7. Because of notice given by the Director on or after February 1, 2020 under subsection 7 (1), there is only one approved dispersion model that may be used by the person with respect to the contaminant and the specified averaging period, that approved dispersion model is not referred to in paragraphs 1 to 5 of subsection 6 (1), the person discharges or causes or permits the discharge of the contaminant from a facility and, according to that approved dispersion model, discharges of the contaminant from the facility would result in the concentration of the contaminant at a point of impingement exceeding the standard set out in Schedule 3 for the contaminant and the specified averaging period.

1. Pursuant to subsection 34 (1.1),

i. the person did not hold a public meeting on the request, or

ii. the person held a public meeting on the request but did not comply with subsections 34 (2) to (4).

2. Any of the following criteria are met:

i. The Director is of the opinion that implementation of the plan submitted with the request under paragraph 7 of subsection 33 (1) or paragraph 4 of subsection 33 (4) would require significant changes to the method or combination of methods that was implemented under the corresponding plan that was submitted when the request was made for the site-specific standard previously set by the Director.
