1.Total suspended particulate matter.
No person may discharge total suspended particulate matter to the ambient air in
an amount or concentration that soils property or creates a nuisance condition. Total
suspended particulate matter concentrations of less than 150 micrograms per cubic
meter for any 24-hour period in the ambient air are presumed not to constitute soiling
or nuisance conditions. Any person who demonstrates on the basis of total suspended
particulate ambient air quality monitoring information acceptable to the commissioner
that emissions discharged by that person have not substantially caused or contributed
to total suspended particulate matter concentrations in excess of 150 micrograms per
cubic meter over a 24-hour period at any applicable location may not be held in violation
of this subsection.

Any commercial and industrial source or facility, all municipalities and all state
or federal facilities, whether or not requiring a license pursuant to this chapter,
that cause or contribute to the discharge of fugitive emissions that the commissioner
determines to constitute a nuisance are required to establish and maintain a continuing
program for best management practices for suppression of fugitive emissions during
any periods of construction, renovation or normal operation. The commissioner shall
determine those procedures which constitute best management practices. A description
of a source's program for suppression of fugitive emissions must be made available
to the commissioner upon request. Public or private roads that are not part of a
commercial and industrial source or facility are not subject to the requirements of
