Regulations are current to 2016-05-12

Calculation of Authorized Deposits

  •  (1) For the purpose of paragraph 5(1)(a), the arithmetic mean of the authorized deposits for a refinery for a month shall be calculated using the amounts obtained in the calculations made under subsection (2).

  • (2) The authorized deposit for a refinery of a deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) shall, subject to section 9, be calculated for each day by multiplying the amount in Column II of an item of Schedule I for the deleterious substance set out in Column I of that item by the reference crude rate of the refinery for that month.

  •  (1) For the purpose of paragraph 5(1)(b), the authorized deposit for a refinery of a deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) shall, subject to section 9, be calculated by multiplying the amount set out in Column III of an item of Schedule I for the deleterious substance set out in Column I of that item by the reference crude rate of the refinery for that month.

  • (2) For the purpose of paragraph 5(1)(c), the authorized deposit for a refinery of a deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) shall, subject to section 9, be calculated by multiplying the amount set out in Column IV of an item of Schedule I for the deleterious substance set out in Column I of that item by the reference crude rate of the refinery for that month.

  •  (1) When storm water is deposited by a refinery in any day, the authorized deposit for the refinery of a deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b) or (e), calculated in accordance with sections 7 and 8, may be increased for that day by the amount set out in Column II of an item of Schedule II for the deleterious substance set out in Column I of that item for each 10,000 Canadian gallons of storm water that is deposited.

  • (2) The limit of the deposit authorized in pounds per month of a deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b) or (e) contained in storm water being deposited by a refinery in any month shall be calculated by multiplying the amount set out in Column III of an item of Schedule II for the deleterious substance set out in Column I of that item by the reference crude rate of the refinery for that month.

Calculation of Actual Deposits

 For the purposes of subsection 5(1), when the owner of a refinery deposits a deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e), he shall, within 30 days after the end of the month in which the deposit is made, determine for that month the actual deposit of each substance deposited by the refinery by making the measurements and calculations in accordance with Schedule IV.

 The owner of a refinery that deposits the deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(f) shall, every day in the month during which the deposit is made or when requested by the Minister, monitor the deposit for the purpose of subsection 5(2) by performing the test referred to in Schedule III.

Reporting

  •  (1) The owner of a refinery that has deposited a deleterious substance prescribed in section 4 in any month shall sign, date and forward to the Minister within 30 days after the end of that month or when requested by the Minister, a report, in such form as the Minister may prescribe, indicating

    • (a) the arithmetic mean of the authorized deposits of that substance in that month for the refinery as calculated in accordance with section 7 and, where applicable, section 9;

    • (b) the authorized deposits of that substance in each day of that month for the refinery as calculated in accordance with sections 7 and 8 and, where applicable, section 9;

    • (c) the actual deposits of the deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) deposited in each day of that month by the refinery as calculated in accordance with Schedule IV;

    • (d) the arithmetic mean of the actual deposits of the deleterious substance prescribed in paragraph 4(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) deposited in that month by the refinery as calculated in accordance with Schedule IV;

    • (e) the pH of composite samples measured in accordance with Schedule III;

    • (f) the reference crude rate of the refinery in that month; and

    • (g) such other information as may be requested by the Minister to enable him to determine whether the refinery is operating in compliance with the requirements of these Regulations.

 The owner of a refinery that deposits a deleterious substance prescribed in section 4 shall install and maintain facilities including sampling connections and flow-measuring devices that are acceptable to the Minister to enable the Minister to determine whether the refinery is operating in compliance with the requirements of these Regulations.
