R307-165 establishes the frequency of emission testing requirements for all areas in the state.
Emission testing is required at least once every five years of all sources with established emission limitations specified in approval orders issued under R307-401 or in section IX, Part H of the Utah state implementation plan. In addition, if the director has reason to believe that an applicable emission limitation is being exceeded, the director may require the owner or operator to perform such emission testing as is necessary to determine actual compliance status. Sources approved in accordance with R307-401 will be tested within six months of start-up. The Board may grant exceptions to the mandatory testing requirements of R307-165-2 that are consistent with the purposes of R307.
At least 30 days prior to conducting any emission testing required under any part of R307, the owner or operator shall notify the director of the date, time and place of such testing and, if determined necessary by the director, the owner or operator shall attend a pretest conference.
All tests shall be conducted while the source is operating at the maximum production or combustion rate at which such source will be operated. During the tests, the source shall burn fuels or combinations of fuels, use raw materials, and maintain process conditions representative of normal operations. In addition, the source shall operate under such other relevant conditions as the director shall specify.
The director may reject emissions test data if they are determined to be incomplete, inadequate, not representative of operating conditions specified for the test, or if the director was not provided an opportunity to have an observer present at the test.
