3745-17-03 Measurement methods and procedures.

[Comment: For dates of non-regulatory government publications, publications of recognized organizations and associations, federal rules, and federal statutory provisions referenced in this rule, see the last paragraph of rule 3745-17-01 of the Administrative Code titled"Incorporation by reference."]

(A) For purposes of ascertaining, defining, and measuring ambient air quality, PM 2.5 and PM10 shall be measured by the methods specified in paragraphs (B)(15) and (B)(16), respectively, of rule 3745-17-01 of the Administrative Code. Such measurements for PM10 shall be corrected to standard conditions for purposes of comparing measurements with the ambient air quality standards set forth in rule 3745-25-02 of the Administrative Code.

(B) Emissions test methods and procedures for all new and existing sources.

(1) For the purpose of determining compliance with paragraph (A)(1) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, visible particulate emissions shall be determined according to the following:

(a) Except as provided in paragraph (B)(1)(b) of this rule, "USEPA Method 9" shall be employed.

(b) As an alternative to the compliance procedures specified in paragraph (B)(1)(a) of this rule, coal-fired boilers with heat input capacities equal to or greater than two hundred fifty million Btu per hour that are controlled with either baghouses or electrostatic precipitators may determine compliance with the visible particulate emission limitations specified in paragraph (A)(1) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code through the use of continuous opacity monitoring data. The continuous opacity monitoring system shall comply with the requirements specified in 40 CFR 60.13 and shall be certified in accordance with the requirements of"USEPA Performance Specification 1." (The continuous opacity monitoring system consists of all the equipment used to acquire data and includes the data recording/processing hardware and software.) During each calendar quarter, the permittee shall be deemed in compliance with paragraph (A)(1) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code if the following conditions are met:

(i) The nonexempt opacity values in excess of twenty per cent opacity are less than 1.10 per cent of the six-minute average opacity values. (Exempt opacity values are defined in paragraphs (A)(1)(b), (A)(2), and (A)(3) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code.)

(ii) None of the nonexempt six-minute average opacity values exceeds sixty per cent.

(iii) The total amount of time, in hours, of exempt and nonexempt opacity values greater than twenty per cent and less than sixty per cent (not including start-up, shutdown, and malfunction exemptions provided in paragraphs (A)(2) and (A)(3) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code) does not exceed the product of 0.10 times the actual number of hours the emissions unit was in operation during the calendar quarter. In the event of a discrepancy between the continuous opacity monitoring data and any observations performed in accordance with paragraph (B)(1)(a) of this rule during the same time period, an evaluation may be performed by the Ohio EPA to assess the accuracy of the continuous opacity monitoring data (which may include an audit of the continuous opacity monitoring system performed in accordance with EPA 340/1-86-010 (recommended quality assurance procedures for opacity continuous emission monitoring systems) and "Acid Rain Program Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS) Field Audit Manual" and the validity of the observations performed in accordance with paragraph (B)(1)(a) of this rule. The Ohio EPA may accept and utilize any data or observation it finds credible. The permittee is not precluded from using any credible evidence in defense of any enforcement action that may be initiated by the Ohio EPA.

(2) For the purpose of determining compliance with paragraph (B)(2) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, pertaining to visible particulate emissions from coke oven batteries:

(a) Charging operations:

(i) The charging period shall begin when the coal from the charging system starts to enter the oven and shall end when the last charge port lid is replaced. Such charging period shall not include the period of time during which the port lids are reopened in order to sweep spilled coal into the oven.

