Hazardous Waste Permit Number ORQ 000 009 431

The purpose of this notice is to extend the comment period to accommodate holding a public hearing regarding the secondary waste best available technology (BAT) determination. The Department invites you to provide written or oral comments on this proposed determination.

DEQ's Role:

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is responsible for protecting and enhancing Oregon's water and air quality, for cleaning up spills and releases of hazardous materials, and for managing the proper disposal of hazardous and solid wastes. One way the DEQ does this is by requiring permits for certain activities. The DEQ has issued a HW Permit to the UMCDF to regulate the type and amount of wastes that may be stored and treated. All proposed revisions to the HW Permit are submitted by the UMCDF to the Department for review and decision/acceptance via the permit modification process.

Notice issued: February 12, 2008

Written comments due:

5 p.m. March 14, 2008

Hearing date: March 13, 2008

Time: 6:00 p.m.

Location: UMCDF Outreach Office

190 E. Main Street

Hermiston, OR 97838

DEQ staff will be available to answer questions about this specific topic.

Where can I send my comments?

The DEQ will accept written or oral comments at the meeting above or comments by mail, fax, or e-mail (see below):

(Please include "Public Comment" in the subject line. E-mail comments will be acknowledged as soon as possible. The DEQ is not responsible for delays between servers that result in missed comment deadlines.)

How do I get more information and review pertinent documents?

You can also call, write, or e-mail the Hermiston DEQ office and request information be sent to you. Interested parties are invited and encouraged to provide comments on this proposed change to the UMCDF HW Permit.

What is proposed?

The DEQ recommends the Environmental Quality Commission (EQC) determine that current technologies available at the Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility are the best available technology for secondary waste treatment and is inviting public comment on the proposed recommendation. During the comment period the public is invited to make comments related to specific conditions within the recommendation.

An initial public-comment period on this recommendation was held open from August 7, 2007, to August 14, 2007. The DEQ received a total of eight public comments concerning this recommendation.

After consideration of the public comments and review of technical information pertinent to this topic, the DEQ made a decision to recommend that the EQC determine that current technologies available at the UMCDF are the best available technology for processing secondary wastes. The purpose of this notice is to invite you to provide comments to the DEQ related to specific conditions within the recommendation.

Why has this been proposed?

In February 1997 the DEQ issued the UMCDF Hazardous Waste Permit No. ORQ 000 009 431. As part of the permitting process, the EQC concluded that several regulatory statutes had been met. ORS 466.055(3) required the Commission to find that the proposed new facility would use the best available technology for treating or disposing of hazardous waste; in this case, as a result of processing agent-filled munitions and bulk items.

Based on information the Department reviewed from the U.S. Department of the Army (Army) and Ecology and Environment (an independent subcontractor to the Department), the Commission found that incineration was the best available technology for disposing of secondary wastes generated at the UMCDF.

At the time the 1997 finding was made, the Dunnage Incinerator was part of the facility design; and the intent was to install, systemize, and operate the Dunnage Incinerator to destroy certain secondary wastes.

Subsequently, however, due to experience gained from the operation of the Dunnage Incinerator at the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System and the Tooele Chemical Agent Disposal Facility, the Army did not install a Dunnage Incinerator at the UMCDF.

A review of information by the Department clearly showed that incineration of the wastes originally intended for disposal in the Dunnage Incinerator still represented the best available technology at the UMCDF. However, the Dunnage Incinerator itself no longer represents the best available technology for the processing of UMCDF secondary wastes as there are other, more efficient incinerators in already place at the UMCDF to successfully treat secondary wastes. A trial burn demonstrating the capability to successfully treat secondary wastes was performed in January 2007. The existing technologies are more timely, cost effective, and technologically superior to the construction and operation of a Dunnage Incinerator.

Where is the facility located?

The UMCDF is located in Northeastern Oregon on the Umatilla Chemical Depot, about seven miles west of Hermiston, Oregon (175 miles east of Portland, Oregon). The address is 78072 Ordnance Road, Hermiston, OR 97838.

What kind of facility is the UMCDF?

The Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (UMCDF) is a hazardous waste storage and treatment facility that utilizes four incinerators to destroy the stockpile of chemical warfare agents that has been stored at the Umatilla Chemical Depot (UMCD) since 1962. The UMCDF is owned by the U.S. Army and operated by Washington Demilitarization Company, LLC. A hazardous waste storage and treatment permit for the UMCDF was issued February 12, 1997.

The chemical agent stockpile at the UMCD originally included about 3,717 tons of nerve agents ("GB" and "VX") and blister agent ("mustard" or "HD") in liquid form. The chemical agents are contained in munitions such as rockets, projectiles, and land mines and in bulk containers such as spray tanks, bombs, and "ton containers." All of the chemical warfare agents are highly toxic.

What happens next?

After completion of the public comment period, the DEQ will review and consider written comments received during the comment period. The DEQ will then finalize a staff report for consideration by the EQC. The staff report will include an explanation of the DEQ's reasoning in coming to its final recommendation as well as the DEQ's responses to significant comments received during both the first and second comment periods.
