States Identify Compliance Problems
Texas TCEQ – Used portable analyzers for spot checking
If source out of compliance, reason to cite and
require immediate 3
party source testing.
Findings of program
Similar to Oklahoma experience - Found approximately 75% of
sources not meeting emission limit
At one site they tested a small V8 engine and found it to be
comparable to a title V source
News quickly spread of agencies “spot checking” ability
Approximately 90% compliance after one year.
Source companies developed new programs (i.e - engine
analyst” & “emissions analyst”.
