PUBLIC NOTICE

SAN# 2006-21

1. Title of the Regulations:

1138 Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories

.

2. Brief Synopsis of the Subject, Substance and Issues:

Delaware adopted by reference the federal Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standard applicable to chromium electroplating and anodizing tanks (40 CFR Part 63 Subpart N) into Regulation No. 1138 (formerly 38) on September 1, 1999. Since this initial adoption, the EPA has revised the federal MACT standard several times. These EPA revisions have changed the federal MACT standard's Title V permit requirement, emission limits, definitions, compliance provisions and performance test requirements.

The purpose of this amendment to Subpart N of Regulation No. 1138 is to be consistent, where appropriate, with federal requirements. One of the federal changes, which the Department proposes to include, will permanently exempt small area sources from Title V permitting requirements. These sources will still be subject to the MACT requirements through their air permits under Regulation 1102.

With this rulemaking, the Department will also amend Subpart N to be consistent with the Delaware Administrative Code format. The Department will also change from our past adoption by reference format and provide the complete regulatory text. This latter change will eliminate the need for the public and regulated community to interpret the adopted federal standards and the changes made when the Department originally adopted these standards into Regulation No. 1138.

3. Possible Terms of the Agency Action:

None

4. Statutory Basis or Legal Authority to Act:

7 Delaware Code, Chapter 60.

Subpart N 6.0 Emission Standards for Chromium Emissions From Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks

6.1 Applicability and designation of sources.

6.1.1 The affected source to which the provisions of Section 6.0 of this regulation apply is each chromium electroplating or chromium anodizing tank at facilities performing hard chromium electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, or chromium anodizing.

6.1.2 Owners or operators of affected sources subject to the provisions of Section 6.0 of this regulation must also comply with the requirements of subpart A of this regulation, according to the applicability of subpart A of this regulation to such sources, as identified in Table 1 of Section 6.0.

6.1.3 Process tanks associated with a chromium electroplating or chromium anodizing process, but in which neither chromium electroplating nor chromium anodizing is taking place, are not subject to the provisions of Section 6.0 of this regulation. Examples of such tanks include, but are not limited to, rinse tanks, etching tanks, and cleaning tanks. Likewise, tanks that contain a chromium solution, but in which no electrolytic process occurs, are not subject to Section 6.0. An example of such a tank is a chrome conversion coating tank where no electrical current is applied.

6.1.4 Affected sources in which research and laboratory operations are performed are exempt from the provisions of Section 6.0 of this regulation when such operations are taking place.

6.1.5 The Department has determined, pursuant to the criteria under Sec. 3 of Regulation 30 of the State of Delaware "Regulations Governing the Control of Air Pollution", that an owner or operator of the following types of operations that are not by themselves major sources and that are not located at major sources, as defined in Regulation 30, is permanently exempt from title V permitting requirements for that operation:

(i) Any decorative chromium electroplating operation or chromium anodizing operation that uses fume suppressants as an emission reduction technology; and

(ii) Any decorative chromium electroplating operation that uses a trivalent chromium bath that incorporates a wetting agent as a bath ingredient.

(2) An owner or operator of any other affected source subject to the provisions of this subpart is subject to title V permitting requirements of Regulation 30. These affected sources, if not major or located at major sources as defined in Regulation 30, are deferred by the Department from title V permitting requirements until December 9, 2004. All sources receiving deferrals shall submit title V permit applications by December 9, 2005. All sources receiving deferrals still must meet the compliance schedule as stated in Sec. 63.343. The owner or operator of an area source subject to Section 6.0 of this regulation is exempt from the obligation to obtain a Title V operating permit under Regulation 30 of State of Delaware "Regulations Governing the Control of Air Pollution", if the owner or operator is not required to obtain a Title V operating permit under subsection 3.a. of Regulation 30 for a reason other than the owner or operator's status as an area source under Section 6.0. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, the owner or operator shall continue to comply with the provisions of Section 6.0 applicable to area sources.

"Base metal" means the metal or metal alloy that comprises the work piece.

"Bath component" means the trade or brand name of each component in trivalent chromium plating baths. For trivalent chromium baths, the bath composition is proprietary in most cases. Therefore, the trade or brand name for each component can be used; however, the chemical name of the wetting agent contained in that component must be identified.

"Chemical fume suppressant" means any chemical agent that reduces or suppresses fumes or mists at the surface of an electroplating or anodizing bath; another term for fume suppressant is mist suppressant.

"Chromic acid" means the common name for chromium anhydride (CrO3).

