There are various ways in which a permit may limit the emissions from an operation. Although some limits may appear similar, they are calculated much differently. The following examples explain the differences between permit limits based on calendar years, rolling totals, and rolling averages.The chart below provides an example of a painting operation, which began in March 1998. This operation has a permit that provides limitations on the amount of paint it can use. The monthly paint usage for 1998, 1999, and 2000 are indicated in the left column.
