Applicability and Jurisdiction

(1) This division applies to all sources listed in OAR 340-216-8010. This division also applies to Oregon Title V Operating Permit program sources when an ACDP is required by 340-218-0020 or 340-224-0010. Sources referred to in 340-216-8010 are subject to fees in 340-216-8020.

(2) Sources in any one of the categories in OAR 340-216-8010 must obtain a permit. If a source meets the requirements of more than one of the source categories and the source is not eligible for a Basic ACDP or a General ACDP that has been authorized by DEQ, then the source must obtain a Simple or Standard ACDP. Source categories are not listed in alphabetical order.

(a) The commercial and industrial sources in OAR 340-216-8010 Part A must obtain a Basic ACDP under 340-216-0056 unless the source chooses to obtain a General, Simple or Standard ACDP. For purposes of Part A, production and emission parameters are based on the latest consecutive 12 month period, or future projected operation, whichever is higher. Emission cutoffs are based on actual emissions.

(b) Sources in any one of the categories in OAR 340-216-8010 Part B must obtain one of the following unless otherwise allowed in Part B:

(A) A General ACDP, if one is available for the source classification and the source qualifies for a General ACDP under OAR 340-216-0060;

(B) A Simple ACDP under OAR 340-216-0064; or

(C) A Standard ACDP under OAR 340-216-0066 if the source fits one of the criteria of Part C or does not qualify for a Simple ACDP.

(c) Sources in any one of the categories in OAR 340-216-8010 Part C must obtain a Standard ACDP under the procedures set forth in OAR 340-216-0066.

(3) No person may construct, install, establish, develop or operate any air contaminant source listed in OAR 340-216-8010 without first obtaining an Air Contaminant Discharge Permit (ACDP) from DEQ or LRAPA and keeping a copy onsite at all times, unless otherwise deferred from the requirement to obtain an ACDP in subsection (1)(b) or DEQ has granted an exemption from the requirement to obtain an ACDP under subsection (1)(e ). No person may continue to operate an air contaminant source if the ACDP expires, or is terminated or revoked; except as provided in 340-216-0082.

(a) For portable sources, a single permit may be issued for operating at any area of the state if the permit includes the requirements from both DEQ and LRAPA. DEQ or LRAPA, depending where the portable source's corporate offices are located, will be responsible for issuing the permit. If the corporate office of a portable source is located outside of the state, DEQ will be responsible for issuing the permit.

(b) An air contaminant source required to obtain an ACDP or ACDP Attachment pursuant to a NESHAP under OAR division 244 or NSPS under OAR division 238 is not required to submit an application for an ACDP or ACDP Attachment until four months after the effective date of the EQC’s adoption of the NESHAP or NSPS, and is not required to obtain an ACDP or ACDP Attachment until six months after the EQC’s adoption of the NESHAP or NSPS. In addition, DEQ may defer the requirement to submit an application for, or to obtain an ACDP or ACDP Attachment, or both, for up to an additional twelve months.

(c) Deferrals of Oregon permitting requirements do not relieve an air contaminant source from the responsibility of complying with federal NESHAP or NSPS requirements.

(d) OAR 340-216-0060(1)(b)(A), 340-216-0062(2)(b)(A), 340-216-0064(4)(a), and 340-216-0066(3)(a), do not relieve a permittee from the responsibility of complying with federal NESHAP or NSPS requirements that apply to the source even if DEQ has not incorporated such requirements into the permit.

(e) DEQ may exempt a source from the requirement to obtain an ACDP if it determines that the source is subject to only procedural requirements, such as notification that the source is affected by an NSPS or NESHAP.

(4) No person may construct, install, establish, or develop any source that will be subject to the Oregon Title V Operating Permit program without first obtaining an ACDP from DEQ or LRAPA.

(5) No person may modify any source that has been issued an ACDP without first complying with the requirements of OAR 340-210-0205 through 340-210-0250.

(6) No person may modify any source required to have an ACDP such that the source becomes subject to the Oregon Title V Operating Permit program without complying with the requirements of OAR 340-210-0205 through 340-210-0250.