"Chromium anodizing" means the electrolytic process by which an oxide layer is produced on the surface of a base metal for functional purposes (e.g., corrosion resistance or electrical insulation) using a chromic acid solution. In chromium anodizing, the part to be anodized acts as the anode in the electrical circuit, and the chromic acid solution, with a concentration typically ranging from 50 to 100 grams per liter (g/L), serves as the electrolyte.

"Chromium anodizing tank" means the receptacle or container along with the following accompanying internal and external components needed for chromium anodizing: rectifiers fitted with controls to allow for voltage adjustments, heat exchanger equipment, circulation pumps, and air agitation systems.

Chromium electroplating or chromium anodizing tank means the receptacle or container in which hard or decorative chromium electroplating or chromium anodizing occurs.

"Composite mesh-pad system" means an add-on air pollution control device typically consisting of several mesh-pad stages. The purpose of the first stage is to remove large particles. Smaller particles are removed in the second stage, which consists of the composite mesh pad. A final stage may remove any re-entrained particles not collected by the composite mesh pad.

"Decorative chromium electroplating" means the process by which a thin layer of chromium (typically 0.003 to 2.5 microns) is electrodeposited on a base metal, plastic, or undercoating to provide a bright surface with wear and tarnish resistance. In this process, the part or parts serve as the cathode in the electrolytic cell and the solution serves as the electrolyte. Typical current density applied during this process ranges from 540 to 2,400 Amperes per square meter (amp/m2) for total plating times ranging between 0.5 to 5 minutes.

"Electroplating or anodizing bath" means the electrolytic solution used as the conducting medium in which the flow of current is accompanied by movement of metal ions for the purposes of electroplating metal out of the solution onto a work piece or for oxidizing the base material.

"Emission limitation" means, for the purposes of Section 6.0 of this regulation, the concentration of total chromium allowed to be emitted expressed in milligrams per dry standard cubic meter (mg/dscm), or the allowable surface tension expressed in dynes per centimeter (dynes/cm).

"Fresh water" means water, such as tap water, that has not been previously used in a process operation or, if the water has been recycled from a process operation, it has been treated and meets the effluent guidelines for chromium wastewater.

"Hard chromium electroplating or industrial chromium electroplating" means a process by which a thick layer of chromium (typically 1.3 to 760 microns) is electrodeposited on a base material to provide a surface with functional properties such as wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction, hardness, and corrosion resistance. In this process, the part serves as the cathode in the electrolytic cell and the solution serves as the electrolyte. Hard chromium electroplating process is performed at current densities typically ranging from 1,600 to 6,500 amp/m2 for total plating times ranging from 20 minutes to 36 hours depending upon the desired plate thickness.

"Hexavalent chromium" means the form of chromium in a valence state of +6.

"Large, hard chromium electroplating facility" means a facility that performs hard chromium electroplating and has a maximum cumulative potential rectifier capacity greater than or equal to 60 million ampere-hours per year (amp-hr/yr).

This report shall be followed by a letter within 7 working days after the end of the event, unless the owner or operator makes alternative reporting arrangements, in advance, with the Department.

6.3.6.3.5 The owner or operator shall keep the written operation and maintenance plan on record after it is developed to be made available for inspection, upon request, by the Department for the life of the affected source or until the source is no longer subject to the provisions of Section 6.0 of this regulation. In addition, if the operation and maintenance plan is revised, the owner or operator shall keep previous (i.e., superseded) versions of the operation and maintenance plan on record to be made available for inspection, upon request, by the Department for a period of 5 years after each revision to the plan.

6.3.6.3.6 To satisfy the requirements in 6.3.6.3 of this section, the owner or operator may use applicable standard operating procedure (SOP) manuals, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) plans, or other existing plans, provided the alternative plans meet the requirements in 6.3 of this section.

6.3.7 The standards in this section that apply to chromic acid baths shall not be met by using a reducing agent to change the form of chromium from hexavalent to trivalent.

The owner or operator shall establish as the site-specific operating parameter the surface tension of the bath using Method 306B in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 63, setting the maximum value that corresponds to compliance with the applicable emission limitation. In lieu of establishing the maximum surface tension during the performance test, the owner or operator may accept 45 dynes/cm as measured by a stalagmometer or 35 dynes/cm as measured by a tensiometer as the maximum surface tension value that corresponds to compliance with the applicable emission limitation. However, the owner or operator is exempt from conducting a performance test only if the criteria in 6.4.2.2 of this section are met.

