General Permits

Title V Facilities

Under 15A NCAC 02Q .0509, DAQ may issue a permit to cover numerous similar facilities or sources provided the following conditions are met:

  1. There is no difference between the facilities or sources that would require special permit conditions for any individual facility or source; AND
  2. No unique analysis is required for any facility or source covered by the permit.

General permits issued under 02Q .0509 shall identify criteria by which facilities or sources may qualify for the permit. To facilities or sources that qualify, the Director shall grant the terms and conditions of the permit.

NOTE: If you apply for and receive a General Permit, you will be subject to enforcement action for operating without a permit if your facility or source is later determined not to qualify for the terms and conditions of the General Permit.

Sources subject to Title IV shall not be eligible for a permit issued pursuant to this Rule.

If your facility or source qualifies for a General Permit issued pursuant to 02Q .0509, you shall apply for coverage by the terms of the permit issued pursuant to 02Q .0509 or shall apply for a standard permit for each facility or source pursuant to 02Q .0500.

General Permits issued pursuant to 02Q .0509 are not required to undergo the public participation procedures pursuant to 15A NCAC 02Q .0521.