(ii) The observer shall stand on the topside of the coke oven battery such that a good view of all charge ports of the oven being charged and the charging system is possible. The observer may change position to obtain a clear view of all oven ports, drop sleeves, and hoppers. During the charging period, the observer shall watch all the potential emission sources including the charge ports and the entire charging system. Upon observing the release of any visible particulate emission, an accumulative stopwatch shall be started. The watch shall be stopped when the visible particulate emission stops and shall be restarted when a visible particulate emission reappears. The observer shall continue this procedure for the entire charging period. If visible particulate emissions should occur simultaneously from several points during a charge, the visible particulate emissions shall be timed collectively as one continuous visible particulate emission. Furthermore, visible particulate emissions which may start from one source immediately after those from another source shall be timed as one continuous visible particulate emission. The following visible particulate emissions shall not be timed: steam vapor, visible particulate emissions from burning coal that is spilled on top of the oven or oven lid during charging, visible particulate emissions emitted from any equipment other than the charging system or charging ports, visible particulate emissions from closed standpipes during charging, visible particulate emissions emitted from coke oven doors which may rise above the battery and which may be windblown across its topside, and visible particulate emissions that drift from the top of the charging system, but have already been timed as a visible particulate emission from the drop sleeve below the hopper. The time recorded on the stopwatch shall represent the total time that visible particulate emissions are observed during a charge. The number of seconds of visible particulate emissions observed for each charge shall be recorded on a data sheet.

(iii) A minimum of six consecutive charges shall be observed and the time in seconds of visible particulate emissions during such charges shall be totalled. If the observations of a set of consecutive charges is interrupted by an event not in the control of an observer, then the data for the interrupted charge(s) shall be discarded and additional charge(s) shall be observed until the total number of consecutive charges equals at least six. For purposes of this paragraph, charges immediately preceding and following any interrupted or discarded charge(s) shall be deemed consecutive.

(b) Offtake piping and charging hole lids:

(i) The observer shall walk down the length of the top of the battery and shall complete the inspection in an expeditious manner consistent with the safety of the observer. When safety conditions permit, the observer will walk near the center of the battery, but may deviate from this path to obtain a better view of any lid or offtake piping system. Separate traverses may be performed for offtake piping and charging hole lids. If the battery has two collector mains, the observer may make two traverses when observing visible particulate emissions from offtake piping. If an observer elects to make two traverses for a battery which has two collector mains, the observer shall inspect one collector main during the first traverse and inspect the other collector main during the second traverse. During each traverse, the observer shall record the time of the beginning and end of each traverse and the identity of any charging hole or offtake piping system having visible particulate emissions.

(ii) Visible particulate emissions from offtake piping shall include emissions from cracks and/or defects in the piping, emissions from the jointure of the battery to the standpipe, emissions from the standpipe to the gooseneck and gooseneck to the collector main, emissions from the seal between the gooseneck and gooseneck lid, and emissions from opened offtake lids. Visible particulate emissions from charging holes shall include emissions from the seal between the charging hole or stationary jumper pipe lid and its casting, emissions from the charging hole or stationary jumper pipe casting/battery interface, and emissions from opened charging holes or stationary jumper pipe lids. Visible particulate emissions which shall not be included are emissions caused by maintenance work in progress at an oven, emissions caused by the vaporization of wet luting materials, emissions caused by burning or smoldering excess topside coal, and emissions from charging ports and offtake piping during the charging operation. Visible particulate emissions from open offtake piping and charging holes, from a maximum of three ovens, shall be exempt. Regardless of the number of points from which visible particulate emissions are observed from any one offtake piping system, the maximum entry for any oven with a single offtake system shall be one and the maximum entry for any oven with two offtake piping systems shall be two. The maximum number of charging hole leaks recorded for any oven shall not exceed the number of charging holes on that oven.

(iii) The percentage of charging holes and offtake piping with visible particulate emissions shall be determined by totalling the number of charging holes or offtake piping with visible particulate emissions, including that number of opened charging holes and offtake piping with visible particulate emissions which exceeds the amount which is allowed for three ovens, dividing that number by the total number of observed charging holes or offtake piping on operating ovens, and multiplying the result by one hundred per cent. For purposes of this paragraph, any oven which is not out of service for rebuild or maintenance work that is extensive enough to require the oven to be skipped in the charging sequence shall constitute an operating oven. Further, any opened charging hole or offtake piping lids on operating ovens shall be included as observed charging holes and offtake piping.

