§ 52.2336 Federal implementation plan for regional haze.  


Latest version.
  • (a) Applicability. (1) This section applies to each owner and operator of the following emissions units in the State of Utah:

    (i) PacifiCorp Hunter Plant Units 1 and 2; and

    (ii) PacifiCorp Huntington Plant Units 1 and 2.

    (2) [Reserved]

    (b) Definitions. Terms not defined in this paragraph (b) shall have the meaning given them in the Clean Air Act or EPA's regulations implementing the Clean Air Act. For purposes of this section:

    (1) BART means Best Available Retrofit Technology.

    (2) BART unit means any unit subject to a Regional Haze emission limit in Table 1 of this section.

    (3) Continuous emission monitoring system or CEMS means the equipment required by this section to sample, analyze, measure, and provide, by means of readings recorded at least once every 15 minutes (using an automated data acquisition and handling system (DAHS)), a permanent record of NOX emissions, diluent, or stack gas volumetric flow rate.

    (4) FIP means Federal Implementation Plan.

    (5) The term lb/MMBtu means pounds per million British thermal units of heat input to the fuel-burning unit.

    (6) NOX means nitrogen oxides.

    (7) Operating day means a 24-hour period between 12 midnight and the following midnight during which any fuel is combusted at any time in the BART unit. It is not necessary for fuel to be combusted for the entire 24-hour period.

    (8) The owner/operator means any person who owns or who operates, controls, or supervises a unit identified in paragraph (a) of this section.

    (9) Unit means any of the units identified in paragraph (a) of this section.

    (c) Emission limitations. (1) The owners/operators of emission units subject to this section shall not emit, or cause to be emitted, NOX in excess of the following limitations:

    (2) These emission limitations shall apply at all times, including startups, shutdowns, emergencies, and malfunctions.

    (d) Compliance date. (1) The owners and operators of PacifiCorp Hunter Units 1 and 2 shall comply with the NOX emission limitation of 0.07 lb/MMBtu and other requirements of this section by August 4, 2021. The owners and operators of PacifiCorp Huntington Units 1 and 2 shall comply with the NOX emission limitation of 0.07 lb/MMBtu and other requirements of this section by August 4, 2021.

    (2) [Reserved]

    (e) Compliance determinations for NOX. (1) For all BART units:

    (i) CEMS. At all times after the earliest compliance date specified in paragraph (d) of this section, the owner/operator of each unit shall maintain, calibrate, and operate a CEMS, in full compliance with the requirements found at 40 CFR part 75, to accurately measure NOX, diluent, and stack gas volumetric flow rate from each unit. The CEMS shall be used to determine compliance with the emission limitations in paragraph (c) of this section for each unit.

    (ii) Method. (A) For any hour in which fuel is combusted in a unit, the owner/operator of each unit shall calculate the hourly average NOX emission rate in lb/MMBtu at the CEMS in accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR part 75. At the end of each operating day, the owner/operator shall calculate and record a new 30-day rolling average emission rate in lb/MMBtu from the arithmetic average of all valid hourly emission rates from the CEMS for the current operating day and the previous 29 successive operating days.

    (B) An hourly average NOX emission rate in lb/MMBtu is valid only if the minimum number of data points, as specified in 40 CFR part 75, is acquired by both the pollutant concentration monitor (NOX) and the diluent monitor (O2 or CO2).

    (C) Data reported to meet the requirements of this section shall not include data substituted using the missing data substitution procedures of subpart D of 40 CFR part 75, nor shall the data have been bias adjusted according to the procedures of 40 CFR part 75.

    (2) [Reserved]

    (f) Recordkeeping. The owner/operator shall maintain the following records for at least five years:

    (1) All CEMS data, including the date, place, and time of sampling or measurement; parameters sampled or measured; and results.

    (2) Records of quality assurance and quality control activities for emissions measuring systems including, but not limited to, any records required by 40 CFR part 75.

    (3) Records of all major maintenance activities conducted on emission units, air pollution control equipment, and CEMS.

    (4) Any other CEMS records required by 40 CFR part 75.

    (g) Reporting. All reports under this section shall be submitted to the Director, Office of Enforcement, Compliance and Environmental Justice, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 8, Mail Code 8ENF-AT, 1595 Wynkoop Street, Denver, Colorado 80202-1129.

    (1) The owner/operator of each unit shall submit quarterly excess emissions reports for NOX BART units no later than the 30th day following the end of each calendar quarter. Excess emissions means emissions that exceed the emissions limits specified in paragraph (c) of this section. The reports shall include the magnitude, date(s), and duration of each period of excess emissions, specific identification of each period of excess emissions that occurs during startups, shutdowns, and malfunctions of the unit, the nature and cause of any malfunction (if known), and the corrective action taken or preventative measures adopted.

    (2) The owner/operator of each unit shall submit quarterly CEMS performance reports, to include dates and duration of each period during which the CEMS was inoperative (except for zero and span adjustments and calibration checks), reason(s) why the CEMS was inoperative and steps taken to prevent recurrence, and any CEMS repairs or adjustments. The owner/operator of each unit shall also submit results of any CEMS performance tests required by 40 CFR part 75.

    (3) When no excess emissions have occurred or the CEMS has not been inoperative, repaired, or adjusted during the reporting period, such information shall be stated in the quarterly reports required by paragraphs (g)(1) and (2) of this section.

    (h) Notifications. (1) The owner/operator shall promptly submit notification of commencement of construction of any equipment which is being constructed to comply with the NOX emission limits in paragraph (c) of this section.

    (2) The owner/operator shall promptly submit semi-annual progress reports on construction of any such equipment.

    (3) The owner/operator shall promptly submit notification of initial startup of any such equipment.

    (i) Equipment operation. At all times, the owner/operator shall maintain each unit, including associated air pollution control equipment, in a manner consistent with good air pollution control practices for minimizing emissions.

    (j) Credible evidence. Nothing in this section shall preclude the use, including the exclusive use, of any credible evidence or information, relevant to whether a source would have been in compliance with requirements of this section if the appropriate performance or compliance test procedures or method had been performed.