6.4.3.5.2 On and after the date on which the initial performance test is required to be completed under Sec. 63.7 of subpart A of this regulation, the owner or operator of an affected source shall monitor the surface tension of the electroplating or anodizing bath. Operation of the affected source at a surface tension greater than the value established during the performance test, or greater than 45 dynes/cm as measured by a stalagmometer or 35 dynes/cm as measured by a tensiometer if the owner or operator is using this value in accordance with 6.4.3.5.1 of this section, shall constitute noncompliance with the standards. The surface tension shall be monitored according to the following schedule:

6.4.3.5.2.1 The surface tension shall be measured once every 4 hours during operation of the tank with a stalagmometer or a tensiometer as specified in Method 306B in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 63.

6.4.3.5.2.2 The time between monitoring can be increased if there have been no exceedances. The surface tension shall be measured once every 4 hours of tank operation for the first 40 hours of tank operation after the compliance date. Once there are no exceedances during 40 hours of tank operation, surface tension measurement may be conducted once every 8 hours of tank operation. Once there are no exceedances during 40 hours of tank operation, surface tension measurement may be conducted once every 40 hours of tank operation on an ongoing basis, until an exceedance occurs. The minimum frequency of monitoring allowed by Section 6.0 of this regulation is once every 40 hours of tank operation.

6.4.3.5.2.3 Once an exceedance occurs as indicated through surface tension monitoring, the original monitoring schedule of once every 4 hours must be resumed. A subsequent decrease in frequency shall follow the schedule laid out in 6.4.3.5.2.2 of this section. For example, if an owner or operator had been monitoring an affected source once every 40 hours and an exceedance occurs, subsequent monitoring would take place once every 4 hours of tank operation. Once an exceedance does not occur for 40 hours of tank operation, monitoring can occur once every 8 hours of tank operation. Once an exceedance does not occur for 40 hours of tank operation on this schedule, monitoring can occur once every 40 hours of tank operation.

6.4.3.5.3 Once a bath solution is drained from the affected tank and a new solution added, the original monitoring schedule of once every 4 hours must be resumed, with a decrease in monitoring frequency allowed following the procedures in 6.4.3.5.2.2 and 6.4.3.5.2.3 of this section.

6.4.3.6 Foam blanket-type fume suppressants.

In lieu of establishing the minimum foam blanket thickness during the performance test, the owner or operator may accept 2.54 centimeters (1 inch) as the minimum foam blanket thickness that corresponds to compliance with the applicable emission limitation. All foam blanket measurements must be taken in close proximity to the work piece or cathode area in the plating tank or tanks.

6.4.3.6.2 On and after the date on which the initial performance test is required to be completed under Sec. 63.7 of subpart A of this regulation, the owner or operator of an affected source shall monitor the foam blanket thickness of the electroplating or anodizing bath. Operation of the affected source at a foam blanket thickness less than the value established during the performance test, or less than 2.54 cm (1 inch) if the owner or operator is using this value in accordance with 6.4.3.6.1 of this section, shall constitute noncompliance with the standards. The foam blanket thickness shall be measured according to the following schedule:

6.4.3.6.2.1 The foam blanket thickness shall be measured once every 1 hour of tank operation.

6.4.3.6.2.2 The time between monitoring can be increased if there have been no exceedances. The foam blanket thickness shall be measured once every hour of tank operation for the first 40 hours of tank operation after the compliance date. Once there are no exceedances for 40 hours of tank operation, foam blanket thickness measurement may be conducted once every 4 hours of tank operation. Once there are no exceedances during 40 hours of tank operation, foam blanket thickness measurement may be conducted once every 8 hours of tank operation on an ongoing basis, until an exceedance occurs. The minimum frequency of monitoring allowed by Section 6.0 of this regulation is once per 8 hours of tank operation.

6.4.3.6.2.3 Once an exceedance occurs as indicated through foam blanket thickness monitoring, the original monitoring schedule of once every hour must be resumed. A subsequent decrease in frequency shall follow the schedule laid out in 6.4.3.6.2.2 of this section. For example, if an owner or operator had been monitoring an affected source once every 8 hours and an exceedance occurs, subsequent monitoring would take place once every hour of tank operation. Once an exceedance does not occur for 40 hours of tank operation, monitoring can occur once every 4 hours of tank operation. Once an exceedance does not occur for 40 hours of tank operation on this schedule, monitoring can occur once every 8 hours of tank operation.

