9VAC5-530-80. Enforcement of a General Permit.

A. The following general requirements apply:

1. Pursuant to § 10.1-1322 of the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law, failure to comply with any term or condition of the general permit shall be considered a violation of the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law.

2. An owner who (i) violates or fails, neglects, or refuses to obey any provision of this chapter or the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law, any applicable requirement, or any permit term or condition; (ii) knowingly makes any false statement, representation or certification in any form, in any notice or report required by a permit; or (iii) knowingly renders inaccurate any required monitoring device or method shall be subject to the provisions of §§ 10.1-1307, 10.1-1309, 10.1-1316, 10.1-1318, and 10.1-1320 of the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law.

B. Violation of this permit is subject to the enforcement provisions including, but not limited to, those contained in 9VAC5-170 (Regulation for General Administration) and §§ 10.1-1309, 10.1-1309.1, 10.1-1311, and 10.1-1316 of the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law.

C. If any condition, requirement, or portion of this general permit is held invalid or inapplicable under any circumstance, such invalidity or inapplicability shall not affect or impair the remaining conditions, requirements, or portions of this general permit.

D. The owner shall comply with all applicable conditions of this general permit. Any noncompliance with this general permit constitutes a violation of the Virginia Air Pollution Control Law and is grounds for (i) enforcement action or (ii) suspension or revocation of the authorization to operate under this general permit.

E. It shall not be a defense for an owner in an enforcement action that it would have been necessary to halt or reduce the permitted activity in order to maintain compliance with the conditions of this general permit.

F. The authorization to operate under this general permit may be suspended or revoked for cause as specified in 9VAC5-530-80. The filing by an owner of a (i) request for reauthorization to operate under this general permit or (ii) notification of termination, planned changes, or anticipated noncompliance does not stay any condition of this general permit.

G. This general permit does not convey any property rights of any sort or any exclusive privilege.

H. Within 30 days of notification, the owner shall furnish to the department any information that the department may request in writing to determine whether cause exists for suspending or revoking the authorization to operate under this general permit or to determine compliance with this general permit. Upon request, the owner shall also furnish to the department copies of records required to be kept by this general permit and, for information claimed to be confidential, the owner shall furnish such records to the department along with a claim of confidentiality meeting the requirements of 9VAC5-170-60.
