9VAC5-70-60. Control Requirements.

A. After an alert stage has been declared by the board, each owner of a source subject to a standby emission reduction plan under 9VAC5-70-50 and each owner of any other source designated shall, when requested to do so by the board, take such alert stage actions as requested and shall put into effect the requested provisions of the preplanned abatement strategy for an alert stage as set forth in Table VII-A.

B. After a warning stage has been declared by the board, each owner of a source subject to a standby emission reduction plan under 9VAC5-70-50 and each owner of any other source designated shall, when requested to do so by the board, take such warning stage actions as requested and shall put into effect the requested provisions of the preplanned abatement strategy for a warning stage as set forth in Table VII-B.

C. When the board determines that the concentration of a specified criteria pollutant has reached the alert or warning stage levels at one or more monitoring sites solely because of emissions from a limited number of sources it shall notify the owners of such sources that the preplanned abatement strategies of Table VII-A or B or the standby emission reduction plans are required, as applicable, to be put into effect and shall remain in effect until the level of the specified criteria pollutant is within limits.

D. When the board determines that the level of a specific criteria pollutant or a specific type of criteria pollutant caused the declaration of an alert or warning stage and that curtailment of emissions from certain sources would have no effect on that pollutant level, it may determine which standby emission reduction plans and abatement strategies shall be put into effect.

E. After an emergency stage has been declared by the governor, each owner of a source subject to a standby emission reduction plan under 9VAC5-70-50 and each owner of any other source designated shall take such emergency stage actions as required and shall put into effect the preplanned abatement strategy for an emergency stage as set forth in Table VII-C.