(c) Oven doors:

(i) The observer shall observe visible particulate emissions by completely walking around the coke oven battery at a steady distance from a position just outside the pusher machine and quencher car tracks as close to the battery as safety and visibility conditions permit. The observer shall traverse each side of a battery expeditiously, recording the time of the beginning and end of each side traverse, the identity of each door having visible particulate emissions, and the identity of any door not observable during the traverse. A visible particulate emission from an individual door shall be noted on an inspection sheet when an observer determines any visible particulate emissions are occurring from any location on the perimeter of a coke oven door or chuck door. Visible particulate emissions observed at the top of the battery above a specific oven door but not clearly attributable to such door shall not be counted in this procedure. An observer shall observe each oven door only once while scanning the perimeter for any visible particulate emissions. After a brief scan of an oven door, the observer shall move along his/her traverse, checking subsequent doors on the battery in a like manner. If a temporary machine obstruction occurs which blocks the view of a series of ovens, the ovens shall be bypassed and the remaining oven doors on that side of the battery shall be observed. After the traverse of such side of the battery, the bypassed oven doors and only those oven doors, may be reobserved. After completing one side, the observer shall proceed directly to the opposite side of the battery and proceed to perform a like traverse while repeating the above procedures. A row of two or more continuous batteries may be inspected by observing all of the pusher side doors and then all of the coke side doors.

(ii) The percentage of oven doors with visible particulate emissions shall be determined by totalling the number of doors with visible particulate emissions, dividing that sum by the total number of observed doors on operating ovens, and multiplying the result by one hundred per cent. For purposes of this paragraph, any oven which is not out of service for a rebuild or maintenance work that is extensive enough to require that oven to be skipped in the charging sequence shall constitute an operating oven. Further, any doors that are removed from operating ovens shall constitute unobserved doors.

(d) For any pushing operations, visible particulate emissions shall be determined according to "USEPA Method 9" with the following modifications:

(i) Paragraph 2.5 ("Data Reduction") of "USEPA Method 9" shall not be used; and

(ii) Visible particulate emission readings shall be recorded at fifteen-second intervals during each pushing operation observed and the average reading during each such operation shall be determined by summing the opacity readings and dividing this sum by the number of observations during that pushing operation.

(3) For the purpose of determining compliance with paragraphs (B)(1), (B)(3), (B)(7)(a)(i), (B)(7)(b), (B)(7)(c), and (B)(8)(a) to (B)(8)(d) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, paragraphs (C)(3)(c), (D)(3), (F)(4)(c), (I)(1), (L)(3), (O)(1), (P)(2), (V)(4)(c), (W)(2), (X)(2), and (X)(3) of rule 3745-17-12 of the Administrative Code, or with paragraph (D)(4)(a) of rule 3745-17-13 of the Administrative Code, visible emissions of fugitive dust shall be determined according to"USEPA Method 9" with the following modifications:

(a) For paragraphs (B)(1), (B)(7)(b), (B)(7)(c), (B)(8)(b), (B)(8)(d), and (B)(9) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, the data reduction and average opacity calculation shall be based upon sets of twelve consecutive visible emission observations recorded at fifteen-second intervals.

(b) Opacity observations shall be made from a position that provides the observer a clear view of the source and the fugitive dust with the sun behind the observer. A position at least fifteen feet from the source is recommended. To the extent possible, the line of sight should be approximately perpendicular to the flow of fugitive dust and to the longer axis of the emissions. Except as provided in paragraphs (B)(3)(d) and (B)(3)(e) of this rule, opacity observations shall be made for the point of highest opacity within the fugitive dust. Since the highest opacity usually occurs immediately above or downwind of the source, the observer should normally concentrate on the area(s) of the plume close to the source. For purposes of paragraphs (B)(7)(b) and (B)(8)(b) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, observations shall be made where the fugitive dust plume is distinctly separate from the falling material and from the surface of the pile.

