Occasionally, the State Air Pollution Control Board, either on its own or at the behest of the General Assembly, will promulgate a regulation that applies only in Virginia and is not part of any federal plan.
The following programs are authorized under state law only:
- Air toxics - For existing sources, see Article 4 of 9VAC5 Chapter 60. For new sources, see Article 5 of 9VAC5 Chapter 60.
- Odor - For existing sources, see Article 2 of 9VAC5 Chapter 40. For new sources see Article 2 of 9VAC5 Chapter 50.
- Medical Waste Incinerators - For new sources, see Article 6 of 9VAC5 Chapter 50.
- Mediation and alternative dispute resolution - See 9VAC5 Chapter 210.
In addition, the board adopts variances and general permits to address specific situations on a case by case basis.
