DEP reviews these reports (but generally not before they are posted on this Web site) and may take enforcement action when data shows emissions that exceed regulatory standards.
Please note that episodes in which emissions exceed standards do not all necessarily constitute violations. The 1998 Rule allows higher emissions for limited durations in specific circumstances: during startup or shutdown, in the event of certain malfunctions, or when there are isolated "spikes" in operating conditions.
A summary of the reports that facilities are required
to file with DEP is available here.
For more detailed facility-specific information, please contact
the appropriate DEP
Regional Service Center. Reports accessible from this Web
site contain emissions and operating data reported by the operators
of facilities subject to the DEP Municipal Waste Combustor Rule.