(c) (Reserved).

(d) For paragraphs (B)(7)(a)(i), (B)(8)(a), and (B)(8)(c) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code and paragraphs (I)(1), (O)(1), and (P)(2) of rule 3745-17-12 of the Administrative Code:

(i) A data set shall consist of twelve observations based on four uninterrupted vehicle passes, three observations per vehicle pass, using "USEPA Method 9." The initial observation shall be taken immediately after passage of the first vehicle, at the point of highest opacity within the fugitive dust, and at four feet above the surface of the roadway or parking area. Two additional observations shall be taken at the same point as the initial observation and at five seconds and ten seconds after the initial reading. The same procedure shall be conducted for the next three vehicle passes. If any interruption in observations during any vehicle pass occurs, the observation(s) taken during that vehicle pass shall be discarded and the next vehicle pass shall be observed. For vehicle traffic on top of any material storage pile, the observer may observe passes of the same vehicle or vehicles, at identical of different points atop the pile, in order to obtain readings for four vehicle passes.

(ii) The data reduction and average opacity calculation shall be based upon the average of twelve observations in each data set.

(e) For paragraph (B)(7)(c) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, observations of fugitive dust resulting from a vehicle's movement upon a coal storage pile shall be made at a point no less than one vehicle length from the rear of the vehicle and at an elevation no lower than the maximum height of the vehicle. For purposes of this rule, vehicle length and height shall be based upon the length and height of the vehicle being observed.

(4) For the purpose of determining compliance with paragraphs (B)(4) to (B)(6), (B)(7)(a)(ii), and (B)(7)(d) of rule 3745-17-07 of the Administrative Code, paragraphs (B), (C)(1), (C)(2), (E), (F)(1) to (F)(3), (K), (M)(1), (M)(2), (Q)(1), (S)(4)(b), (U)(1), (U)(2), (V)(1) to (V)(3), (W)(1), (X)(1), (X)(4), (Y)(1) to (Y)(3), and (Z) of rule 3745-17-12 of the Administrative Code, or with paragraph (B) of rule 3745-17-13 of the Administrative Code, visible emissions of fugitive dust shall be determined according to"USEPA Method 22" with the following modifications:

(a) If the observer's view is obscured and observations must be terminated prior to completing the necessary or desired observation period, the observer shall clearly note this fact on the observation form. When the observer's view of the source is no longer obscured, the observations shall recommence to complete the observation period.

(b) The observer shall identify on the observation form all interruptions due to rest breaks.

(c) For the purpose of determining compliance with the applicable visible emission limitation, the observations, excluding break periods and periods of obscured vision, shall be considered continuous.

(d) For any roadway or parking area, the observer shall determine the presence and duration of visible particulate matter at the same point of the potential emissions and at a height approximately four feet above the surface of the roadway or parking area.

(5) Visible particulate emission readings other than those referenced in paragraph (B)(4) of this rule shall be determined by observers qualified according to tests and procedures set forth in "USEPA Method 9."

(A) This rule applies to installations in which fuel, including any product or by-product of a manufacturing process, is burned for the primary purpose of producing heat or power by indirect heat transfer.

(B) For purposes of this rule the actual heat input shall be the aggregate heat content of all fuels whose products of combustion emanate from a single fuel burning unit. The maximum capacity shall be the equipment manufacturer's or designer's guaranteed maximum heat input, whichever is greater. Unless otherwise specified in paragraphs (B)(1) to (B)(4) of this rule, the total heat input of all fuel burning units on a plant or premises which are united either physically or operationally shall be the total of the maximum capacities for all such units. The total heat input shall be used for determining the maximum allowable amount of particulate emissions per million Btu of actual heat input from any single fuel burning unit.

