(A) Any person who cannot comply with the requirements set forth in rule 3745-112-03 of the Administrative Code, because of extraordinary reasons beyond the person's reasonable control may apply in writing to the director for a variance. The variance application shall set forth:
(1) The specific grounds upon which the variance is sought;
(3) A compliance report reasonably detailing the method(s) by which compliance will be achieved.
(B) No variance shall be granted unless all of the following findings are made:
(2) That the public interest in mitigating the extraordinary hardship to the applicant by issuing the variance outweighs the public interest in avoiding any increased emissions of air contaminants which would result from issuing the variance; and
(3) That the compliance report proposed by the applicant can reasonably be implemented, and will achieve compliance as expeditiously as possible.
(C) Any variance order shall specify a final compliance date by which the requirements of rule 3745-112-03 of the Administrative Code will be achieved. Any variance order shall contain a condition that specifies increments of progress necessary to assure timely compliance, and such other conditions that the director finds necessary.
