252:100-45-1.  Purpose

     The purpose of this Subchapter is to outline the basic requirements for monitoring of emissions and their recording and reporting.

252:100-45-2.  Monitoring equipment required

     The  Executive Director may require the owner or operator of any air contaminant source to:
          (1)  install, use, and maintain such monitoring equipment;
          (2)  sample such emissions in accordance with methods as the  Executive Director shall prescribe;
          (3)  establish and maintain such records; and
          (4)  make such periodic emission reports as required in 252:100-45-3.

252:100-45-3.  Records required

     Records and reports as the  Executive Director shall prescribe on air contaminants or fuel shall be recorded, compiled, and submitted on forms furnished by the  Executive Director.  (The procedures below are examples of such requirements.)
          (1)  Emissions of particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, and oxides of nitrogen shall be expressed as follows:
               (A)  in pounds per hour and pounds per million BTU of heat input for fuel-burning equipment;
               (B)  in pounds per hour and pounds per 100 pounds of refuse burned for incinerators; and
               (C)  in pounds per hour and in pounds per hourly process weight or production rate or in terms of some other easily measured and meaningful process unit specified by the  Executive Director.
          (2)  Sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen emission data shall be averaged over a 24-hour period and shall be summarized monthly.  Daily averages and monthly summaries shall be submitted to the  Executive Director biannually.  Data should be calculated daily and available for inspection at any time.
          (3)  Particulate matter emissions shall be sampled and submitted biannually.
          (4)  Visible emissions shall be measured continuously and records kept indicating total minutes per day in which stack discharge effluent exceeds 20 percent opacity.  Data should be summarized biannually.  Current daily results shall be available for inspection at any time.
          (5)  The sulfur content of fuels, as burned, except natural gas, shall be determined in accordance with current recognized ASTM procedures.  Daily and monthly averages shall be submitted biannually.  Daily records shall be kept current and be available for inspection.
