Rule R307-420

Permits: Ozone Offset Requirements in Davis and Salt Lake Counties

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 41641
Filed: 05/15/2017 09:54:16 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 19-2-104 allows the Air Quality Board to promulgate rules that control, abate, and prevent air pollution from all sources. Rule R307-420 does this by implementing ozone offset provisions that require sources to offset increases in emissions before getting an approval order to construct, modify, or relocate under Rule R307-401. The offsetting program is designed to prevent future net increases in air pollution.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

There were no comments on this rule since the last five-year review.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Rule R307-420 is required to minimize the growth in emissions of ozone precursors in Salt Lake and Davis counties. This rule supports Section IX.D (Ozone Maintenance Plan) of the State Implantation Plan, which is incorporated by reference in Section R307-110-13. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
