LDR Rules and Regulations 2004

Date: December 23, 2004
Citation: 69 FR 76863
Subject: Land Disposal Restrictions: Site-Specific Treatment Standard Variance for Selenium Waste for Chemical Waste Management, Chemical Services, LLC; Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule
Abstract: On November 19, 2004, the Environmental Protection Agency published a direct final rule to grant a site-specific treatment standard variance from the Land Disposal Restrictions (LDR) treatment standards to Chemical Waste Management, Chemical Services LLC (CWM) in Model City, New York. EPA also published an accompanying proposed rule to supplant this rule in the event EPA received any adverse comment on the direct final rule. This variance is for a selenium-bearing hazardous waste generated by Guardian Industries Corp. (Guardian), a glass manufacturing company. EPA has received a comment on this treatment variance that it deems adverse, and is withdrawing the direct final rule. Therefore, this site-specific treatment standard variance will not take effect on January 3, 2005 and CWM cannot treat the Guardian waste under a treatment standard variance. EPA will review and address all the comments received on this variance and will decide what action to take in a future Federal Register document. We will not institute a second comment period on this action.

Subject: Land Disposal Restrictions: Site-Specific Treatment Standard Variance for Selenium Waste for Chemical Waste Management, Chemical Services, LLC; Direct Final Rule
Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or Agency) is granting a site-specific treatment standard variance from the Land Disposal Restrictions (LDR) treatment standards for a selenium-bearing hazardous waste generated by the glass manufacturing industry to CWM Chemical Services LLC (CWM (Model City, NY)) to stabilize a selenium-bearing hazardous waste generated by Guardian Industries Corp. (Guardian) at their RCRA permitted facility in Model City, New York. EPA is granting this variance because the chemical properties of the waste differ significantly from those of the waste used to establish the current LDR treatment standard for selenium (5.7 mg/L, as measured by the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP)), and the petition has adequately demonstrated that the waste cannot be treated to meet this treatment standard.
