In addition, Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a) allows the Board to make rules "regarding the control, abatement, and prevention of air pollution from all sources and the establishment of the maximum quantity of air contaminants that may be emitted by any air contaminant source...." Also, Subsection 19-2-109(2)(a) allows the Board to "establish emission control requirements by rule that in its judgment may be necessary to prevent, abate, or control air pollution that may be statewide or may vary from area to area, taking into account varying local conditions." Finally, Subsection 19-2-104(3)(e) allows the Board to "...prepare and develop a comprehensive plan or plans for the prevention, abatement, and control of air pollution in this state." Rule R307-205 protects the public health by reducing emissions from industries, gravel pits, constructions sites, haul trucks, mines, and tailings ponds, as authorized by the above statutes.
