|(a) Multiple plant permit amendments. All representations in
an application for a multiple plant permit, as well as any general and special
conditions contained in the permit, become conditions upon which the subsequent
multiple plant permit is issued. It shall be unlawful for any person to vary
from such representation or condition if the change is a modification, a change
in the method of control of emissions, or will result in an increase in emissions,
unless application is made to the commission to amend the multiple plant permit
in that regard and such amendment is approved by the commission. Applications
to amend a multiple plant permit shall be submitted with a completed Form
PI-1 and are subject to the requirements of §116.116(b) of this title
(relating to Changes to Facilities).
(b) Multiple plant permit alterations.
(1) A multiple plant permit alteration is for any variation
from a representation in a multiple plant permit application or a general
or special condition of a multiple plant permit that does not require a multiple
plant permit amendment.
(2) All multiple plant permit alterations which may involve
a change in a general or special condition contained in the permit, or affect
control equipment performance must receive prior approval by the executive
director. The executive director shall be notified in writing of all other
multiple plant permit alterations within ten days of implementing the change,
unless the permit provides for a different method of notification. Any multiple
plant permit alteration request or notification shall include information
sufficient to demonstrate that the change does not interfere with the owner
or operator's previous demonstrations of compliance with the requirements
of §116.1011 of this title, including the protection of public health
and welfare. The appropriate commission regional office and any local air
pollution program having jurisdiction shall be provided copies of all multiple
plant permit alteration documents.
(c) Permit by rule under Chapter 106 of this title (relating
to Permits by Rule) in lieu of permit amendment or alteration.
(1) Notwithstanding subsections (a) or (b) of this section,
no permit amendment or alteration is required if the changes to the permitted
facility qualify for a permit by rule under Chapter 106 of this title unless
prohibited by permit provision as provided in §116.1015 of this title
(relating to General and Special Conditions). All such changes to a permitted
facility authorized by Chapter 106 of this title, shall be incorporated into
that facility's permit at such time as the permit is amended or renewed.
(2) Emission increases authorized by Chapter 106 of this
title, at an existing facility covered by a multiple plant permit shall not
cause an exceedance of the aggregate emissions cap or individual emission
