Definitions
The definitions in OAR 340-200-0020
and this rule apply to this division. If the same term is defined in this rule and
340-200-0020, the definition in this rule applies to this division.
(1) "Administrator" means
the Administrator of the EPA or authorized representative.
(2) "Affected facility" means,
with reference to a stationary source, any apparatus to which a standard is applicable.
(3) "Capital expenditures"
means an expenditure for a physical or operational change to an existing facility
that exceeds the product of the applicable "annual asset guideline repair allowance
percentage" specified in Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Publication 534 and the
existing facility's basis, as defined by section 1012 of the Internal Revenue Code.
However, the total expenditure for a physical or operational change to an existing
facility must not be reduced by any "excluded additions" as defined in IRS Publication
534, as would be done for tax purposes.
(4) "CFR" means Code of Federal
Regulations and, unless otherwise expressly identified, refers to the July 1, 2013
edition.
(5) "Closed municipal solid
waste landfill" (closed landfill) means a landfill in which solid waste is no longer
being placed, and in which no additional solid wastes will be placed without first
filing a notification of modification as prescribed under 40 CFR 60.7(a)(4). Once
a notification of modification has been filed, and additional solid waste is placed
in the landfill, the landfill is no longer closed. A landfill is considered closed
after meeting the criteria of 40 CFR 258.60.
(6) "Commenced", with respect
to the definition of "new source" in section 111(a)(2) of the federal Clean Air
Act, means that an owner or operator has undertaken a continuous program of construction
or modification or that an owner or operator has entered into a contractual obligation
to undertake and complete, within a reasonable time, a continuous program of construction
or modification.
(7) "Existing municipal solid
waste landfill" (existing landfill) means a municipal solid waste landfill that
began construction, reconstruction or modification before 5/30/91 and has accepted
waste at any time since 11/08/87 or has additional design capacity available for
future waste deposition.
(8) "Existing facility",
with reference to a stationary source, means any apparatus of the type for which
a standard is promulgated in 40 CFR Part 60, and the construction or modification
of which commenced before the date of proposal by EPA of that standard; or any apparatus
that could be altered in such a way as to be of that type.
(9) "Fixed capital cost"
means the capital needed to provide all the depreciable components.
(10) "Large municipal solid
waste landfill" (large landfill) means a municipal solid waste landfill with a design
capacity greater than or equal to 2.5 million megagrams or 2.5 million cubic meters.
(11) "Modification:"
(a) except as provided in
subsection (b) of this section, means any physical change in, or change in the method
of operation of, an existing facility that increases the amount of any air pollutant
(to which a standard applies) emitted into the atmosphere by that facility or that
results in the emission of any air pollutant (to which a standard applies) into
the atmosphere not previously emitted;
(b) As used in OAR 340-238-0100
means an action that results in an increase in the design capacity of a landfill.
(12) "Municipal solid waste
landfill" (landfill) means an entire disposal facility in a contiguous geographical
space where household waste is placed in or on land. A municipal solid waste landfill
may also receive other types of RCRA Subtitle D wastes such as commercial solid
waste, nonhazardous sludge, conditionally exempt small quantity generator waste,
and industrial solid waste. Portions of a municipal solid waste landfill may be
separated by access roads and may be publicly or privately owned. A municipal solid
waste landfill may be a new municipal solid waste landfill, an existing municipal
solid waste landfill, or a lateral expansion (modification).
(13) "New municipal solid
waste landfill" (new landfill) means a municipal solid waste landfill that began
construction, reconstruction or modification or began accepting waste on or after
5/30/91.
(14) "Reconstruction" means
the replacement of components of an existing facility to such an extent that:
(a) The fixed capital cost
of the new components exceeds 50 percent of the fixed capital cost that would be
required to construct a comparable entirely new facility; and
(b) It is technologically
and economically feasible to meet the applicable standards set forth in 40 CFR Part
60.
(15) "Reference method" means
any method of sampling and analyzing for an air pollutant as specified in 40 CFR
Part 60.
(16) "Small municipal solid
waste landfill" (small landfill) means a municipal solid waste landfill with a design
capacity less than 2.5 million megagrams or 2.5 million cubic meters.
(17) "Standard" means a standard
of performance proposed or promulgated under 40 CFR Part 60.
(18) "State Plan" means a
plan developed for the control of a designated pollutant provided under 40 CFR Part
60.
