Air quality guidance for Colorado gas stations identifies expectations, penalties
A Guide to Air Regulations for Gasoline Dispensing Stations & Gasoline Transport Trucks in Colorado describes how GDFs located in Colorado’s 8-hour ozone nonattainment area must file an Air Pollutant Emission Notice (APEN) if uncontrolled actual volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions equal or exceed 1 ton per year. These stations must file an APEN and obtain an air permit if uncontrolled actual VOC emissions equal or exceed 2 tons per year. A GDF would require an APEN if it dispenses 145,000 gallons or more of gasoline annually, though stations in an ozone attainment area are exempt from obtaining an air permit.
