Budget Program Reminders (3/26/03)
The 2004 ozone season is almost upon
us. For many sources, 2004 marks the first year for
compliance. A brief list of reminders is provided below.
- For sources in the previous OTC NOx
Budget Program, compliance begins May 1, 2004.
- For NOx Budget affected sources
located outside of the OTC region, compliance
begins May 31, 2004. However, affected sources must
begin monitoring NOx emissions on May
- For sources reporting on an ozone season basis, a
linearity check must be successfully completed on
each CEMS prior to May 1. CAMD has also clarified
that another linearity check must be conducted in
the May/June timeframe (provided that this time
period qualifies as a unit QA operating quarter)
even if the pre-ozone season linearity check was
performed in April.
- The results of any QA/QC tests conducted outside
of an ozone season which are used to
quality-assure data for a subsequent ozone season
must be reported in the second quarter EDR of the
new ozone season.
