a. All unpaved surfaces and irregular paved surfaces identified in Attachment 1 (map) shall be treated in accordance with the schedule in Attachment 1, following the initial establishment of chemical ground inventory, with a chemical dust suppressant (petroleum resin emulsions, asphalt emulsions or acrylic cements) on a year-round (twelve-month) basis, except as provided under Sections B.1.e., B.1.f. and D below. The dust suppressant application intensity and frequency during the first two months of this program shall be sufficient to achieve the ground inventory specified in Section B.1.d. by the end of the two-month period.

b. Tri-weekly, monthly and quarterly applications shall be accomplished before the end of the first full week of the tri-week/month/quarter except as provided under Sections B.1.e., B.1.f. and D below.

c. For each dust suppressant application during the initial two-month period of the dust control program, the concentrated dust suppressant shall be diluted at a ratio of not more than five (5) parts water to one (1) part concentrate and the resulting solution shall be applied at a minimum rate of 1.0 gallon per square yard of unpaved or irregular paved surface. The dust suppressant shall be applied at sufficient intervals and intensities after the initial two-month period as to maintain the ground inventory. Except as provided in Sections B.1.f. and D below, the continuing program shall provide for the application of dust suppressant specified in Attachment 1 diluted by no more than seven (7) parts water to one part chemical and applied at a rate of not less than 0.5 gallon per square yard of unpaved or irregular paved surface.

d. A minimum ground inventory of 0.25 gallon of concentrate per square yard of road surface, as specified in Section 3.0 of the USEPA reference document Control of Open Fugitive Dust Sources (EPA-450/3-88-008) shall be maintained.

e. Applications of dust suppressant may be delayed by not more than three (3) days for any scheduled date upon which the unpaved or irregular paved surface is snow and/or ice covered or has experienced > 0.25 inch of rainfall.

f. In the event of persistent adverse weather conditions such as snow and/or ice cover or excessive rainfall, the Company may petition the Director or his representative verbally with written confirmation within three (3) days for extended exemptions which may be granted as deemed appropriate by the Director or his representative.

g. Applications of chemical dust suppressant for the second year (after establishment of the ground inventory specified in Section B.1.d.) and beyond may follow the revised schedule, application intensities, and application concentrations shown in Table 11 of Attachment 1.

2. Compliance with Section B.1. shall be determined in accordance with procedures set forth in this Appendix.

3. Control Equipment

The Company shall ensure the availability, required scheduling, and proper maintenance of spray trucks that are designed and equipped, at minimum, with a 2,000 gallon capacity tank, a spray bar system capable of applying the dust suppressant solution at a coverage rate of at least 1.3 gallons per square yard of surface, a certified flow metering device calibrated in units of gallons per minute, and an apparatus that will facilitate manual applications of the solution to areas not readily accessible by the spray truck.

4. Recordkeeping and Reporting

a. The Company shall maintain records relative to the program to control emissions from unpaved roads, parking lots, laydown, entrance, unloading areas and berms, and irregular paved surfaces identified in Attachment 1. These records shall include, at a minimum, the following information:

The PM10 emission rate for each individual network segment identified in Attachment 1 shall be reported along with the total PM10 emission rate for each facility. The PM10 emission rates shall be calculated using the methodology specified in Section A.3. of this Appendix and shall reflect the road network as it exists at the end of each calendar year. Each annual report shall be submitted by no later than January 31 of the succeeding year.

5. The Company shall implement the dust control measures of Section C no later than the effective date of this rule.

D. Changes to Paved and Unpaved Road/Area Dust Control Programs

1. The Company has the right to petition the Ohio EPA for written approval of definitive treatment methods, treatment schedules and procedures or reporting requirements different from those required herein. No action shall be taken by the Company in employing the alternative practices until the Director or his representative issues a written approval to the Company. Such alternative practices must be demonstrated to the Director or his representative to result in equivalent dust control effectiveness in accordance with Control of Open Fugitive Dust Sources (EPA-450/3-88-008). The Company reserves the right to contest any disapproval of such petition in the appropriate judicial forum.

2. In the event that the Company certifies that all of a roadway or area identified in Attachment 1 has been discontinued, the dust suppression or surface cleaning program for that road or area may be terminated or reduced. If the Company begins to utilize any new roadway, parking lot or other vehicular activity area not shown in Attachment 1, it shall notify the Director or his representative in the reports required under this Appendix and treat or clean the road or area in accordance with the procedures contained herein, unless more stringent requirements are specified in any permit to install issued by the Ohio EPA for such roadway or area.

3. The Director or his representative shall not be precluded from requesting adjustments, including increased chemical suppressant application or cleaning, if on-site inspections reveal that the program contained herein does not prevent excessive visible dust entrainment and emissions from a particular road or area.

4. In the event that an unpaved road or area that has been chemically treated becomes completely hardened and cemented by such treatment so as to become like a paved road as demonstrated by observation, by compaction tests and silt analyses, or in the event that the Company paves any unpaved road or area, that road or area may be treated as a paved surface and cleaned in accordance with the procedures outlined in Section C.
