65-3010. Emission control requirements. (a) The secretary shall establish emission control requirements, and requirements for open burning (including appropriate prohibition thereof). Such requirements may be either for such areas as a whole or may vary from area to area, as may be appropriate to facilitate accomplishment of the purposes of this act and in order to take necessary or desirable account of varying local conditions. Any emission which does not conform to a requirement in force pursuant to this subsection shall constitute a violation of this act.

(b) Every local air quality conservation program that is established pursuant to K.S.A. 65-3016, as amended, shall be in compliance with the rules and regulations set forth for that area by the secretary.

(c) Variations from the requirements of subsection (b) of this section may be included in a local air quality conservation program only after approval by the secretary, following demonstration to the satisfaction of the secretary that the proposed requirements are not less stringent than the standards and requirements established by the secretary and are otherwise consistent with the purposes of this act. Any requirement placed in force pursuant to this subsection shall be preceded by public hearing. The secretary, upon evidence that conditions have changed or that additional or other information is relevant to a decision with respect to the emission control or open burning requirements concerned may, after public hearing, withdraw any approval previously given to a local requirement pursuant to this subsection.

(d) The secretary shall establish reasonable ambient air quality standards for the state as a whole, or any part thereof, and shall require the emission control requirements of any local program to be consistent with such standards in addition to meeting any other requirements pursuant to this section.
