Description of Petition:

Petition 2000-11 (LCB R118-00) is a permanent amendment to NAC 445B.010 to 445B.395 the air pollution control regulations. The petition proposes to amend NAC 445B.264, monitoring system: recordation of data, by removing language regarding six/minute opacity averages being used in calculations. NAC 445B.354, the maximum opacity of emissions is amended to incorporate Title 40 CFR Part 60, Appendix A, Reference Method 9 and that emission units being subject to Title 40 CFR Part 60, subparts D or Da are limited to 27 percent opacity. The existing language requires the use of an aggregate reading to determine opacity, for which no standard reference method exists.
