REASONABLY AVAILABLE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

(RACT)


Proposed Revision to the State Implementation Plan for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC); Approval of a Reasonably Available Control Technology Plan and Operating Permit; Public Hearing

Bedford County

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has made a preliminary determination to approve a revised Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) Plan and an amendment to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for a recreational equipment production facility owned and operated by Hedstrom Corporation in Bedford Township, Bedford County.

   The proposed SIP revision does not adopt any new regulations. It incorporates the provisions and requirements contained in RACT Operating Permit No. 05-02002A for the existing facility to comply with current regulations.

   The preliminary RACT determination, if approved, will be incorporated into an Operating Permit for the facility and will be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a revision to Pennsylvania's SIP.

   The sources at the recreational equipment production facility for which VOC RACT determinations are being made are the decorative coating line for rotocasting and the gym leg stencil operations. The preliminary VOC RACT determination for the decorative coating line for rotocasting is a limitation of VOCs in the coating along with an annual limit of total emissions. The preliminary VOC RACT determination for the gym leg stencil operation is utilizing improved work practice standard along with an annual limit of total emissions. Upon final approval of the company's case-by-case analysis, the operating permit will include conditions requiring recordkeeping and reporting of operational data to verify VOC emissions.

   An appointment to review the pertinent documents at the Department Altoona District Office at 615 Howard Avenue, Altoona may be scheduled by contacting Kathy Ciampoli at (814) 946-7290 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays.

Plan Approval granted under the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act (35 P. S. §§ 750.1--750.20).

   Northeast Regional Office: Water Management Program Manager, 2 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711-0790, (717) 826-2553.

   Camp Lohikan/Mount Tone, Buckingham Township, Wayne County. This commercial project proposes to correct existing malfunctioning onlot sewage disposal systems with a spray irrigation wastewater treatment facility consisting of an aerated lagoon and a 12.4 acre spray field. Peak wastewater flows will be 30,000 gpd.

   Camp Lohikan contains 30 cabins with a capacity for 600 people. The operational season runs for the months of June, July and August. Wastewater flows for this particular facility are estimated at 1.5 million gallons per year. The Mount Tone ski area, located on the same 795 acre parcel, utilizes some of the identical facilities as the campground. The estimated wastewater flows from the ski operation are 600,000 gallons per year. In the interim between the camping and skiing seasons, the property is utilized on weekends with an estimated wastewater flow of 650,000 gallons per year. The total estimated wastewater flows for this project are 2.75 million gallons per year. Daily flows range from a peak of 30,000 gpd during the summer camping season to 400 gpd in the off-season.

   This parcel is located along both sides of T-601, approximately 1.5 miles southeast of the intersection with S. R. 4033 in Buckingham Township, Wayne County, PA.

   Regional Office: Water Management Program Manager, Southcentral Region, 909 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

   Heidelberg Township, Lebanon County, Mill Road, Box 188, Schaefferstown, PA 17088. The disapproved plan proposed construction of a collection system and sewage treatment plant that would discharge to Hammer Creek, a stream classified as High Quality. The plan was disapproved because the cost of a non-discharge alternative, spray irrigation, was found to be within 110% of the cost of the proposed discharge alternative. As per guidance in effect at the time this plan was initiated, the non-discharge alternative should have been selected under these conditions.

   Felton Borough, York County, 49 Main Street, Felton, PA 17322. The approved plan provided for construction of a gravity collection system and .042 mgd sewage treatment plant to provide public sewer service to Felton Borough. Funding is anticipated to be through the USDA Rural Utility Service. Additionally, preliminary hydrogeologic studies will be required for all new land development not connecting to the sewer system. The Department's review of the sewage facilities update revision has not identified any significant environmental impacts resulting from this proposal. Any required NPDES Permits or WQM Permits must be obtained in the name of the municipality or authority as appropriate.

HAZARDOUS SITES CLEAN-UP

Under the Act of October 18, 1988


Prompt Interim Response under the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act

Furlong Manufacturing Company (FMC) Site
Doylestown and Buckingham Townships, Bucks County

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), under the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (35 P. S. §§ 6020.101--6020.1304) (HSCA), initiated a Prompt Interim Response at the former FMC facility and the area immediately surrounding the facility. The FMC property is currently occupied by a retail lighting store known as Furlong Lamp and Lighting. The facility is located at 760 York Road (Route 263), Furlong, Doylestown Township, Bucks County.

   As a result of previous investigations, which had shown significant, but localized, contamination of private water supply wells near FMC, as well as soil contamination on the FMC property, the Department's Hazardous Sites Cleanup Program, in April of 1997, began an investigation of the ground water in the area, in order to obtain relevant and current information on the status of the site. Several wells in the area surrounding the FMC property were sampled during this investigation, the results of which showed the continued localized presence of the plume mentioned above. The main contaminant of concern in the ground water is the common degreasing compound known as trichloroethylene (TCE).

   This Prompt Interim Response Action consists of the installation and subsequent operation and maintenance of whole-house carbon filters on five impacted private residential and business water supply wells. The wells will be monitored regularly, along with two other nearby private wells. The Department chose to conduct a prompt interim response because conditions relative to the impacted water supply wells created a reasonable basis to believe that prompt action was required to protect public health and safety under 25 Pa. Code § 3.21(b).

   The Department determined that the prompt interim response chosen, under the authority of sections 501(a) and 505(b) of HSCA, was the alternative most protective of human health and the most cost effective. The Department considered two other alternatives. The first, no action, was considered and rejected because it would not address the threat to public health associated with the site. The second, extension of the existing public water line, was rejected, because the very localized nature of the contaminant plume and relatively small number of impacted wells, when taken in relation to the cost of extending the public water line over 2 miles, rendered this alternative as not cost effective at this time.

   The administrative record (AR), which contains the information that forms the basis for and documents the selection of this response action, is available for public review and comment from 8:15 a.m. through 12 noon and from 1:15 p.m. through 4:15 p.m. at the Department offices located at 555 North Lane, Conshohocken, PA 19428.

Plan Approval and Operating Permit Applications

Nonmajor Sources and Modifications

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has developed an ''integrated'' plan approval, State operating permit and Title V operating permit program. This integrated approach is designed to make the permitting process more efficient for the Department, the regulated community and the public. This approach allows the owner or operator of a facility to complete and submit all the permitting documents relevant to its application one time, affords an opportunity for public input and provides for sequential issuance of the necessary permits.

   Notice is hereby given that the Department has received applications for plan approvals and/or operating permits from the following facilities. Although the sources covered by these applications may be located at a major facility, the sources being installed or modified do not trigger major new source review or prevention of significant deterioration requirements.

   Copies of these applications, subsequently prepared draft permits, review summaries and other support materials are available for review in the Regional Offices identified in this notice. Persons interested in reviewing the application files should contact the appropriate regional office to schedule an appointment.

   Persons wishing to file protests or comments on the proposed plan approval and/or operating permits must submit the protest or comment within 30 days from the date of this notice. Interested persons may also request that a hearing be held concerning the proposed plan approval and operating permit. Any comments or protests filed with the Department's Regional Offices must include a concise statement of the objections to the issuance of the plan approval or operating permit and relevant facts which serve as the basis for the objections. If the Department schedules a hearing, a notice will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin at least 30 days prior to the date of the hearing.

   Final plan approvals and operating permits will contain terms and conditions to ensure that the source is constructed and operating in compliance with applicable requirements in 25 Pa. Code Chapters 121--143, the Federal Clean Air Act and regulations adopted under the act.