6.4.3.6.3 Once a bath solution is drained from the affected tank and a new solution added, the original monitoring schedule of once every hour must be resumed, with a decrease in monitoring frequency allowed following the procedures in 6.4.3.6.2.2 and 6.4.3.6.2.3 of this section.

6.4.3.7 Fume suppressant/add-on control device.

6.4.3.7.1 If the owner or operator of an affected source uses both a fume suppressant and add-on control device and both are needed to comply with the applicable emission limit, monitoring requirements as identified 6.4.3.1 through 6.4.3.6 of this section, and the work practice standards operation and maintenance practices of Table 6.3-1 in 6.3 of this section, apply for each of the control techniques used.

6.4.3.7.2 If the owner or operator of an affected source uses both a fume suppressant and add-on control device, but only one of these techniques is needed to comply with the applicable emission limit, monitoring requirements as identified in 6.4.3.1 through 6.4.3.6 of this section, and work practice standards the operation and maintenance practices of Table 6.3-1 in 6.3 of this section, apply only for the control technique used to achieve compliance.

This method should also be followed when wetting agent type or combination wetting agent/foam blanket type fume suppressants are used to control chromium emissions from a hard chromium electroplating tank and surface tension measurement is conducted to demonstrate continuous compliance.

6.5.4.4 The owner or operator of a source required to measure the velocity pressure at the inlet to an add-on air pollution control device in accordance with 6.4.3.2 of this section, shall establish the site-specific velocity pressure as follows:

6.5.4.4.1 Locate a velocity traverse port in a section of straight duct that connects the hooding on the plating tank or tanks with the control device. The port shall be located as close to the control system as possible, and shall be placed a minimum of 2 duct diameters downstream and 0.5 duct diameter upstream of any flow disturbance such as a bend, expansion, or contraction (see Method 1 in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 60). If 2.5 diameters of straight duct work do not exist, locate the port 0.8 of the duct diameter downstream and 0.2 of the duct diameter upstream from any flow disturbance.

6.5.4.4.2 A 12-point velocity traverse of the duct to the control device shall be conducted along a single axis according to Method 2 in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 60 using an S-type pitot tube; measurement of the barometric pressure and duct temperature at each traverse point is not required, but is suggested.

6.5.4.5.2.1 Free from pluggage as possible and away from any flow disturbances such as cyclonic demisters.

6.5.4.5.2.2 Situated such that no air infiltration at measurement site will occur that could bias the measurement.

6.5.4.5.3 Pressure taps shall be constructed of either polyethylene, polybutylene, or other nonreactive materials.

6.5.4.5.4 Nonreactive plastic tubing shall be used to connect the pressure taps to the device used to measure pressure drop.

6.5.4.5.5 Any of the following pressure gauges can be used to monitor pressure drop: a magnehelic gauge, an inclined manometer, or a "U" tube manometer.

6.5.4.5.6 Prior to connecting any pressure lines to the pressure gauge or gauges, each gauge should be zeroed. No calibration of the pressure gauges is required.

6.5.5 Special compliance provisions for multiple sources controlled by a common add-on air pollution control device.

6.5.5.1 This section identifies procedures for measuring the outlet chromium concentration from an add-on air pollution control device that is used to control multiple sources that may or may not include sources not affected by Section 6.0 of this regulation.

6.5.5.2 When multiple affected sources performing the same type of operation (e.g., all are performing hard chromium electroplating) and subject to the same emission limitation are controlled with an add-on air pollution control device that is not controlling emissions from any other type of affected operation or from any nonaffected sources, the applicable emission limitation identified in 6.3 of this section must be met at the outlet of the add-on air pollution control device.

6.5.5.3 When multiple affected sources performing the same type of operation and subject to the same emission limitation are controlled with a common add-on air pollution control device that is also controlling emissions from sources not affected by these standards, the following procedures should be followed to determine compliance with the applicable emission limitation in 6.3 of this section:

6.5.5.3.1 Calculate the cross-sectional area of each inlet duct (i.e., uptakes from each hood) including those not affected by the standard.

6.5.5.3.2 Determine the total sample time per test run by dividing the total inlet area from all tanks connected to the control system by the total inlet area for all ducts associated with affected sources, and then multiply this number by 2 hours. The calculated time is the minimum sample time required per test run.

