9 VAC 5 CHAPTER 50, NEW AND MODIFIED STATIONARY SOURCES
The regulation establishes standards of performance, consisting of emission limits and control technology requirements, and other requirements which control levels of criteria, designated and welfare-related pollutants being emitted into the ambient air. Also, establishes source surveillance requirements which (i) provide the enforcement basis, specify test methods and procedures, and specify procedures for continuous or process parameter monitoring for determining compliance with the standards of performance; and (ii) require the owner to provide certain notifications, records and reports in order that the Department may determine compliance with standards of performance and other applicable requirements.
The goals of the regulation are to (i) protect public health and/or welfare with the least possible cost and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth; (ii) ensure that owners comply with air pollution emission limits and control technology requirements in order to control levels of criteria and designated pollutants being emitted into the ambient air; (iii) prohibit emissions which would contribute to nonattainment of any air quality standard or interference with maintenance of any standard, or adversely impact public health and/or welfare; and (iv) enable the Department to carry out source surveillance and compliance activities.
