(1) An application must include a list of any reports, documents, studies, or calculations that indicate that the preliminary design specifications and performance objectives for the major components or process areas of the facility are adequate and can be maintained in the continuous operation of the facility. Design peak operating volume or rate must be described, including the length of time the various levels of peak operation can be sustained.

(2) An application must identify design features that were selected to reduce adverse environmental impacts.

(3) An application must describe any design features that are oversized to accommodate future increases in plant capacity.

(4) The engineering description required by (1) of this rule must include the following major facility components or process areas as applicable: boilers, reactors, generators, condensers, shift conversion facilities, cooling facilities, emission control devices, stacks, and catalyst production and regeneration facilities.

(5) An application must contain a description of associated facilities, including:

(a) a description of any major existing or new transportation system or terminal that would be used during the construction, operation, maintenance or decommissioning of the proposed facility and an estimate of the type, duration, and intensity of that use;

(b) a description meeting the requirements of ARM 17.20.1509 and 17.20.1510, for facilities of 230 kV and larger; for power lines smaller than 230 kV, a general description of the components listed in ARM 17.20.1509 is sufficient;

(c) communication installations;

(d) the proposed source of the fuel to be used by the facility and, if applicable, alternative fuel sources consistent with department Circular MFSA-1, Section 3.11, and a description of equipment and portions of the site that will be used to store, prepare and transfer the fuel to the point of consumption;

(e) all sources of water to be used by the facility, structures that would pump, convey, store, or treat the water, proposed drainage or flood control structures, and a description of the processes used to deliver water to and discharge water from the site, including operation and monitoring plans for water-supply reservoirs, ponds, and other diversions for municipal or industrial use;

(f) all waste-handling systems, both on and off-site, including a description of the collection, storage, treatment, disposal processes and monitoring procedures and plans for each system, consistent with the requirements of ARM 17.20.1504(5) (Operation and Maintenance Analysis) ;

(g) any other permanent structures or installations, and temporary structures or installations, both on- and off-site,   that would be used only during the construction phase; and

(h) for water and fuel pipelines, a description meeting the requirements of ARM 17.20.1509 and 17.20.1511.

(6) An application must contain a topographic map at a scale of 1:4800 showing the proposed location of all facility structures and nonlinear associated facilities at or associated with the proposed site.