6.5.5.3.3 Perform Method 306 testing and calculate an outlet mass emission rate.

6.5.5.3.4 Determine the total ventilation rate from the affected sources (VRinlet) by using equation 1:

VRinlet = VRtot * IDAi / IAtotal (1)

where:

VRinlet = the total ventilation rate from all inlet ducts

associated with affected sources;

VRtot = the average total ventilation rate in dscm/min for

the three test runs as determined at the outlet by

means of the Method 306 testing;

IDAi = the total inlet area for all ducts associated with

affected sources; and

IAtotal = the sum of all inlet duct areas from both affected

and nonaffected sources.

6.5.5.3.5 Establish the allowable mass emission rate of the system (AMRsys) in milligrams of total chromium per hour (mg/hr) using equation 2:

AMRsys = VRinlet * EL * 60 minutes/hour (2)

where:

AMRsys = the allowable mass emission rate of the

system in mg/hr;

VRinlet = the average total ventilation rate in

dscm/min for the three test runs from the affected

sources; and

EL = the applicable emission limitation in 6.3 of this

section in mg/dscm.

The allowable mass emission rate (AMRsys) calculated from equation 2 should be equal to or more than the outlet three-run average mass emission rate determined from Method 306 testing in order for the source to be in compliance with the standard.

6.5.5.4 When multiple affected sources performing different types of operations (e.g., hard chromium electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, or chromium anodizing) are controlled by a common add-on air pollution control device that may or may not also be controlling emissions from sources not affected by these standards, or if the affected sources controlled by the common add-on air pollution control device perform the same operation but are subject to different emission limitations (e.g., because one is a new hard chromium plating tank and one is an existing small, hard chromium plating tank), the following procedures should be followed to determine compliance with the applicable emission limitation in 6.3 of this section:

6.5.5.4.1 Follow the steps outlined in 6.5.5.3.1 through 6.5.5.3.3 of this section.

6.5.5.4.2 Determine the total ventilation rate for each type of affected source (Vrinlet,a) using equation 3:

VRinlet,a = VRtot * IDAi,a / IAtotal (3)

where:

VRinlet,a = the total ventilation rate from all inlet

ducts conveying chromic acid from each

type of affected source performing the

same operation, or each type of affected

source subject to the same emission

imitation;

VRtot = the average total ventilation rate in

dscm/min for the three test runs as

determined at the outlet by means of the

Method 306 testing;

IDAi,a = the total inlet duct area for all ducts

conveying chromic acid from each type

of affected source performing the same

operation, or each type of affected

source subject to the same emission

limitation; and

IAtotal = the sum of all duct areas from both

affected and nonaffected sources.

6.5.5.4.3 Establish the allowable mass emission rate in mg/hr for each type of affected source (AMR) that is controlled by the add-on air pollution control device using equation 4, 5, 6, or 7 as appropriate:

AMRhc1 = VRhc1 * ELhc1 * 60 minutes/hour (4)

AMRhc2 = VRhc2 * ELhc2 * 60 minutes/hour (5)

AMRdc = VRdc * ELdc * 60 minutes/hour (6)

AMRca = VRca * ELca * 60 minutes/hour (7)

where:

AMR = the allowable mass emission rate in mg/

hr for each type of affected source;

VR = the total ventilation rate from all inlet

ducts conveying chromic acid;

EL = the applicable emission limitation in 6.3

of this section in mg/dscm. There are

two equations for hard chromium

electroplating tanks because different

emission limitations may apply (e.g., a

new tank versus an existing, small tank);

and

"hc" applies to the total of ventilation rates for all hard

chromium electroplating tanks subject to the same

emission limitation;

"dc" applies to the total of ventilation rates for the decorative

chromium electroplating tanks; and

"ca" applies to the total of ventilation rates for the chromium

anodizing tanks.

6.5.5.4.4 Establish the allowable mass emission rate (AMRsys) in mg/hr for the system using equation 8, including each type of affected source as appropriate:

AMRsys = AMRhc1 + AMRhc2 + AMRdc + AMRca (8)

The allowable mass emission rate calculated from equation 8 should be equal to or more than the outlet three-run average mass emission rate determined from Method 306 testing in order for the source to be in compliance with the standards.

6.5.5.5 Each owner or operator that uses the special compliance provisions in 6.5.5 of this section to demonstrate compliance with the emission limitations in 6.3 of this section shall submit the measurements and calculations to support these compliance methods with the notification of compliance status required in 6.8.5 of this section.

6.5.5.6 Each owner or operator that uses the special compliance provisions in 6.5 of this section to demonstrate compliance with the emission limitations in 6.3 of this section shall repeat these procedures if a tank is added or removed from the control system regardless of whether that tank is a nonaffected source. If the new nonaffected tank replaces an existing nonaffected tank of the same size and is connected to the control system through the same size inlet duct then this procedure does not have to be repeated.