(7) No person may increase emissions above the PSEL by more than the de minimis emission levels specified in OAR 340-200-0020 without first applying for and obtaining a modified ACDP.

(8) Subject to the requirements in this division and OAR 340-200-0010(3), LRAPA is designated by the EQC to implement the rules in this division within its area of jurisdiction.

NOTE: This rule is included in the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan as adopted by the EQC under OAR 340-211-0040.

(5) Simple ACDP.

(a) Owners and operators of sources and activities listed in OAR 340-216-8010 Part B that do not qualify for a General ACDP and are not required to obtain a Standard ACDP must, at a minimum, obtain a Simple ACDP. Any source required to obtain a Simple ACDP may obtain a Standard ACDP. DEQ may determine that a source is ineligible for a Simple ACDP and must obtain a Standard ACDP based upon, but not limited to, the following considerations:

(A) The nature, extent, and toxicity of the source's emissions;

(B) The complexity of the source and the rules applicable to that source;

(C) The complexity of the emission controls and potential threat to human health and the environment if the emission controls fail;

(D) The location of the source; and

(E) The compliance history of the source.

(b) A Simple ACDP is a permit that contains:

(A) All relevant applicable requirements for source operation, including general ACDP conditions for incorporating generally applicable requirements;

(B) Generic PSELs for all regulated pollutants emitted at more than the de minimis emission level according to OAR 340 division 222;

(C) Testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements sufficient to determine compliance with the PSEL and other emission limits and standards, as necessary; and

(D) A permit duration not to exceed 5 years.

(6) Standard ACDP:

(a) Applicability.

(A) The owner or operator of a source listed in Part C of OAR 340-216-8010 must obtain a Standard ACDP.

(B) The owner or operator of a source listed in Part B of OAR 340-216-8010 that does not qualify for a General ACDP or Simple ACDP must obtain a Standard ACDP.

(C) The owner or operator of a source not required to obtain a Standard ACDP may obtain a Standard ACDP.

(b) A Standard ACDP is a permit that contains:

(A) All applicable requirements, including general ACDP conditions for incorporating generally applicable requirements;

(B) Source specific PSELs or Generic PSEL levels, whichever are applicable, as specified in OAR 340 division 222;

(C) Testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements sufficient to determine compliance with the PSEL and other emission limits and standards, as necessary; and

(D) A permit duration not to exceed 5 years.

Construction ACDP

(1) Purpose. A Construction ACDP is a permit for approval of Type 3 construction or modification changes as specified in OAR 340-210-0225 and 340-210-0240. The Construction ACDP includes requirements for the construction or modification of stationary sources or air pollution control devices and does not by itself provide authorization to operate the new construction or modification. A new or modified Standard ACDP or Oregon Title V Operating Permit is required before operation of the new construction or modification. A Construction ACDP may be used for the following situations:

(a) For complex construction or modification projects that require an extended period of time to construct, the Construction ACDP may provide construction approval faster than issuance of a Standard ACDP or modified Standard ACDP because the operating requirements would not need to be included in the permit.

(b) For Oregon Title V Operating Permit sources, the Construction ACDP may include the requirements of OAR 340-218-0050 and follow the external review procedures in OAR 340-218-0210 and 340-218-0230 so that the requirements may later be incorporated into the Oregon Title V Operating Permit by an administrative amendment. If the applicant elects to incorporate the Construction ACDP by administrative amendment, all of the application submittal, permit content, and permit issuance requirements of OAR 340 division 218 must be met for the Construction ACDP.

(2) Application requirements. Any person requesting a Construction ACDP must:

(a) Submit an application according to OAR 340-216-0040 and provide the information specified in 340-216-0040(1) as it relates to the proposed new construction or modification; and

(b) Provide a list of any applicable requirements related to the new construction or modification.

(3) Fees. Applicants for a Construction ACDP must pay the fees in OAR 340-216-8020.

