clean diesel projects and to complete the projects according to federal grant guidelines rather than the more limited state guidelines. Authority to administer clean diesel grants was first provided to DEQ in 2007. Projects that qualified for grants were limited to retrofitting diesel exhaust controls, non-road engine repowers and scrapping pre-1994 trucks. The federal program guidelines provide for many other eligible activities including idle reduction, aerodynamic enhancements and vehicle replacement.

   Although the legislation included an emergency clause making it effective upon filing, DEQ must adopt implementing rules. Failure to adopt the rules would have prevented DEQ from offering the broader range of projects that are now more attractive to Oregon’s potential applicants interested in reducing harmful emissions from diesel engines.

   Regulated parties:

   Participation in the grant program is voluntary. The rules affect owners of diesel powered vehicles and equipment as sub-recipients of DEQ-secured grant funds. The successful implementation of projects supported by grants authorized by the rules affects Oregonians by reducing harmful emissions.

Purpose and Scope

(1) The purpose of the clean diesel grant and loan rules is to make grants and loans available to the owners or operators of diesel engines for the retrofit of an Oregon diesel engine, for the repower of a non-road Oregon diesel engine, or for the scrapping of an Oregon truck engine.

(2) The rules in this division do not apply to DEQ grants or loans using moneys received from the federal government for initiatives to reduce emissions from diesel engines. DEQ may exercise its discretion to issue such grants and awards as it deems appropriate, consistent with and subject to federal law.

Rule Caption: Incorporate Lane Regional Air Protection Agency Rules for open burning into State Implementation Plan

Adm. Order No.: DEQ 4-2014

Filed with Sec. of State: 3-31-2014

Certified to be Effective: 3-31-14

Notice Publication Date: 1-1-2014

Rules Amended: 340-200-0040

Subject: The Environmental Quality Commission amended rules to incorporate Lane Regional Air Protection Agency revised regulations for open burning into Oregon’s State Implementation Plan in Oregon Administrative Rule 340-200-0040. The LRAPA Board of Directors adopted open burning rules revisions in an effort to meet federal air quality standards for fine particulate matter, to bring LRAPA in line with state rules and better coordinate with state and federal requirements. LRAPA revised its rules to:

    - Clarify when and where small recreational fires such as patio fireplace could occur and identify acceptable fuels for these fires,

    - Include Hazeldell and Siuslaw Rural Fire Protection Districts in the special open-burning control area at the districts’ request,

    - Allow daily end time on burn days to be set earlier than sunset,

    - Restrict the open burning season in the outlying areas of Lane County, and

    - Correct the meaning of the LRAPA acronym to Lane Regional Air Protection Agency.

   Brief history

   LRAPA, in consultation with DEQ and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is responsible for ensuring that Lane County communities comply with federal air quality health standards, including enacting plans to restore healthy air quality in any area violating standards. LRAPA conducts air monitoring, permitting and compliance, inspection and enforcement, and regulates open burning and asbestos abatement throughout Lane County. It also has a woodstove advisory program, an open burning advisory program and conducts special projects focused on air quality. Funding sources for LRAPA include dues from Lane County and cities in Lane County and fees from industrial and other permitted sources. Additionally, LRAPA coordinates with DEQ to obtain EPA funding and state general funds.

   On March 14, 2008, the LRAPA Board of Directors adopted amendments to the Title 47 open burning rules, and the rules have been in effect in Lane County since their adoption. The Environmental Quality Commission and DEQ have oversight authority to ensure LRAPA meets Clean Air Act requirements.

   The State Implementation Plan is the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan that EQC adopts under OAR 340-200-0040 and EPA approves. EQC reviews LRAPA rules to determine if they comply with state law and the Clean Air Act. If they comply, EQC approves the LRAPA rules and revisions to OAR 340-200-0040 and directs DEQ to submit the approved rules to EPA for federal approval as State Implementation Plan amendments.

   Typically, DEQ presents LRAPA rules to EQC for consideration immediately upon adoption by the LRAPA board. EPA’s public notice requirements are above and beyond Oregon’s requirements and several years ago, DEQ and LRAPA held a joint public notice that met Oregon requirements, but determined that process did not meet EPA’s requirements for State Implementation Plan rules. Performing rulemaking is resource intensive and DEQ was unable to perform the additional public notice requirements until now.

   Regulated parties

   The rule amendments do not change the regulated parties or requirements for regulated parties from the rules that LRAPA’s board adopted in 2008. The 2008 rules affect residential open burning in Lane County.

