15A NCAC 07K .0204      EXEMPTIONS FOR PROJECTS REQUIRING AIR QUALITY PERMIT

Modification to Existing Sources or Control Devices.  Generally, projects in this category are modifications to facilities or control devices which are necessary for upgrading existing capacities or meeting minimum air quality standards.  Existing abatement devices may be modified or new equipment installed; however, the purpose of such modification is not tied to expanding capabilities.  Projects falling into this category will be exempted from the CAMA major‑development permit if:

(1)           The modification is necessary for upgrading existing capabilities or to meet minimum air quality standards, or

(2)           The modification involves installation of additional abatement devices necessary to meet minimum air quality standards, and

(3)           Such modification does not involve significant land‑disturbing activities or necessitate surface or subsurface disposal of water.