(4) Permit content. A Construction ACDP must include at least the following:

(a) A requirement that construction must commence within 18 months after the permit is issued if required by OAR 340-224-0030(4);

(b) A requirement to construct according to approved plans;

(c) A requirement to comply with all applicable requirements;

(d) Emission limits for affected stationary sources;

(e) Performance standards for affected stationary sources and air pollution control devices;

(f) Performance test requirements;

(g) Monitoring requirements, if specialized equipment is required (e.g., continuous monitoring systems);

(h) Notification and reporting requirements (construction status reports, startup dates, source test plans, CEMS performance specification testing plans, etc.);

(i) General ACDP conditions for incorporating generally applicable requirements;

(j) A requirement to modify the operating permit before commencing operation of the new construction or modification;

(k) A permit expiration date of no more than 5 years; and

(l) Oregon Title V Permit requirements as specified in OAR 340-218-0050, if the applicant requests the external review procedures in 340-218-0210 and 340-218-0230.

(5) Permit issuance procedures:

(a) A Construction ACDP requires that DEQ provide public notice according to OAR 340 division 209 as a Category III permit action.

(b) For sources subject to the Oregon Title V Operating Permit program, the applicant may ask for the external review procedures in OAR 340-218-0210 and 340-218-0230 in addition to the requirements of OAR 340 division 209 to allow the Construction ACDP to be incorporated into the Oregon Title V Operating Permit at a later date by an administrative amendment provided the requirements of subsection (1)(b) are met.

(c) Issuance of a modified Construction ACDP requires the following public notice, as applicable:

(A) Public notice as a Category I permit action under OAR 340 division 209 for non-technical modifications and basic and simple technical modifications; or

(B) Public notice as a Category II permit action under OAR 340 division 209 for moderate and complex technical modifications.

(6) Construction ACDPs may not be renewed.

(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.

(3) Source assignment:

(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 for each assigned General ACDP Attachment. The fee class for each General ACDP Attachment is Fee Class Five.

(c) Assignment procedures:

(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(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.

(1) Purpose. This rule allows DEQ to add new requirements to existing Simple or Standard ACDPs by assigning the source to an ACDP Attachment issued under section (2). An ACDP Attachment would apply to an affected source until the new requirements are incorporated into the source’s Simple or Standard ACDP at the next permit renewal or at the time of permit modification.

(2) ACDP Attachment issuance procedures:

(a) An ACDP Attachment requires public notice as a Category II permit action under OAR 340 division 209, except that ACDP Attachments to Simple or Standard ACDPs require notice as Category I permit actions.

(b) DEQ may issue an ACDP Attachment when there are multiple sources that are subject to the new requirements.

(c) Attachment content. Each ACDP Attachment must include the following:

(A) Testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements necessary to ensure compliance with the applicable emissions limits and standards; and

(B) An attachment expiration date not to exceed 5 years from the date of issuance.

(3) Assignment to ACDP Attachment:

(a) A source is not a permittee under the ACDP Attachment until DEQ assigns the ACDP Attachment to the source.

(b) The ACDP Attachment is removed from the Simple or Standards ACDP when the requirements of the ACDP Attachment are incorporated into the source’s Simple or Standard ACDP at the time of renewal or of a modification.

(c) If an EPA or DEQ action causes a source to be subject to the requirements in an ACDP Attachment, assignment to the ACDP Attachment is a DEQ initiated modification to the Simple or Standard ACDP and the permittee is not required to submit an application or pay fees for the permit action. In such case, DEQ would notify the permittee of the proposed permitting action and the permittee may object to the permit action if the permittee demonstrates that the source is not subject to the requirements of the ACDP Attachment.

Termination or Revocation of an ACDP

(1) Expiration.

(a) A source may not be operated after the expiration date of a permit, unless any of the following occur prior to the expiration date of the permit:

(A) A timely and complete application for renewal has been submitted; or

(B) Another type of permit, ACDP or Oregon Title V Operating Permit, has been issued authorizing operation of the source.

