Action 4090
General Information
Action Summary Article 6 of 9VAC5-80 (Permits for Stationary Sources) establishes a minor new source review (NSR) permit program for any stationary source that is not a major stationary source subject to either prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) or nonattainment new source review requirements. Unless the new source or project is exempt, owners are required to obtain a permit prior to beginning construction of a new facility or expanding an existing one. It establishes permit application, application review, and public participation requirements; standards for granting permits and general permits; exemptions for small new facilities and projects; and procedures for amending, combining, reopening, transferring, invalidating, suspending, revoking and enforcing permits. This amendment revises the definition of "nonroad engine" as it affects minor NSR permit requirements.
