(a) The department may require an owner, operator, or permittee to conduct air pollutant emission tests to determine compliance with AS 46.14 and this chapter. If an applicable emission standard, permit provision, or other requirement specifies a time period within which testing must be completed, the owner, operator, or permittee shall conduct the testing within the specified period regardless of whether the department explicitly calls for testing under this subsection.

(b) Unless otherwise specified by an applicable requirement or test method, an air pollutant emission test must be performed

(c) Reference test methods to be used by the owner, operator, or permittee for an applicable requirement of AS 46.14 or this chapter are as follows: (d) In deciding whether to require a test under (a) of this section, the department will consider (e) The owner, operator, or permittee shall submit the results of testing conducted under this section as required by Vol. 3., sec. IV-3, Appendix IV-3, of the state air quality control plan, adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.030. (f) In source testing for compliance with the particulate matter standards in 18 AAC 50.050 or 18 AAC 50.055, the three-hour average is determined using the average of three one-hour test runs. The source test must account for those emissions caused by soot blowing, grate cleaning, or other routine maintenance activities by ensuring that at least one test run includes the emissions caused by the routine maintenance activity and is conducted under conditions that lead to representative emissions from that activity. The emissions must be quantified using the following equation:
