Comparison: State vs. Federal
•Rules. Hawaii requires nonmajor sources to obtain noncovered source permits. A covered source permit is required for all major sources burning used or waste oil, or major sources beginning construction, reconstruction, modification, or operation of an emissions unit or air pollution control device. The basic covered source permitting requirements are explained in the state section TITLE V. However, sources satisfying the applicability criteria of Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD)-covered sources must comply with the additional PSD permitting requirements. Nonattainment NSR does not apply in Hawaii because the entire state has attained all of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).
•Administration and enforcement. The Clean Air Branch within DOH administers and enforces the state's air emissions permitting rules.
