AND CONFORMITY: KRS 224.10-100 requires the Environmental and Public Protection

Cabinet to prescribe administrative regulations for the prevention, abatement,

and control of air pollution. This administrative regulation provides for the

control of emissions from new oil-effluent water separators.


      Section 1.

Applicability. The provisions of this administrative regulation shall apply to

each affected facility commenced on or after the classification date defined

below which is located:

      (1) In an urban

county designated nonattainment for ozone under 401 KAR 51:010; or

      (2) In any other

county and is a part of a major source of volatile organic compounds.

      (3) Oil-effluent

water separators used exclusively in conjunction with the production of crude

oil shall be exempted from this administrative regulation.


      Section 2.

Definitions. As used in this administrative regulation all terms not defined

herein shall have the meaning given them in 401 KAR 50:010.

      (1) "Affected

facility" means any oil-effluent water separator which recovers 200

gallons a day or more of any petroleum products from any equipment which

processes, refines, stores, or handles hydrocarbons with a Reid vapor pressure

of 0.5 psia or greater.


"Oil-effluent water separator" means any tank, box, sump, or other

container in which any petroleum or product thereof, floating on or entrained

or contained in water entering such tank, box, sump, or other container, is

physically separated and removed from such water prior to outfall, drainage, or

recovery of such water.

      (3) "Floating

roof" means a vessel cover consisting of double deck, pontoon single deck,

internal floating cover or covered floating roof, which rests upon and is

supported by the liquid being contained, and is equipped with a closure seal or

seals to close the space between the roof edge and vessel wall.


"Classification date" means April 9, 1972.

      (5) "Vapor

recovery system" means a vapor gathering system capable of collecting all

hydrocarbon vapors and gases discharged from a vessel and a vapor disposal

system capable of processing such hydrocarbon vapors and gases so as to prevent

their emission to the atmosphere.


      Section 3. Standard

for Hydrocarbons. An oil-effluent water separator shall be one (1) of the

following types of vessels: a vessel equipped with a floating roof, a vessel

equipped with a vapor recovery system, or their equivalent. All gauging and