State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan

(1) This implementation plan, consisting of Volumes 2 and 3 of the State of Oregon Air Quality Control Program, contains control strategies, rules and standards prepared by DEQ and is adopted as the state implementation plan (SIP) of the State of Oregon pursuant to the federal Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C.A 7401 to 7671q.

(2) Except as provided in section (3), revisions to the SIP will be made pursuant to the Commission’s rulemaking procedures in division 11 of this chapter and any other requirements contained in the SIP and will be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency for approval. The State Implementation Plan was last modified by the Commission on March 20, 2014.

(3) Notwithstanding any other requirement contained in the SIP, DEQ may:

(a) Submit to the Environmental Protection Agency any permit condition implementing a rule that is part of the federally-approved SIP as a source-specific SIP revision after DEQ has complied with the public hearings provisions of 40 CFR 51.102 (July 1, 2002); and

(b) Approve the standards submitted by a regional authority if the regional authority adopts verbatim any standard that the Commission has adopted, and submit the standards to EPA for approval as a SIP revision.

NOTE: Revisions to the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan become federally enforceable upon approval by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. If any provision of the federally approved Implementation Plan conflicts with any provision adopted by the Commission, DEQ shall enforce the more stringent provision.

Rule Caption: Incorporate Lane Regional Air Protection Agency Rules for permit streamlining into State Implementation Plan

Adm. Order No.: DEQ 5-2014

Certified to be Effective: 3-31-14

Notice Publication Date: 1-1-2014

Rules Amended: 340-200-0040

Subject: The Environmental Quality Commission adopted rule amendments to incorporate Lane Regional Air Protection Agency revised regulations for permit streamlining into Oregon’s State Implementation Plan in Oregon Administrative Rule 340-200-0040. The LRAPA Board of Directors adopted permit streamlining rules revisions in an effort to maximize efficiencies in LRAPA’s permitting program while maintaining the existing level of environmental protection, bring LRAPA in line with state rules, and better coordinate with state and federal requirements.

   The LRAPA rules contain:

    - State and federal National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants and New Source Performance Standards that were in effect at the time of LRAPA’s rule adoption.

    - Streamlined and improved permitting processes comparable to DEQ rules adopted in 2001 and 2007.

    - Narrowing of an agriculture exemption comparable to DEQ rules adopted in 2008.

    - Minor corrections and adjustments adopted by LRAPA’s Board in January 2010 to the regulations previously adopted by LRAPA’s Board in October 2008.

   Brief history

   LRAPA, in consultation with DEQ and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is responsible for ensuring that Lane County communities comply with federal air quality health standards, including enacting plans to restore healthy air quality in any area violating standards. LRAPA conducts air monitoring, permitting and compliance, inspection and enforcement, and regulates open burning and asbestos abatement throughout Lane County. It also has a woodstove advisory program, an open burning advisory program and conducts special projects focused on air quality. Funding sources for LRAPA include dues from Lane County and cities in Lane County and fees from industrial and other permitted sources. Additionally, LRAPA coordinates with DEQ to obtain EPA funding and state general funds.

   On October 14, 2008 and January 12, 2010, the LRAPA Board of Directors adopted amendments to the permit rules, and the rules have been in effect in Lane County since their adoption. The Environmental Quality Commission and DEQ have oversight authority to ensure LRAPA meets Clean Air Act requirements.

   The State Implementation Plan is the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan that EQC adopts under OAR 340-200-0040 and EPA approves. EQC reviews LRAPA rules to determine if they comply with state law and the Clean Air Act. If they comply, EQC approves the LRAPA rules and revisions to OAR 340-200-0040 and directs DEQ to submit the approved rules to EPA for federal approval as State Implementation Plan amendments.

   Typically, DEQ presents LRAPA rules to EQC for consideration immediately upon adoption by the LRAPA board. EPA’s public notice requirements are above and beyond Oregon’s requirements and several years ago, DEQ and LRAPA held a joint public notice that met Oregon requirements, but determined that process did not meet EPA’s requirements for State Implementation Plan rules. Performing rulemaking is resource intensive and DEQ was unable to perform the additional public notice requirements until now.

   Regulated parties

   The rule amendments do not change the regulated parties or requirements for regulated parties from the rules that LRAPA’s board adopted in 2008 and 2010. The regulated parties include businesses in LRAPA’s jurisdiction subject to Air Contaminant Discharge Permits and Title V Operating Permits.