(1) Any new or existing fuel burning equipment which is fired only with gaseous fuels and/or number two fuel oil and which is physically or operationally united with other fuel burning equipment on a plant or premises shall not be included by the director for purposes of determining the total heat input and maximum allowable particulate emissions per million Btu of actual heat input for such other fuel burning equipment. The maximum allowable amount of particulate emissions for any new or existing fuel burning equipment which is fired only with gaseous fuels, excluding blast furnace gas, and/or number two fuel oil shall be 0.020 pound per million Btu of actual heat input. The maximum allowable amount of particulate emissions for any new or existing fuel burning equipment which is fired only with blast furnace gas or any mixture of blast furnace gas with other gaseous fuels and/or number two fuel oil shall be 0.040 pound per million Btu of actual heat input.

(2) Stand-by fuel burning equipment which is physically or operationally united with other fuel burning equipment on a plant or premises shall be exempted by the director for purposes of determining total heat input and maximum allowable particulate emissions per million Btu of actual heat input for such other fuel burning equipment. Except as provided in paragraph (B)(1) of this rule, the total heat input for such other fuel burning equipment shall be used for determining the maximum allowable amount of particulate emissions per million Btu of actual heat input for any stand-by fuel burning equipment.

(3) Derating of fuel burning equipment.

(a) For purposes of this paragraph, fuel burning equipment shall include, where appropriate, all equipment on a plant or premises which are united either physically or operationally.

(b) Upon request, the director may specify the total heat input for fuel burning equipment at a derated value which is less than the total maximum capacity of such equipment if, in the director's judgment, the equipment will not be operated so that the actual heat input exceeds the derated value. Any owner or operator requesting derating of fuel burning equipment shall demonstrate to the director, with such steam charts, records of fuel consumption and fuel quality, and other data as are necessary, that the actual heat input from the equipment will not exceed the derated total heat input value.

(c) The terms and conditions of any permit, variance, or order for equipment which has been granted a derated total heat input value shall prohibit the operation of such equipment at a level in excess of the derated total heat input value. The director may include in any such permit, variance, or order requirements for the monitoring and reporting of the actual heat input of the equipment.

3745-17-11 Restrictions on particulate emissions from industrial processes.

(A) General provisions:

(1) This rule applies to any operation, process, or activity which releases or may release particulate emissions into the ambient air except:

(a) The burning of fuel for the primary purpose of producing heat or power by indirect heating in which the products of combustion do not come into direct contact with process materials;

(b) The burning of refuse;

(c) The processing of salvageable material by burning;

(d) The loading of ships and the drying of grain at grain elevator operations;

(e) Salt glazing in a gas-fired periodic brick or tile kiln, for a period of not more than two hours during any twenty-one consecutive days of operation of said kiln;

(f) The generation of fugitive dust which the director has determined is subject to rule 3745-17-08 of the Administrative Code;

(g) Any such operation, process, or activity which is subject to a particulate emission limitation contained in rule 3745-17-12 or 3745-17-13 of the Administrative Code;

(h) Surface coating processes that apply only dip coatings, roll coatings, flow coatings, or brush coatings;

(i) Surface coating processes that use less than five gallons of coatings per day, provided the owner or operator maintains coating usage records, coating purchase records, and/or production records that clearly demonstrate the actual coating usage is less than five gallons per day;

(j) Surface coating processes (e.g., for sealers, adhesives, and deadeners) that employ airless spray and bead-type (extrusion) application methods;

(k) Surface coating processes that employ hand-held cup spray guns;

(l) Surface coating processes for which the owner or operator demonstrates to the satisfaction of the director that, due to the large size of the item(s) being coated, it is technically infeasible and/or economically unreasonable (in terms of cost-effectiveness) to employ an enclosure (or hooding) and control device for the control of the particulate emissions (any such exemption approved by the director must be approved by the United States environmental protection agency as a revision of the state implementation plan); and

(m) Jet engine test cells and stands.

