March 28, 1986 Construction Activities Prior to Issuance of a PSD Permit with Respect to "Begin Actual Construction" 14.8
The term "emissions unit" as defined at Section 52.21(a)(7) is clarified. Before issuance of the PSD permit, construction is prohibited on any emissions unit or on any installation designed to accommodate the emissions unit. Activities discussed in the December 18, 1978, memo as allowed prior to issuance of a PSD permit are undertaken at the risk of the owner or operator. Reaffirms December 1978 policy on preconstruction activities as still current.
