1. The permittee has violated any regulation or order of the board, any condition of a VPA permit, any provision of the law, or any order of a court, where such violation results in a release of harmful substances into the environment or poses a substantial threat of release of harmful substances into the environment or presents a hazard to human health or the violation is representative of a pattern of serious or repeated violations which, in the opinion of the board, demonstrates the permittee's disregard for or inability to comply with applicable laws, regulations or requirements;