(2) Emission restriction requirements for sources, which are not subject to the requirements of paragraph (B)(4), (B)(5), (B)(6) or (C) of this rule or which are not exempted under paragraph (A)(1) of this rule, are specified in "Figure II" and in "Table I" in the appendix to this rule. "Figure II" in the appendix to this rule relates uncontrolled mass rate of emission (abscissa) to maximum allowable mass rate of emission (ordinate). A source complies with the requirements of "Figure II" in the appendix to this rule if its particulate emission rate, even during operation at the maximum capacity of the source, is always equal to or less than the allowable mass rate of emission of particulate matter (A) based upon the uncontrolled mass rate of emission (U). "Table I" in the appendix to this rule relates process weight of materials introduced into any specific process (at its maximum capacity) that may result in particulate emissions to maximum allowable mass rate of emission. A source complies with the requirements of "Table I" in the appendix to this rule if its rate of particulate emission, even during operation at the process weight rate (P) which reflects the maximum capacity of the source, is always equal to or less than the allowable rate of particulate emission specified by the appropriate equation appearing at the bottom of "Table I" in the appendix to this rule and incorporating the process weight rate (P) which reflects the maximum capacity of the source. Except as otherwise indicated in paragraphs (A)(2)(a) to (A)(2)(c) of this rule, the more stringent of the two requirements shall apply.

(a) "Figure II" in the appendix to this rule shall not apply:

(i) To any source where the uncontrolled mass rate of emission cannot be ascertained;

(ii) To any source with an uncontrolled mass rate of emission of less than ten pounds per hour; or

(iii) To any fluid catalytic cracking unit at a petroleum refinery.

(b) "Table I" in the appendix to this rule shall not apply:

(i) To any source where the process weight rate cannot be ascertained; or

(ii) To any source which is located within the counties specified in paragraphs (B)(2) and (B)(3) of this rule, except as provided in paragraph (A)(2)(c) of this rule.

(c) "Table I" in the appendix to this rule shall apply to any fluid catalytic cracking unit at a petroleum refinery.

(3) For purposes of "Figure II" in the appendix to this rule, the total uncontrolled mass rate of emission from all similar process units at a plant, such units being united either physically or operationally, or otherwise located in close proximity to each other, shall be used for determining the maximum allowable mass rate of particulate emissions that pass through a stack or stacks from all such units.

(4) For purposes of "Table I" in the appendix to this rule, process weight per hour is the total weight of all materials introduced into any single, specific process (at its maximum capacity) that may cause any emission of particulate matter. Solid fuels charged will be considered as part of the process weight, but liquid and gaseous fuels and combustion air will not. For a cyclical or batch operation, the process weight per hour will be derived by dividing the total process weight by the number of hours in one complete operation from the beginning of any given process to the completion thereof, excluding any time during which the equipment is idle. For a continuous operation, the process weight per hour will be derived by dividing the process weight for a given period of time by the number of hours in that period. For fluid catalytic cracking units at petroleum refineries, "process weight" shall mean the total weight of recirculated catalyst and cold catalyst introduced into the catalyst regenerator.

(5) An air contaminant source can be subject to both of the requirements of rule 3745-17-08 of the Administrative Code and this rule if it is a fugitive dust source, as defined in paragraph (B)(7) of 3745-17-01 of the Administrative Code, and also emits, by means of one or more stacks, particulate matter that is subject to a limitation(s) in rule 3745-17-08 of the Administrative Code.

(B) Emission limitations:

(1) Except as specified in paragraph (B)(4) , (B)(5), (B) (6) or (C) of this rule, any owner or operator of a source of particulate emissions which is located within the following counties shall operate said source so that the particulate emissions do not exceed the allowable emission rate specified by "curve P-1" of "Figure II" or by "Table I" in the appendix to this rule, whichever is applicable under paragraph (A)(2) of this rule: Adams, Allen, Ashtabula, Athens, Belmont, Brown, Butler, Clark, Clermont, Clinton, Columbiana, Coshocton, Cuyahoga, Darke, Defiance, Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Gallia, Geauga, Greene, Hamilton, Henry, Jackson, Jefferson, Lake, Lawrence, Licking, Lorain, Lucas, Madison, Mahoning, Medina, Meigs, Miami, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Pickaway, Portage, Preble, Richland, Ross, Sandusky, Scioto, Seneca, Shelby, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Union, Warren, Washington, Wyandot and Wood.

