The Denver/Metro North Front Range was designated as a “serious” nonattainment area for ozone in December 2019, which changed the threshold for “major sources” as defined in the Title V regulations from 100 tpy to 50 tpy for NOx and VOC emissions. The change in the major source threshold has resulted in many facilities becoming newly subject and required to submit an initial Title V application within 12 months of the designation. This presentation will provide an overview of the Title V program that will inform facilities both old and new to the program. We will address the development and maintenance of a compliance program supporting the monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements associated with all Title V permits. Requirements and best practices will be reviewed for the initial operating permit applications for new major sources, as well as for renewal applications and modifications. Facilities new to the program, and those considering synthetic minor permitting to avoid the program, will gain a better understanding of the risks and resources necessary to comply with a Title V permit.
