Q455. Will EPA provide a template for the monitoring plans and review plans?
A455. At this time, EPA has no plans to specify a monitoring plan template because the Agency wants to provide the flexibility for reporters to rely on references to existing corporate maintenance plans, operating procedures, quality assurance plans, and other documents, including those prepared under other rules (e.g., acid rain, New Source Performance Standards). However, the monitoring plan must include all of the elements listed in 40 CFR 98.3(g)(5)(i) of the rule. EPA will not review monitoring plans unless EPA requests such a review as part of an audit.
