UNDER ACT 2, 1995
PREAMBLE 1


Acknowledgment of Notices of Intent to Remediate Submitted under the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (35 P.S. §§ 6026.101—6026.907).

 Sections 302—305 of the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (act) (35 P.S. §§ 6026.302—6026.305) require the Department to publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin an acknowledgment noting receipt of Notices of Intent to Remediate. An acknowledgment of the receipt of a Notice of Intent to Remediate is used to identify a site where a person proposes to, or has been required to, respond to a release of a regulated substance at a site. A person intending to use the background standard, Statewide health standard, the site-specific standard or intend to remediate a site as a special industrial area shall file a Notice of Intent to Remediate with the Department. A Notice of Intent to Remediate filed with the Department provides a brief description of the location of the site, a list of known or suspected contaminants at the site, the proposed remediation measures for the site and a description of the intended future use of the site. A person who demonstrates attainment of one or a combination of cleanup standards or receives approval of a special industrial area remediation identified under the act will be relieved of further liability for the remediation of the site for contamination identified in reports submitted to and approved by the Department. Furthermore, the person shall not be subject to citizen suits or other contribution actions brought by responsible persons not participating in the remediation.

 Under sections 304(n)(1)(ii) and 305(c)(2) of the act, there is a 30-day public and municipal comment period for sites proposed for remediation using a site-specific standard, in whole or in part, and for sites remediated as a special industrial area. This period begins when a summary of the Notice of Intent to Remediate is published in a newspaper of general circulation in the area of the site. For the following site, proposed for remediation to a site-specific standard or as a special industrial area, the municipality, within which the site is located, may request to be involved in the development of the remediation and reuse plans for the site if the request is made within 30 days of the date specified as follows. During this comment period, the municipality may request that the person identified as the remediator of the site develop and implement a public involvement plan. Requests to be involved and comments should be directed to the remediator of the site.

 For further information concerning the content of a Notice of Intent to Remediate, contact the environmental cleanup program manager in the Department regional office listed before the notice. If information concerning this acknowledgment is required in an alternative form, contact the community relations coordinator at the appropriate regional office. TDD users may telephone the Department through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

Central Office: Division of Municipal and Residual Waste, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 14th Floor, 400 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101.

General Permit Application No. WMGR052SW001. Champion Processing Inc., P.O Box 1073, Coraopolis, PA 15108. The site is located at 1150A Beach Hollow Road, Bulger, PA 15019 in Washington County, Robinson Township. General Permit No. WMGR052 was issued on March 6, 2016 and amended on November 21, 2018. General Permit Application No. WMGR052SW001 is for a determination of applicability under General Permit No. WMGR052, and if approved, would authorize Champion Processing to process material which complies with the permit requirements for chemical and physical properties and beneficially use the processed material at the Champion Processing site.

 General Permit No. WMGR052 authorizes the processing, by mixing, of approved materials to produce stabilized flue gas desulfurization material (stabilized FGD material) for beneficial use of stabilized FGD material for mine reclamation activities at coal activity mine sites or abandoned mine lands, provided the reclamation is occurring in accordance with a mining permit or reclamation contract executed with the Department.

 In addition to obtaining authorization under General Permit No. WMGR052, persons intending to beneficially use stabilized FGD material for mine reclamation activities must first obtain a mining permit or revision to a mining permit or execute a reclamation contract with the Department for the use of the stabilized FGD material in the reclamation of the site. The suitability of the stabilized FGD material for beneficial use, including a review of the existing groundwater and surface water quality and flow, along with an evaluation of the separation between the area where stabilized FGD material will be placed and the seasonal high groundwater to prevent contact between the stabilized FGD material and groundwater or saturated soil, will be evaluated at each site where it is proposed to be beneficially used as part of the reclamation activities.

 Use of the stabilized FGD material on a coal activity mine site must also comply with existing mining regulations, including a demonstration that use or placement of the stabilized FGD material will not cause pollution or potential pollution of surface water and groundwater or result in a violation of air quality standards for fugitive dust.

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) published notice of Champion Processing's application for authorization under General Permit No. WMGR052, Application No. WMGR052SW001, in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on December 8, 2018, and held a 60-day public comment period.