(2) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (B)(4), (B)(5) or (C) of this rule, any owner or operator of a source of emissions which is located within the following counties shall operate said source so that the particulate emissions do not exceed the allowable emission rate specified by "curve P-2" of "Figure II" in the appendix to this rule: Ashland, Auglaize, Carroll, Champaign, Crawford, Fulton, Guernsey, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison, Holmes, Knox, Logan, Marion, Mercer, Morrow, Paulding, Putnam, Tuscarawas, Van Wert, Wayne and Williams.

(3) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (B)(4), (B)(5) or (C) of this rule, any owner or operator of a source of particulate emissions which is located within the following counties shall operate said source so that the particulate emissions do not exceed the allowable emission rate specified by "curve P-3" of "Figure II" in the appendix to this rule: Erie, Fayette, Highland, Hocking, Huron, Ottawa, Pike and Vinton.

(4) Any owner or operator of a stationary gas turbine shall not cause or permit the particulate emissions from the turbine's exhaust to exceed 0.040 pound per million Btu of actual heat input.

(5) Any owner or operator of a stationary internal combustion engine shall not cause or permit the particulate emissions from the engine's exhaust to exceed the following:

(a) 0.310 pound per million Btu of actual heat input for a stationary small internal combustion engine; and

(b) 0.062 pound per million Btu of actual heat input for a stationary large internal combustion engine.

(6) The "LTV Steel Company" (OEPA premise number 1318001613) or any subsequent owner or operator of the "LTV Steel Company" facility located at 3100 East 45th street, Cleveland, Ohio shall not cause or permit the particulate emissions from the 84-inch hot strip mill reheat furnaces (OEPA source numbers P046 through P048) to exceed 19.8 pounds per hour per furnace.

(C) Requirements for surface coating processes:

(1) Any surface coating process not exempt under paragraphs (A)(1)(h) to (A)(1)(l) of this rule shall be controlled by a dry particulate filter, waterwash, or equivalent control device or devices.

(2) Any surface coating process not exempt under paragraphs (A)(1)(h) to (A)(1)(k) of this rule shall follow all of these work practices:

(a) The owner or operator shall maintain documentation of the manufacturer's recommendations, instructions, or operating manuals for the control devices with any modifications deemed necessary by the owner or operator during the time period in which the control devices are utilized.

(b) The owner or operator shall operate the control devices in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, instructions, or operating manuals with any modifications deemed necessary by the owner or operator.

(c) The owner or operator shall conduct periodic inspections of the control devices to determine whether the devices are operating in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, instructions, or operating manuals with any modifications deemed necessary by the owner or operator. The periodic inspections of each control device shall be performed at a frequency that is based upon the recommendation of the manufacturer of the control device, and the owner or operator shall maintain a copy of the manufacturer's recommended inspection frequency. In addition to these periodic inspections, not less than once each calendar year the owner or operator shall conduct a comprehensive inspection of the control device while the emissions unit is shut down and perform any needed maintenance and repair for the control device to ensure that it is able to routinely operate in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.

(d) The owner or operator shall document each inspection of a control device by maintaining a record that includes the date of the inspection, a description of each problem identified and the date it was corrected, a description of the maintenance and repairs performed, and the name of the person who performed the inspection.

(e) In the event that the control devices are not operating in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, instructions, or operating manuals with any modifications deemed necessary by the owner or operator, the control devices shall be expeditiously repaired or otherwise returned to operation in accordance with such requirements. The owner or operator shall maintain documentation of those periods when the control devices are not operating in accordance with such requirements.

(f) Any documentation required under paragraphs (C)(2)(d) and (C)(2)(e) of this rule shall be maintained for not less than five years.

