Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 43368
Filed: 11/13/2018 10:55:42 AM


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

Subsection 19-2-104(1)(c) allows the Air Quality Board to make rules "...requiring persons engaged in operations which result in air pollution to ...file periodic reports containing information relating to the rate, period of emission, and composition of the air contaminant." Rule R307-150 implements that statute by specifying the sources that must submit information, the information that must be submitted, and the due date for submissions. Rule R307-150 meets the requirements of the federal Consolidated Emissions Reporting Rule, 40 CFR 51.30(e) (67 FR 39602).

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

R307-150 has been amended two times since its last five-year review in 2014. DAR 39749 changed any use of the term "contaminant" to "pollutant." DAR 42107 implemented the permit-by-rule and received four comments that were addressed during the adoption of those amendments. No other comments have been received for this rule since the 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:

The state of Utah is required under the federal Consolidated Emissions Reporting Rule (CERR), 40 CFR 51.30(e), to submit inventories of emissions from a variety of sources to the Federal Environmental Protection Agency on a schedule specified in the federal rule. Rule R307-150 specifies the kinds of sources that must submit inventory information to the state in order for the state to meet its responsibilities under the CERR. In addition, the inventory information is required in order to determine the fees paid by sources subject to 40 CFR, Part 70, and Rule R307-415, the Operating Permit Program, and for determining where emission reductions can be achieved if needed for Utah to remain in attainment of the federal health standards for air quality. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
