|(a) Applicability. Unless otherwise specifically stated, these performance standards apply to all dry cleaning facilities, including those that have a nonparticipating non-perchloroethylene user certificate. (b) Compliance deadlines. (1) Unless otherwise specifically stated in this section, owners of all operating dry cleaning facilities must comply with this section by the deadlines set forth in Texas Health and Safety Code, §374.052(a) and House Bill 1366 (Chapter 540, §3(b)), 78th Legislature, May 24, 2003. (2) Owners of all new dry cleaning facilities shall construct and operate the facilities in compliance with this section. (c) Storage, treatment, and disposal of dry cleaning wastes. Any person at a dry cleaning facility that generates hazardous wastes shall comply with the provisions specified under Chapter 335, Subchapter C of this title (relating to Standards Applicable to Generators of Hazardous Waste). (d) Air emission standards. (1) The owner of a dry cleaning facility shall comply with Chapter 106 of this title (relating to Permits by Rule) or Chapter 116 of this title (relating to Control of Air Pollution by Permits for New Construction or Modification). (2) The owner of a dry cleaning facility using perchloroethylene and any person using perchloroethylene at a dry cleaning facility shall comply with emission standards for hazardous air pollutants as specified in 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 63, Subpart M, in effect September 22, 1993. (3) Each owner of a dry cleaning facility that is a major source as defined in Chapter 122 of this title (relating to Federal Operating Permits Program) shall obtain an operating permit. (e) Dikes and other secondary containment structures. (1) Applicability. This subsection applies to: (A) all dry cleaning facilities using chlorinated dry cleaning solvents; and (B) all other dry cleaning facilities that replace or install a dry cleaning machine on or after September 1, 2005. (2) Compliance deadlines. The compliance deadlines set forth in subsection (b) of this section apply to all dry cleaning facilities with the exception of dry cleaning facilities in operation on or before January 1, 2004, that have gross annual receipts of $150,000 or less (as indicated on the most current registration form filed with the agency). These dry cleaning facilities have until January 1, 2015, to comply with this subsection. However, if before January 1, 2015, a qualifying dry cleaning facility begins to have gross annual receipts greater than $150,000, the dry cleaning facility must meet the requirements of this subsection by August 1 of the year following the time the facility exceeded $150,000 in annual gross receipts. (3) Installation. (A) Each owner of a dry cleaning facility shall install a dike or other secondary containment structure around each dry cleaning unit and around each storage area for dry cleaning solvents, dry cleaning waste, or dry cleaning wastewater. (B) Each secondary containment structure must be maintained in good condition and capable of containing any leak, spill, or release of dry cleaning solvents in accordance with this subsection. (C) Floor drains must not be located within any secondary containment structure required by this subsection. (4) Construction materials. (A) The materials used to construct each secondary containment structure must be impervious to, and compatible with, the dry cleaning solvents, dry cleaning wastes, and dry cleaning wastewater used or stored within the secondary containment structure. (B) For any dry cleaning unit using chlorinated dry cleaning solvents and any storage area for chlorinated dry cleaning solvents, chlorinated dry cleaning wastes, or chlorinated dry cleaning wastewater, materials other than epoxy or steel may be used for the construction of the secondary containment structure only upon approval by the executive director. Approval for the use of a material other than epoxy or steel will be granted upon satisfactory demonstration to the executive director that the material is as compatible with, and impervious to, dry cleaning solvent as epoxy or steel. (C) All sealant and all caulk used on each secondary containment structure must be impervious to and compatible with the dry cleaning solvent, dry cleaning waste, or dry cleaning wastewater used or stored within the secondary containment structure. (5) Storage capacity. (A) Dry cleaning machine. Each secondary containment structure installed after September 1, 2005, must be capable of completely containing a minimum of 110% of the volume of liquids that can be held within the largest tank on a machine. The secondary containment area must be kept free of all materials or objects that would diminish its capacity to contain a leak, spill, or release. (B) Storage area. Each secondary containment structure installed after September 1, 2005, must be capable of completely containing a minimum of 110% of the volume of liquids that can be held within the largest container in a storage area. The secondary containment area must be kept free of all materials or objects that would diminish its capacity to contain a leak, spill, or release. (6) Inspections. The owner of each dry cleaning facility shall visually inspect each installed secondary containment structure weekly to ensure that the structure is not damaged. (A) The owner of each dry cleaning facility shall ensure that any damage is repaired within seven days after the discovery. The owner may request an extension of this time limit from the executive director. If there is a release or imminent threat of release of dry cleaning solvents, the owner shall ensure that any release is immediately contained and controlled and that the dry cleaning machine is temporarily removed from service until the damage is repaired within the seven-day time limit. (B) The owner of each dry cleaning facility shall keep a log of these inspections which include, as a minimum, the following information. This information must be provided to the executive director upon request: (i) the date and time of each inspection; (ii) the name of the person conducting the inspection; (iii) a brief notation of findings; and (iv) the date and nature of each repair or other action taken. (C) For dry cleaning facilities using chlorinated solvents, inspection logs required under this section may be added to the leak inspection and repair records required by 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 63, Subpart M, for dry cleaning equipment containing chlorinated solvent. (D) Each inspection and repair log must be kept at the dry cleaning facility for not less than five years after the log has been completed. (f) Delivery of solvents. (1) Chlorinated dry cleaning solvents. All chlorinated dry cleaning solvents must be delivered to dry cleaning units and solvent storage containers by means of either of the following: (A) a closed, direct-coupled delivery system; or (B) an alternative method submitted to, and approved by, the executive director that provides protection of human health and safety and the environment that is equivalent to or greater than the protection provided by direct-coupled delivery systems. (2) Non-chlorinated dry cleaning solvents, except for carbon dioxide solvents. All non-chlorinated dry cleaning solvents, except for carbon dioxide, must be delivered to dry cleaning units and solvent storage containers in a manner that will minimize releases to the environment.