(b) If a timely and complete renewal application has been submitted, the existing permit will remain in effect until final action has been taken on the renewal application to issue or deny a permit.

(c) For a source operating under an ACDP or Oregon Title V Operating Permit, a requirement established in an earlier ACDP remains in effect notwithstanding expiration of the ACDP, unless the provision expires by its terms or unless the provision is modified or terminated according to the procedures used to establish the requirement initially.

(2) Automatic Termination. A permit is automatically terminated upon:

(a) Issuance of a renewal or new ACDP for the same activity or operation;

(b) Written request of the permittee, if DEQ determines that a permit is no longer required;

(c) Failure to submit a timely application for permit renewal. Termination is effective on the permit expiration date; or

(d) Failure to pay annual fees within 90 days of invoice by DEQ, unless prior arrangements for payment have been approved in writing by DEQ.

(3) Reinstatement of Terminated Permit: A permit automatically terminated under any of subsections (2)(b) through (2)(d) may only be reinstated by the permittee by applying for a new permit. The permittee must also pay the applicable new source permit application fees in this division, unless the owner or operator submits the renewal application within three months of the permit expiration date.

(4) Revocation:

(a) If DEQ determines that a permittee is in noncompliance with the terms of the permit, submitted false information in the application or other required documentation, or is in violation of any applicable rule or statute, DEQ may revoke the permit. DEQ will provide notice of the intent to revoke the permit to the permittee under OAR 340-011-0525. The notice will include the reasons why the permit will be revoked, and include an opportunity for the permittee to request a contested case hearing prior to the revocation. A permittee’s written request for hearing must be received by DEQ within 60 days from service of the notice on the permittee, and must state the grounds of the request. The hearing will be conducted as a contested case hearing under ORS 183.413 through 183.470 and OAR 340 division 011. The permit will continue in effect until the 60th day after service of the notice on the permittee, if the permittee does not timely request a hearing, or until a final order is issued if the permittee timely requests a hearing.

(b) If DEQ finds there is a serious danger to the public health, safety or the environment caused by a permittee's activities, DEQ may immediately revoke or refuse to renew the permit without prior notice or opportunity for a hearing. If no advance notice is provided, notification will be provided to the permittee as soon as possible under OAR 340-011-0525. The notification will set forth the specific reasons for the revocation or refusal to renew and will provide an opportunity for the permittee to request a contested case hearing for review of the revocation or refusal to renew. A permittee’s written request for hearing must be received by DEQ within 90 days of service of the notice on the permittee and must state the grounds for the request. The hearing will be conducted as a contested case hearing under ORS 183.413 through 183.470 and OAR 340 division 011. The revocation or refusal to renew becomes final without further action by DEQ if a request for a hearing is not received within the 90 days. If a request for a hearing is timely received, the revocation or refusal to renew will remain in place until issuance of a final order.

Department Initiated Modification

If DEQ determines it is appropriate to modify an ACDP, other than a General ACDP, DEQ will notify the permittee by regular, registered or certified mail of the modification and will include the proposed modification and the reasons for the modification. The modification will become effective upon mailing unless the permittee requests a contested case hearing within 20 days. A request for hearing must be made in writing and must include the grounds for the request. The hearing will be conducted as a contested case hearing under ORS 183.413 through 183.470 and OAR 340 division 011. If a hearing is requested, the existing permit will remain in effect until after a final order is issued following the hearing.

Temporary Closure

(1) A permittees that temporarily suspends activities for which an ACDP is required may apply for a fee reduction due to temporary closure. However, the anticipated period of closure must exceed six months and must not be due to regular maintenance or seasonal limitations.

(2) DEQ will prorate annual fees for temporary closure based on the length of the closure in a calendar year, but will not be less than one half of the regular annual fee for the source.

(3) A source who has received Department approval for payment of the temporary closure fee must obtain authorization from DEQ prior to resuming permitted activities. An owner or operator of the source must submit written notification, together with the prorated annual fee for the remaining months of the year, to DEQ at least thirty (30) days before startup and specify in the notification the earliest anticipated startup date.