6.5.6 Compliance provisions for the mass rate emission standard for enclosed hard chromium electroplating tanks.

6.5.6.1 Procedures for calculating the maximum allowable mass emission rate for owners or operators who choose to meet the mass emission rate standard in 6.3.3.2.4 of this section.

6.5.6.1.1 The owner or operator of an enclosed hard chromium electroplating tank that is an affected source other than an existing affected source located at a small hard chromium electroplating facility who chooses to meet the mass emission rate standard in 6.3.3.2.4 of this section shall determine compliance by not allowing the mass rate of total chromium in the exhaust gas stream discharged to the atmosphere to exceed the maximum allowable mass emission rate (MAMER) calculated using equation 9:

MAMER = ETSA * K * 0.015 mg/dscm (9)

where:

MAMER = the alternative emission rate for enclosed hard

chromium electroplating tanks in mg/hr;

ETSA = the hard chromium electroplating tank surface

area in square feet (ft2); and

K = the conversion factor, 425 dscm/(ft2 -hr).

6.5.6.1.2 Compliance with the alternative mass emission limit is demonstrated if the three-run average mass emission rate determined from testing using Method 306 in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 63 is less than or equal to the maximum allowable mass emission rate (MAMER) calculated from equation 9.

6.5.6.2 Procedures for calculating the maximum allowable mass emission rate for owners or operators of small hard chromium electroplating tanks who choose to meet the mass emission rate standard in 6.3.3.2.5 of this section.

6.5.6.2.1 The owner or operator of an enclosed hard chromium electroplating tank that is an existing affected source located at a small hard chromium electroplating facility who chooses to meet the mass emission rate standard in 6.3.3.2.5 of this section shall determine compliance by not allowing the mass rate of total chromium in the exhaust gas stream discharged to the atmosphere to exceed the maximum allowable mass emission rate (MAMER) calculated using equation 10:

MAMER = ETSA * K * 0.03 mg/dscm (10)

where:

MAMER = the alternative emission rate for enclosed hard

chromium electroplating tanks in mg/hr;

ETSA = the hard chromium electroplating tank surface

area in square feet (ft2); and

K = the conversion factor, 425 dscm/(ft2-hr).

6.5.6.2.2 Compliance with the alternative mass emission limit is demonstrated if the three-run average mass emission rate determined from testing using Method 306 in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 63 is less than or equal to the maximum allowable mass emission rate (MAMER) calculated from equation 10.

The report shall contain the information identified in 6.8.7.3 of this section, and shall be submitted semiannually except when:

6.8.7.1.1 The Department determines on a case-by-case basis that more frequent reporting is necessary to accurately assess the compliance status of the source or

6.8.7.1.2 The monitoring data collected by the owner or operator of the affected source in accordance with 6.4.3 of this section show that the emission limit has been exceeded, in which case quarterly reports shall be submitted. Once an owner or operator of an affected source reports an exceedance, ongoing compliance status reports shall be submitted quarterly until a request to reduce reporting frequency under 6.8.7.2 of this section is approved.

6.8.7.2 Request to reduce frequency of ongoing compliance status reports.

6.8.7.2.1 An owner or operator who is required to submit ongoing compliance status reports on a quarterly (or more frequent basis) may reduce the frequency of reporting to semiannual if all of the following conditions are met:

6.8.7.2.1.1 For 1 full year (e.g., 4 quarterly or 12 monthly reporting periods), the ongoing compliance status reports demonstrate that the affected source is in compliance with the relevant emission limit;

6.8.7.2.1.2 The owner or operator continues to comply with all applicable recordkeeping and monitoring requirements of subpart A and Section 6.0 of this regulation; and

6.8.7.2.1.3 The Department does not object to a reduced reporting frequency for the affected source, as provided in 6.8.7.2.2 and 6.8.7.2.3 of this section.

6.8.7.2.2 The frequency of submitting ongoing compliance status reports may be reduced only after the owner or operator notifies the Department in writing of his or her intention to make such a change, and the Department does not object to the intended change. In deciding whether to approve a reduced reporting frequency, the Department may review information concerning the source's entire previous performance history during the 5-year recordkeeping period prior to the intended change, or the recordkeeping period since the source's compliance date, whichever is shorter. Records subject to review may include performance test results, monitoring data, and evaluations of an owner or operator's conformance with emission limitations and work practice standards operation and maintenance practices. Such information may be used by the Department to make a judgment about the source's potential for noncompliance in the future. If the Department disapproves the owner or operator's request to reduce reporting frequency, the Department will notify the owner or operator in writing within 45 days after receiving notice of the owner or operator's intention. The notification from the Department to the owner or operator will specify the grounds on which the disapproval is based. In the absence of a notice of disapproval within 45 days, approval is automatically granted.

