Text of Regulation Link to Virginia Administrative Code
Goals of Regulation Individual definitions will be reviewed and evaluated in conjunction with the particular provision of the Regulations for the Control and Abatement of Air Pollution (9 VAC 5 Chapters 10-80) which it supports. The general definitions impose no regulatory requirements in and of themselves but provide support to other provisions of the Regulations for the Control and Abatement of Air Pollution. Therefore, there are no specific and measurable goals the definitions are intended to achieve.
