OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT

OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY NOTICE OF POTENTIAL PERMIT CONDITIONS FOR A CLASS 3 PERMIT MODIFICATION TO A POST-CLOSURE PERMIT OF A HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (Department) has reviewed an application for a permit modification to shorten the post-closure care monitoring period for a closed hazardous waste Land Treatment Unit (LTU) at Dayton Tire manufacturing plant (Dayton) located in Section 8, Township 11 North, Range 4 West in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. The permit application was submitted on April 1, 1996 and is being handled as a request for a class 3 modification to the current post-closure permit.

The LTU was operated to receive and treat oily wastewater generated from several sources at the Dayton tire manufacturing facility. These wastes exhibited the characteristic of ignitability and were assigned the EPA Hazardous Waste Number of D001. Waste application began in June 1979 and ended in February 1987. The wastewater was sprayed on the LTU and tilled into the top six inches of soil. The LTU was certified as closed on February 8, 1991. The current post-closure permit contains conditions for monitoring and maintenance of the closed LTU. The proposed modification to the current permit would allow for termination of both unsaturated zone soil core and groundwater monitoring. All other permit conditions would remain in effect until the permit expires on May 2, 2003. …