6.8.7.2.3 As soon as the monitoring data required in 6.4.3 of this section show that the source is not in compliance with the relevant emission limit, the frequency of reporting shall revert to quarterly, and the owner shall state this exceedance in the ongoing compliance status report for the next reporting period. After demonstrating ongoing compliance with the relevant emission limit for another full year, the owner or operator may again request approval from the Department to reduce the reporting frequency as allowed in 6.8.7.2 of this section.

6.8.7.3 Contents of ongoing compliance status reports. The owner or operator of an affected source for which compliance monitoring is required in accordance with 6.4.3 of this section shall prepare a summary report to document the ongoing compliance status of the source. The report must contain the following information:

6.8.7.3.1 The company name and address of the affected source;

6.8.7.3.2 An identification of the operating parameter that is monitored for compliance determination, as required in 6.4.3 of this section;

6.8.7.3.3 The relevant emission limitation for the affected source, and the operating parameter value, or range of values, that correspond to compliance with this emission limitation as specified in the notification of compliance status required in 6.8.5 of this section;

6.8.7.3.4 The beginning and ending dates of the reporting period;

6.8.7.3.5 A description of the type of process performed in the affected source;

6.8.7.3.6 The total operating time of the affected source during the reporting period;

6.8.7.3.7 If the affected source is a hard chromium electroplating tank and the owner or operator is limiting the maximum cumulative rectifier capacity in accordance with 6.3.3.2 of this section, the actual cumulative rectifier capacity expended during the reporting period, on a month-by-month basis;

6.8.7.3.8 A summary of operating parameter values, including the total duration of excess emissions during the reporting period as indicated by those values, the total duration of excess emissions expressed as a percent of the total source operating time during that reporting period, and a breakdown of the total duration of excess emissions during the reporting period into those that are due to process upsets, control equipment malfunctions, other known causes, and unknown causes;

6.8.7.3.9 A certification by a responsible official, as defined in Sec. 63.2 of subpart A of this regulation, that the work practice standards operation and maintenance practices in 6.3.6 of this section were followed in accordance with the operation and maintenance plan for the source;

6.8.7.3.10 If the operation and maintenance plan required in 6.3.6.3 of this section was not followed, an explanation of the reasons for not following the provisions, an assessment of whether any excess emission or parameter monitoring exceedances are believed to have occurred, and a copy of the report or reports required in 6.3.6.3.4 of this section documenting that the operation and maintenance plan was not followed;

6.8.7.3.11 A description of any changes in monitoring, processes, or controls since the last reporting period;

6.8.7.3.12 The name, title, and signature of the responsible official who is certifying the accuracy of the report; and

6.8.7.3.13 The date of the report.

6.8.7.4 When more than one monitoring device is used to comply with the continuous compliance monitoring required in 6.4.3 of this section, the owner or operator shall report the results as required for each monitoring device. However, when one monitoring device is used as a backup for the primary monitoring device, the owner or operator shall only report the results from the monitoring device used to meet the monitoring requirements of Section 6.0 of this regulation. If both devices are used to meet these requirements, then the owner or operator shall report the results from each monitoring device for the relevant compliance period.

6.8.8 Ongoing compliance status reports for area sources. The requirements in 6.8.8 of this section do not alleviate affected area sources from complying with the requirements of Regulations 1102 and 30 of the State of Delaware "Regulations Governing the Control of Air Pollution".

6.8.8.1 The owner or operator of an affected source that is located at an area source site shall prepare a summary report to document the ongoing compliance status of the affected source. The report shall contain the information identified in 6.8.7.3 of this section, shall be completed annually and retained on site, and made available to the Department upon request. The report shall be completed annually except as provided in 6.8.8.2 of this section.

6.8.8.2 Reports of exceedances.

6.8.8.2.1 If both of the following conditions are met, semiannual reports shall be prepared and submitted to the Department:

6.8.8.2.1.1 The total duration of excess emissions (as indicated by the monitoring data collected by the owner or operator of the affected source in accordance with 6.4.3 of this section) is 1 percent or greater of the total operating time for the reporting period and

6.8.8.2.1.2 The total duration of malfunctions of the add-on air pollution control device and monitoring equipment is 5 percent or greater of the total operating time.