Rule Caption: Incorporate Lane Regional Air Protection Agency Rules for permitting requirements into State Implementation Plan

Adm. Order No.: DEQ 6-2014

Filed with Sec. of State: 3-31-2014

Certified to be Effective: 3-31-14

Notice Publication Date: 1-1-2014

Rules Amended: 340-200-0040

Subject: The Environmental Quality Commission adopted rule amendments to incorporate Lane Regional Air Protection Agency revised regulations for air quality permits into Oregon’s State Implementation Plan in Oregon Administrative Rule 340-200-0040. The LRAPA Board of Directors adopted the rules revisions in an effort to bring LRAPA in line with state rules and better coordinate with state and federal requirements.

   The LRAPA rules contain:

    - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s thresholds for New Source Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and greenhouse gases

    - New and amended federal New Source Performance Standards and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants applicable to non-major or area sources including aluminum, copper, and other nonferrous foundries; chemical manufacturing; ferroalloy production; metal fabrication and finishing; paint stripping and miscellaneous surface coating operations; and plating and polishing operations

    - Permitting requirements necessary to implement the federal standards

    - Registration options as an alternative to permitting

   

    - Exemptions to permitting for emergency-use and small electrical power generating units

    - Statutory requirements for small scale local energy projects

    - Corrections to rule citations and definitions of terms

   Brief history

   LRAPA, in consultation with DEQ and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is responsible for ensuring that Lane County communities comply with federal air quality health standards, including enacting plans to restore healthy air quality in any area violating standards. LRAPA conducts air monitoring, permitting and compliance, inspection and enforcement, and regulates open burning and asbestos abatement throughout Lane County. It also has a woodstove advisory program, an open burning advisory program and conducts special projects focused on air quality. Funding sources for LRAPA include dues from Lane County and cities in Lane County and fees from industrial and other permitted sources. Additionally, LRAPA coordinates with DEQ to obtain EPA funding and state general funds.

   On April 25, 2011, the LRAPA Board of Directors adopted amendments to the permitting rules, and the rules have been in effect in Lane County since their adoption. The Environmental Quality Commission and DEQ have oversight authority to ensure LRAPA meets Clean Air Act requirements.

   The State Implementation Plan is the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan that EQC adopts under OAR 340-200-0040 and EPA approves. EQC reviews LRAPA rules to determine if they comply with state law and the Clean Air Act. If they comply, EQC approves the LRAPA rules and revisions to OAR 340-200-0040 and directs DEQ to submit the approved rules to EPA for federal approval as State Implementation Plan amendments.

   Typically, DEQ presents LRAPA rules to EQC for consideration immediately upon adoption by the LRAPA board. EPA’s public notice requirements are above and beyond Oregon’s requirements and several years ago, DEQ and LRAPA held a joint public notice that met Oregon requirements, but determined that process did not meet EPA’s requirements for State Implementation Plan rules. Performing rulemaking is resource intensive and DEQ was unable to perform the additional public notice requirements until now.

   Regulated parties

   The rule amendments do not change the regulated parties or requirements for regulated parties from the rules that LRAPA’s board adopted in 2011. The regulated parties are subject to LRAPA’s Air Contaminant Discharge Permit and Title V Operating Permit requirements. The 2011 LRAPA rules:

    - Affect facilities in Lane County.

    - Regulate emissions of PM2.5 and greenhouse gases at all stationary sources emitting more than the ‘de minimis’ level of these pollutants.

    - Regulate motor vehicle and mobile equipment surface coating and metal fabrication facilities subject to new and modified National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air

   Pollutants.

State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan

(1) This implementation plan, consisting of Volumes 2 and 3 of the State of Oregon Air Quality Control Program, contains control strategies, rules and standards prepared by DEQ and is adopted as the state implementation plan (SIP) of the State of Oregon pursuant to the federal Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C.A 7401 to 7671q.

(2) Except as provided in section (3), revisions to the SIP will be made pursuant to the Commission’s rulemaking procedures in division 11 of this chapter and any other requirements contained in the SIP and will be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency for approval. The State Implementation Plan was last modified by the Commission on March 20, 2014.

(3) Notwithstanding any other requirement contained in the SIP, DEQ may:

(a) Submit to the Environmental Protection Agency any permit condition implementing a rule that is part of the federally-approved SIP as a source-specific SIP revision after DEQ has complied with the public hearings provisions of 40 CFR 51.102 (July 1, 2002); and

(b) Approve the standards submitted by a regional authority if the regional authority adopts verbatim any standard that the Commission has adopted, and submit the standards to EPA for approval as a SIP revision.

NOTE: Revisions to the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan become federally enforceable upon approval by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. If any provision of the federally approved Implementation Plan conflicts with any provision adopted by the Commission, DEQ shall enforce the more stringent provision.
