Chapter 50. New and Modified Stationary Sources

9VAC5-50-405. Authority to implement and enforce standards as authorized by EPA.

A. This article provides the legally enforceable mechanism to facilitate the Commonwealth's obligation to implement and enforce the federal NSPSs as state requirements.

B. The Commonwealth's delegated authority to implement and enforce the standards designated in 9VAC5-50-410 as authorized by EPA is identified in the documents specified in subdivisions 1 through 5 of this subsection. The Commonwealth's delegated authority extends only to the source categories and pollutants identified in the documents and is subject to the provisions, conditions, and limitations set forth in the following documents:

1. Letter from Daniel J. Snyder dated December 30, 1975.

2. Federal Register notice dated February 26, 1976 (41 FR 8416).

3. Letter from Thomas C. Voltaggio dated July 22, 1981.

4. Federal Register notice dated August 27, 1981 (46 FR 43300).

5. Letter from W. Ray Cunningham dated July 2, 1985.

C. In its delegation notices and letters, EPA automatically delegated to the Commonwealth the authority to implement and enforce future NSPS requirements if the Commonwealth legally adopted the requirements, informed EPA that it intended to enforce the standards in accordance with the terms of the delegation, and met other conditions. The latest letter that the Commonwealth submitted to obtain authority to implement and enforce additional requirements is available for examination as provided in subsection D of this section.

D. Copies of the documents cited in subsections B and C of this section may be examined by the public at the central office of the Department of Environmental Quality, 1111 East Main Street, Suite 1400, Richmond, Virginia between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. of each business day.

E. The documents cited in subsection B of this section establish the terms of the delegation to the Commonwealth to implement and enforce the federal NSPSs as authorized by EPA. As such, the documents place requirements upon the Commonwealth, not the affected facilities; thus the documents are not being incorporated by reference into the regulations of the board but are being cited for information purposes only.
