Preparing for an air administrative amendment other e-Service submittal

To help make your e-Service submittal go as smoothly as possible, below are some things you'll need to have ready before you begin.

New source review determination

You will need to know if your project includes modifying, debottlenecking, replacing, or adding sources of emissions. You will also need to know if you are one of the 28 listed source categories on form CH-04. You will need to choose each category that applies to your facility.

Major source

You will only be directed to this screen if you said Yes to a question on the New Source Review Determination screen in terms of either modifying/debottlenecking/replacing or adding an emissions source and if you are currently permitted as an existing major source under New Source Review. This screen asks for the information requested on the CH-04a form.

Minor source

You will only be directed to this screen if you said Yes to a question on the New Source Review Determination screen in terms of either modifying/debottlenecking/replacing or adding an emissions source and if you are currently permitted as an existing minor source under New Source Review. This screen asks for the information requested on the CH-04b form.

Emission units

You will need to review and possibly edit the emission unit details for each existing emission unit you said you were modifying/replacing/debottlenecking on the earlier Major or Minor Source screens. You will also need to enter information about any new emissions units that are included in your amendment. Some fields are new in Tempo, specifically: engine use and displacement, CSAPR, and electric generating capacity. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-05B-R form.

Storage tanks

You will need to review and possibly edit the storage tank details for each existing storage tank you said you were modifying/replacing/debottlenecking on the earlier Major or Minor Source screens. You will also need to enter information about any new storage tanks that are included in your amendment. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-05C-R paper form.

Fugitive sources

You will need to review and possibly edit the fugitive source details for each existing fugitive source you said you were modifying/replacing/debottlenecking on the earlier Major or Minor Source screens. You will also need to enter information about any new fugitive sources that are included in your amendment. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-05D-R paper form.

Major amendment determination

This screen asks for the information requested on the CH-03 paper form.

Action type determination

This screen asks for the information requested on the CH-08 paper form.

Insignificant activities

You will only advance to this screen if earlier in the service you said that you need to make changes to your insignificant activities as part of your amendment. You will need to know if your facility has any insignificant activities as described by Minn. R. 7007.1300, subp. 3 or 4 or by Minn. 7008.4100 or 7008.4110. You will need to list them in the grid provided on the screen.

Control equipment

You will need to review and possibly edit the details for each control equipment at your facility. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-05A-R paper form as well as certain items from the CD-05 paper form. The information on this screen from the CD-05 form includes CAM applicability fields, control efficiency basis, and operating parameters.

Based on your information entered on this screen you may need to upload hood documentation.

Control equipment associations

You will need to review and possibly edit the relationships between control equipment and other subject items at your facility. This is the screen where you can indicate if controls are operated in series or parallel as well as what percent of the emissions are routed to each controlled stream. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-05F paper form for control equipment.

Stacks and vents

You will need to review and possibly update the stack parameters for each stack/vent at your facility. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-04-R paper form.

Stacks and vents associations

You will need to review and possibly edit the relationships between stacks and vents and other subject items at your facility. This is the screen where you can indicate if an emission source is vented to more than one stack and what percent of the flow is routed to each stack/vent. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-05F paper form for stacks and vents.

Monitor information

You will need to review and possibly edit the details for each monitor at your facility. This includes continuous emissions and opacity monitors, continuous parametric monitors, and data acquisition systems. This screen asks for the information requested on the ME-01-R paper form.

Monitor associations

You will need to review and possibly edit the relationships between monitors, data acquisition systems, and other subject items at your facility. Each monitor must be associated with a data acquisition system and a monitored subject item (e.g., emissions source, control device, etc.). This screen asks for the information requested on the ME-02 paper form.

Potential to emit

You will need to review and possibly edit the potential to emit data for emission sources at your facility that are included in your amendment application. This screen asks for the information requested on the GI-07-R paper form and GI-07-R spreadsheet. You must enter the data on this screen; you cannot just upload the GI-07-R spreadsheet.
