Point Source Registration
Section 555c of Title 10, Chapter 23 and section 2822(j)(B)
of Title 3, Chapter 51 require that any person operating or responsible
for the operation of an air contaminant source emitting more than
five tons of "criteria" air contaminants per year shall
register the source annually and pay the designated fees.
The structure of the program is defined in more detail in the Vermont
Air Pollution Control Regulations, Subchapter VIII. A
list of Hazardous Air Contaminants (HACs) are found in Appendices
B & C of the regulations, and other detailed information pertaining
to HACs may be located on the Air
Toxics Program page.
Since Air Contaminant
Registration first became required in 1987, the Vermont Air Division has
compiled a list of sources in the state subject to the requirement.
The State attempts to contact any source which is likely to be subject
to the registration requirement. Once a source comes "aboard"
and information has been processed for the first year of inclusion into
the program, renewal of the registration each year is a relatively simple
If you need
to register a source for the first time, however, the process is slightly
more involved. The Air Division will need to organize your initial
data submittal into a satisfactory representation of individual processes
and stacks for your source (hereinafter referred to as "facility"
because more than one source may comprise an overall facility subject
to Air Registration). The easiest procedure currently is to contact
Dan Riley (802-272-3695),
the administrator of the program, to determine what (if any) information
for your facility already is on file with the state. Additionally,
it is likely that information regarding fuel consumption or process materials
usage for the most recent calendar year must be submitted in hard copy.
After contacting this office you will receive a packet of generic forms
(see below) to aid you in this submittal. Associated with these
forms will be other instructive literature for the facility new to the
Air Registration Program.
database is used to house the registration information the State receives,
and facilitate management of the Registration Program. This database
includes information at the facility, stack, process, and segment level
in a manner consistent with EPA National Emissions Inventory databases
for ease in transfer of information to the Federal Government. This
level of detail is necessary so the State can make an accurate assessment
of actual annual emissions for the calendar year in question. The
data submitted for registration requirements is also utilized by other
sections in the Air Division. The Registration database is not yet
available for public viewing, although some useful summary lists have
been provided here:
At this time
no electronic submittal of the Registration forms is available to facilities
in the state, although this will be a future priority.