6.8.8.2.2 Once an owner or operator of an affected source reports an exceedance as defined in 6.8.8.2.1 of this section, ongoing compliance status reports shall be submitted semiannually until a request to reduce reporting frequency under 6.8.8.3 of this section is approved.

6.8.8.2.3 The Department may determine on a case-by-case basis that the summary report shall be completed more frequently and submitted, or that the annual report shall be submitted instead of being retained on site, if these measures are necessary to accurately assess the compliance status of the source.

6.8.8.3 Request to reduce frequency of ongoing compliance status reports.

6.8.8.3.1 An owner or operator who is required to submit ongoing compliance status reports on a semiannual (or more frequent) basis, or is required to submit its annual report instead of retaining it on site, may reduce the frequency of reporting to annual or be allowed to maintain the annual report onsite if all of the following conditions are met:

6.8.8.3.1.1 For 1 full year (e.g., 2 semiannual or 4 quarterly reporting periods), the ongoing compliance status reports demonstrate that the affected source is in compliance with the relevant emission limit;

6.8.8.3.1.2 The owner or operator continues to comply with all applicable recordkeeping and monitoring requirements of subpart A and Section 6.0 of this regulation; and

6.8.8.3.1.3 The Department does not object to a reduced reporting frequency for the affected source, as provided in 6.8.8.3.2 and 6.8.8.3.3 of this section.

6.8.8.3.2 The frequency of submitting ongoing compliance status reports may be reduced only after the owner or operator notifies the Department in writing of his or her intention to make such a change, and the Department does not object to the intended change. In deciding whether to approve a reduced reporting frequency, the Department may review information concerning the source's previous performance history during the 5-year recordkeeping period prior to the intended change, or the recordkeeping period since the source's compliance date, whichever is shorter. Records subject to review may include performance test results, monitoring data, and evaluations of an owner or operator's conformance with emission limitations and work practice standards operation and maintenance practices. Such information may be used by the Department to make a judgment about the source's potential for noncompliance in the future. If the Department disapproves the owner or operator's request to reduce reporting frequency, the Department will notify the owner or operator in writing within 45 days after receiving notice of the owner or operator's intention. The notification from the Department to the owner or operator will specify the grounds on which the disapproval is based. In the absence of a notice of disapproval within 45 days, approval is automatically granted.

6.8.8.3.3 As soon as the monitoring data required in 6.4.3 of this section show that the source is not in compliance with the relevant emission limit, the frequency of reporting shall revert to semiannual, and the owner shall state this exceedance in the ongoing compliance status report for the next reporting period. After demonstrating ongoing compliance with the relevant emission limit for another full year, the owner or operator may again request approval from the Department to reduce the reporting frequency as allowed in 6.8.8.3 of this section.

6.8.9 Reports associated with trivalent chromium baths. The requirements in 6.8.9 of this section do not alleviate affected sources from complying with the requirements of Regulations 1102 and 30 of the State of Delaware "Regulations Governing the Control of Air Pollution". Owners or operators complying with the provisions in 6.3.5 of this section are not subject to 6.8.1 through 6.8.8 of this section, but must instead submit the following reports:

6.8.9.1 Not later than September 11, 1999, submit an initial notification that includes:

6.8.9.1.1 The same information as is required in 6.8.3.1.1 through 6.8.3.1.5 of this section;

6.8.9.1.2 A statement that a trivalent chromium process that incorporates a wetting agent will be used to comply with 6.3.5 of this section; and

6.8.9.1.3 The list of bath components that comprise the trivalent chromium bath, with the wetting agent clearly identified.

6.8.9.2 Within 30 days of the compliance date specified in 6.4.1 of this section or by September 11, 1999, whichever is later, a notification of compliance status that contains an update of the information submitted in accordance with 6.8.9.1 of this section or a statement that the information is still accurate.

6.8.9.3 Within 30 days of a change to the trivalent chromium electroplating process, a report that includes:

6.8.9.3.1 A description of the manner in which the process has been changed and the emission limitation, if any, now applicable to the affected source;

6.8.9.3.2 If a different emission limitation applies, the applicable information required in 9.8.3.1 of this section; and

6.8.9.3.3 The notification and reporting requirements in 6.8.4 through 6.8.8 of this section, which shall be submitted in accordance with the schedules identified in those requirements.
