AIR QUALITY

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.

   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.

REASONABLY AVAILABLE CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

(RACT)

Proposed Revision to the State Implementation Plan for Oxides of Nitrogen and Volatile Organic Compounds and Public Hearing

   Approval of an amendment of a Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) plan for Pennsylvania Electric Company/GPU Generation, Inc. in Bradford Township, Clearfield County.

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has made a preliminary determination to approve an amendment of a Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) plan and an amendment to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for an electric generating facility (Shawville Generating Station) owned by Pennsylvania Electric Company and operated by GPU Generation, Inc. in Bradford Township, Clearfield County.

   The proposed SIP revision does not adopt new regulations. It incorporates the provisions and requirements contained in the amendment of the RACT approval for the facility to comply with current regulations.

   The preliminary RACT amendment, if finally approved, will result in the revision of Plan Approval PA-17-0001 issued on December 27, 1994, and reissued on October 6, 1998, and will be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a revision to Pennsylvania's State Implementation Plan.

   The proposed amendment consists of revising the allowable nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission limit for pulverized bituminous coal-fired Unit 1 from .50 pounds per million BTU of heat input (30 day rolling average) to .524 pounds per million BTU of heat input (30 day rolling average) and the allowable nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission limit for pulverized bituminous coal-fired Unit 2 from .50 pounds per million BTU of heat input (30 day rolling average) to .542 pounds per million BTU of heat input (30 day rolling average). This revision is authorized under 25 Pa. Code § 129.91(j).

   One public hearing will be held for the purpose of receiving comments on the proposed plan approval revision and the proposed SIP revision. The hearing will be held on January 6, 1999, at 1 p.m. at the DEP Northcentral Regional Office, 208 West Third Street, Suite 101, Williamsport, PA. The public is invited to comment on the proposal. Persons interested in commenting are invited to appear at the public hearing.

   Persons wishing to present testimony at the hearing should contact Daniel Spadoni at (717) 327-3659 at least 1 week in advance of the hearing to reserve a time to present testimony.

LAND RECYCLING AND ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION

Under Act 2, 1995

Preamble 4


The Department has taken action on the following plans and reports under the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (35 P. S. §§ 6026.101--6026.908) and Chapter 250 Administration of Land Recycling Program.

   Provisions of Chapter 250.8 Administration of Land Recycling Program requires the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) to publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin a notice of its final actions on plans and reports. A final report is submitted to document cleanup of a release of a regulated substance at a site to one of the Act 2 (Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act) remediation standards. Plans and reports required by provisions of Act 2 for compliance with selection of remediation to a site-specific standard, in addition to a final report, include a remedial investigation report, risk assessment report and cleanup plan. A remedial investigation report includes conclusions from the site investigation, concentration of regulated substances in environmental media, benefits of reuse of the property, and in some circumstances, a fate and transport analysis. If required, a risk assessment report describes potential adverse effects caused by the presence of regulated substances. A cleanup plan evaluates the abilities of potential remedies to achieve remedy requirements. A final report provides a description of the site investigation to characterize the nature and extent of contaminants in environmental media, the basis for selecting the environmental media of concern, documentation supporting the selection of residential or nonresidential exposure factors, a description of the remediation performed and summaries of sampling methodology and analytical results which demonstrate that the remediation has attained the cleanup standard selected. The Department may approve or disapprove plans and reports submitted. This notice provides the Department's decision and, if relevant, the basis for disapproval.

   For further information concerning the plans and reports, contact the Environmental Cleanup Program in the Department's Regional Office under which the notice of the plan or report appears. If information concerning a final report is required in an alternative form, contact the community relations coordinator at the appropriate Regional Office listed. TDD users may telephone the Department through the AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

SPECIAL NOTICES

Notice of Settlement Under the
Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act
Gettysburg Foundry Site
Cumberland Township, Adams County

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), under the authority of the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (HSCA) (35 P. S. §§ 6020.101--6020.1305), has entered into a proposed consent order and agreement (COA) with C. M. Metals, Inc. regarding the remediation of the Gettysburg Foundry Site (Site). The Site is located at 2664 Emmitsburg Road, Gettysburg, PA 17325 in Cumberland Township, Adams County, PA. The 21-acre site is located in a rural area about 4 miles south of the town of Gettysburg.

   From 1957 until 1997, Gettysburg Foundry Specialties Company (GFSC) manufactured aluminum castings and was classified as a secondary aluminum smelting plant. Among other things, GFSC recycled aluminum to produce aluminum ingots. During the process of melting aluminum recyclable materials in the furnace at the facility, combined pieces of dirt, steel and aluminum rose to the surface of the melted material. This ''dross'' was skimmed off and sent to another part of the plant for handling. At that time, magnets removed the steel and the rest of the material was screened to remove the dirt and dust from the aluminum. The aluminum was sent back to the furnace and the dirt and dust (referred to as aluminum dross fine waste) was set aside for disposal. In addition to the aluminum dross fine waste, GFSC's air pollution control system generated baghouse dust. Much of the waste was stored on the site in two onsite pits and in buildings. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February 1996. The plant ceased operations on March 13, 1997.

   Because of the threat to human health and the environment posed by the GFSC site, the Department undertook two Prompt Interim Responses at the site. The first was conducted in August 1997. Under this response, the site was secured by repairing an existing fence around the facility and piles of dross waste, which were exposed to the elements, were moved into the Foundry Building. The second response, begun in May 1998, provided for the removal of 676 drums of waste and the aboveground waste stored at the site. The Department has removed the drummed waste.

   On November 4, 1998, the Department and C. M. Metals entered into the proposed consent order and agreement. Under the terms of the COA, C. M. Metals will implement the remaining portions of the second prompt interim response Statement of Decision (SOD), including the removal of the remaining aboveground waste, will implement the final remedial SOD as it relates to waste in the pits and contaminated soil and groundwater, and will reimburse the Department $25,000 for its response costs at the GFSC site.

   This notice is provided under section 1113 of HSCA (35 P. S. § 6020.1113). This section provides that the settlement will become final upon the filing of the Department's response to any significant written comments. The proposed consent order and agreement that contains the specific terms of the settlement is available for public review and comment. The proposed consent order and agreement can be examined from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Department's office at 909 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA 17110, by contacting Barbara Faletti at (717) 705-4864. A public comment period on the proposed consent order and agreement will extend for 60 days from today's date. Persons may submit written comments regarding the proposed consent order and agreement to the Department by January 20, 1999, by submitting them to Barbara Faletti at the above address.

[Pa.B. Doc. No. 98-1910. Filed for public inspection November 20, 1998, 9:00 a.m.]
