Permit Conditions

Once a state and applicant have reached agreement on permit conditions, the state will issue a permit and the applicant is required to conform to all of the permit's provisions. Conditions are placed in permits in order to limit, or require some type of action by the source facility. These limits or actions may include:

• Compliance with specific regulations

• Keeping emissions at prescribed levels

• Limiting processing rates, throughput, and hours to match the representations in the permit application

• Limiting toxic emissions

• Requiring proper operation of control devices

• Establishment of monitoring record keeping and reporting mechanisms

Permit modifications are required any time a change is made to operations such that the permit conditions or other information listed on the permit are no longer accurate. This would include such changes as increasing operations beyond the condition limits or a change in ownership.
