Title V

The University of Georgia has one “Operating Permit” for the Central Steam Plant and three Pathological  Incinerators, which is a legally enforceable document that permitting authorities issue to air pollution sources. Title V operating permit that most large sources and some smaller sources of air pollution are required to obtain and the requirements comes from Title V of the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990. Most title V permits are issued by State and local permitting authorities. In Georgia, the Environmental Protection Division, Air Protection Branch is the permitting and enforcement authority. These permits are often called part 70 permits because the regulations establish minimum standards for State permit programs, which are found in the Code of Federal Regulations under 40 CFR part 70.
