MDWTP proposes to increase hazardous waste storage and treatment capacities; conduct treatment outside of the treatment tanks; add the treatment of (D003) reactive sulfide containing waste; add management of hazardous waste containing dioxins; enlarge the boundary of the outdoor Southeast Container Storage Area (SECSA); store trailers holding drums, not immediately off-loaded upon receipt, in the SECSA; and install an additional groundwater monitoring well in the SECSA. Ms. Sylwia Scott is the contact person for MDWTP and can be reached by telephone at 734 699 6294 or email@example.com.
The MDEQ is reviewing the Application. During our review, we will determine if the proposed activities comply with all state and federal hazardous waste facility licensing requirements; evaluate and consider potential impacts that the proposed expansion could have on the local community; and provide the public opportunities to offer input on the proposed expansion. The MDEQ invites public comment on the Application. Written comments may be provided to Ms. Tyson at the address below throughout the review process. The MDEQ has not scheduled a public hearing, after receipt of the application. However, interested persons may submit a written request for a public hearing to Ms. Tyson by January 12, 2018.
Prior to making a final determination to issue or deny a hazardous waste management facility operating license, the MDEQ will hold a public hearing regarding its tentative decision.
