Applicability of standard for visible emissions
and standard for particulate matter. (Repealed.) A. The standard for visible emissions in 9VAC5-40-80 shall
not apply to the rocket motor test operations at the facility. B. No owner or other person shall cause or permit to be
discharged into the atmosphere from the rocket motor test operations at the
facility any particulate matter emissions in excess of 714 pounds per hour. C. Subsections A and B of this section do not apply to
operations at the facility other than rocket motor test operations.
Compliance determination, monitoring,
recordkeeping, and reporting. (Repealed.) A. The owner shall monitor and record the time, date, and
duration of each rocket motor test operation. The owner shall also monitor and
record the quantities (specified in pounds) of solid propellant expended during
each rocket motor test operation and shall calculate hourly totals of the
quantities of propellant used in these operations. B. The owner shall use a method acceptable to the board for
calculating particulate matter emissions from the rocket motor test operations.
Using this method and the hourly totals of the quantities of solid propellant
expended, the owner shall calculate and record the hourly quantities (specified
in pounds) of particulate matter emissions. C. Using the information required in subsections A and B of
this section, the owner shall calculate and record the hourly particulate
matter emissions resulting from the rocket motor test operations to demonstrate
compliance with the emission rate specified in 9VAC5-221-30 B. D. The provisions of 9VAC5-40-40 and 9VAC5-40-50 apply.
Transfer of ownership. (Repealed.) A. The terms of this chapter are transferable to a new
