Stationary air pollution sources issued a permit to operate by the Air Resources Division are required to report to DES, at least annually, the data necessary to demonstrate compliance with the permit’s terms and conditions. Minimally, each permitted source must report the emissions generated during the previous calendar year of operation. In general, the larger and more complex the source and the more complicated the permit conditions, the more reporting the source will have to do to meet its obligations under state and federal requirements. Depending on whether the reporting is required by a state or a federal rule, the source may be required to submit its reports solely to DES, or to both DES and the EPA.
Typically, each air permit contains a recordkeeping and a reporting section. The recordkeeping section lists all the information that the source must record and retain to document its compliance with permit conditions. The reporting section lists all the reports that the source must submit to DES and/or EPA and the deadlines for receipt of the reports. Most individual reporting requirements reference corresponding requirements in the recordkeeping section. In some cases, the same information is required to be submitted in more than one report since reports often fulfill different reporting purposes, are required by different rules, or are reviewed by different DES staff within different sections of the ARD Compliance Bureau.
