RULE §115.913Procedures for Alternate Means of Control Plan Submittal

(a) All persons requesting an alternate means of control (AMOC) plan as provided by §115.910 of this title (relating to Availability of Alternate Means of Control) shall submit a proposed AMOC plan and demonstration to the executive director; copies of such plan and demonstration to the appropriate regional office; copies to any local air pollution control program with jurisdiction over the account affected by the AMOC plan; and copies to the EPA regional office.

(b) The proposed AMOC plan shall include the following information:

  (1) the AMOC applicant name with mailing address, site name with physical address, account number, and contact person including address and telephone number;

  (2) an identification and a description of the sources involved in the AMOC plan including any applicable air permit numbers, plot plans, detailed flow diagrams, emission point numbers (EPNs), and facility identification numbers (FINs); an identification of the provisions of this chapter that are applicable to such sources; and an identification of promulgated provisions of this chapter that will be applicable to such sources; and a description of normal operating conditions for each source causing emissions;

  (3) a quantification of the AMOC plan sources' actual emissions for the selected year;

  (4) a quantification of annual emission limits and daily maximum potential emissions from all sources affected by the AMOC showing the difference between projected emissions from the affected source(s) without the AMOC plan and projected emissions resulting under the proposed AMOC plan. These calculations shall be done in accordance with the requirements of §115.912 of this title (relating to Calculations for Determining Alternate Means of Control Reductions). Assumptions and emission factors utilized in the calculations shall be included;

  (5) a specification of emission limitation(s) and control requirement(s) to be applicable to each source affected by the proposed AMOC plan. Emission limitations shall include actual annual emission limits in tons per year for each source. Control requirements must be established for each source to make annual emission limits enforceable;

  (6) a description of the compliance methodologies, including monitoring, testing, reporting, and recordkeeping measures, that will be used to enforce the emission limitation(s) and/or control requirement(s) applicable to each source affected by the AMOC plan;

  (7) a sample of reporting and recordkeeping forms to be utilized;

  (8) a demonstration that the AMOC plan satisfies each applicable requirement of §115.911 of this title (relating to Criteria for Approval of Alternative Means of Control Plans);

  (9) a list containing the name, address, and telephone number of any air pollution control program with jurisdiction over the account affected by the AMOC plan; and

  (10) any other relevant information necessary to evaluate the merits and/or enforceability of the AMOC plan, as may be requested by the executive director.

(c) All representations with regard to the AMOC plan, as well as any provisions attached to the AMOC plan, become conditions upon which the subsequent AMOC plan is issued. It shall be unlawful for any person to vary from such representation or provision if the change will cause a change in the method of control of emissions, the character of the emissions, or will result in an increase in the discharge of the various emissions. It shall also be unlawful for any AMOC holder to vary from the emission limits, control requirements, monitoring, testing, reporting, or recordkeeping requirements of an approved AMOC plan.

(d) Applications to amend or revise an AMOC plan shall be submitted subject to the requirements of this chapter.
