Source Test

10/16/2014

The Source Test program provides the Bay Area Air Quality Management District with the expertise and equipment to determine the type and quantity of pollutants emitted from sources by sampling the effluent stream. Quantification of pollutant emissions allows the Air District to determine if a source is in compliance with environmental regulations and to issue a Notice of Violation, if necessary.

The primary functions of the Source Test program are to:

  1. Conduct analytical source tests.
  2. Conduct performance audits on Continuous Emissions Monitoring (CEM) and Predictive Emissions Monitoring (PEM) systems.
  3. Review and determine acceptability of third-party source tests.
  4. Research and develop new analytical source test procedures.
  5. Produce source test data based engineering studies in order to:
    • Determine compliance status for specific source categories.
    • Determine whether to issue Permits to Operate.
    • Update the emissions inventory.
    • Determine actual abatement control effectiveness.
    • Provide data and technical assistance for District studies.
    • Develop applicable standards for new or revised regulations.