(g) Any documentation required under paragraphs (C)(2)(a) to (C)(2)(e) of this rule shall be maintained at the facility and shall be made available to Ohio EPA upon request.

(3) Any surface coating process with a permit-to-install issued after January 1, 1990 that identifies particulate emission limitations and control measures based on best available technology, best available control technology, or the lowest achievable emission rate shall comply with such limitations and measures instead of paragraphs (C)(1) and (C)(2) of this rule.

If the required reductions cannot reasonably be obtained from those sources, control strategies may be developed for other sources at the facility in order to meet the required reductions for the facility.

(3) In calculating the control strategy, hourly particulate emission rate for a source, the maximum operating rate for the source shall be used. In addition, for a source identified in rule 3745-17-12 or 3745-17-13 of the Administrative Code, the baseline, hourly particulate emission rate shall be based upon the allowable emission rate specified in those rules and the maximum operating rate; and the control strategy must be designed to reduce the particulate emissions below that baseline, hourly particulate emission rate. For a source which is not identified in rule 3745-17-12 or 3745-17-13 of the Administrative Code, the baseline, hourly particulate emission rate shall be based upon the actual or allowable emission rate, whichever is lower, and the maximum operating rate; and the control strategy must be designed to reduce the particulate emissions below that baseline, hourly particulate emission rate.

(4) The following information shall be submitted for each source for which a control strategy is developed:

(a) A description of the source and the existing control equipment and/or control measures;

(b) The Ohio EPA application number;

(c) The hourly, baseline particulate emission rate, and the assumptions and calculations which were used to derive the emission rate;

(d) A description of the type of control equipment and/or control measures which will be employed to reduce the hourly emission rate, including the general design specifications and/or operating parameters;

(e) The hourly particulate emission rate that will be achieved by employing the proposed control equipment and/or control measures, and the assumptions and calculations which were used to derive the emission rate; and

(f) The approximate total installed cost and annual operating cost for the proposed control equipment and/or control measures, and the assumptions and calculations which were used to derive the costs.

(5) The schedule for implementing each control strategy shall commence upon a formal determination and notification by the Ohio EPA or the United States environmental protection agency that the county where the facility is located is not in compliance with the ambient air quality standards for PM10, as specified in rule 3745-25-02 of the Administrative Code. The schedule shall include dates for the following milestones:

(a) Award contracts for emission control systems or process modifications, or issue orders for the purchase of component parts to accomplish emission control or process modification.

(b) Initiate on-site construction or installation of emission control equipment or process change.

(c) Complete on-site construction or installation of emission control equipment or process change.

(d) Achieve final compliance. The owner or operator shall demonstrate to the satisfaction of the director that the schedule is as expeditious as practicable.

(B) The control strategies and compliance schedules submitted in accordance with paragraph (A) of this rule shall be approved by the director through the issuance, pursuant to division (R) of section 3704.03 of the Ohio Revised Code, of administrative findings and orders. The findings and orders shall be submitted to and approved by the United States environmental protection agency as a revision to the Ohio state implementation plan for particulates.

(C) Upon a formal determination and notification by the Ohio EPA or the United States environmental protection agency that Cuyahoga county or Jefferson county is not in compliance with the ambient air quality standards for PM10, as specified in rule 3745-25-02 of the Administrative Code, the owner or operator of each facility identified in paragraph (A)(1) of this rule shall implement the control strategies and schedules which have been approved by the director.(Such formal determination and notification of nonattainment shall not occur prior to January 1, 1994.) If the determination and notification of nonattainment are based upon a twenty-four-hour average ambient air concentration of PM10 of greater than one hundred fifty micrograms per cubic meter and less than or equal to one hundred seventy-two and one half micrograms per cubic meter, the owner or operator of each affected facility shall implement the set of approved control strategies and compliance schedules which are designed to reduce the hourly particulate emission rate by fifteen per cent or more.
