SRCAA REGULATION I, ARTICLE X, SECTION 10.06

REGISTRATION AND OPERATING PERMIT FEES FOR AIR CONTAMINANT SOURCES


Registration Fees

B. The annual fee for each source required by Article IV, Section 4.01 to be registered and that is not subject to Section 10.06.C. of this Regulation shall be determined by adding all of the applicable fees, below: ((in the current fee schedule.))


1.
Registration Fee Categories Fee Fee Applicability
Facility Fee A Per the Fee Schedule Per Source
Emissions Fee B Per the Fee Schedule Per Ton
Emission Point Fee C Per the Fee Schedule Per Stack/Point
Burn Out Oven/Incinerator Fee D Per the Fee Schedule Per Source
Synthetic Minor Fee E Per the Fee Schedule Per Source
WEDS Fee F Per the Fee Schedule Per Hour

a Each source is subject to the fee listed.

b The additional fee listed applies to each ton (rounded to the nearest one-tenth of a ton) of each criteria and toxic air pollutant emitted.

c The additional fee applies to each stack and other emission points. For gasoline stations, each gasoline tank vent is an emission point.

d The additional fee listed applies to each source which operated at least one incinerator or burn out oven during the registration period.

e The additional fee listed applies to each Synthetic Minor source as defined in SCAPCA Regulation I, Article I, Section 1.04.

f The additional fee listed applies to each source required by the Authority to submit an annual emissions inventory for entry into the Washington Emission Data System (WEDS). SCAPCA staff time spent processing and reviewing WEDS will be tracked in 15 minute increments and charged at the hourly rates provided above.

((1)) 2. The Board shall periodically review the fee schedule for registered sources and determine if the total projected fee revenue to be collected pursuant to this Section is sufficient to fully recover program costs. Any proposed fee revisions shall include opportunity for public review and comment. Accordingly, the Agency shall account for program costs, including employee costs and overhead. If the Board determines that the total projected fee revenue is either significantly excessive or deficient for this purpose, then the Board shall amend the fee schedule to more accurately recover program costs.
