Reviewing New Source Review (NSR) and Title V Permits (a Level 3 course)

Back to Air Quality training

Course Description:
This new course is a sequel to the Tribal New Source Review course that ITEP offered in 2011 and 2012. As such, it is an advanced course that will focus on permit review (rather than program implementation). The first day will provide an overview of NSR and Title V and how they fit together, with some emphasis on Tribal Minor NSR. The remaining three days will go into depth on PSD, Nonattainment NSR, and Title V. There will be presentations with visual aids, as well as tribal case studies, discussions, and a variety of exercises.

Topics include:
  • Permit Issuance Process

  • Tribal NSR Rule

  • PSD Applicability

  • BACT

  • Air Quality Impacts Analysis

  • Nonattainment NSR Applicability

  • LAER

  • Offsets

  • Monitoring, Recordkeeping, and Reporting (MRR)
