Notice of Proposed Permit Renewal Action
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is announcing its intent to renew and issue a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act hazardous waste permit, EPA identification number KSD007246846, to Clean Harbors Kansas, LLC the owner and the operator of the facility located at 2549 N. New York Ave., Wichita, Kansas. The permit will allow the facility to treat and store on-site facility-generated and off-site customer-generated containerized hazardous waste and requires the continued implementation of previously approved corrective actions by the Environmental Protection Agency to protect human health and the environment. The permit does not authorize the on-site disposal of hazardous waste and any treatment or storage of hazardous waste not authorized in the permit is prohibited.
The draft permit is being considered for issuance under authority of the Kansas Statutes Annotated (K.S.A.) 65-3430 et seq. and Kansas Administrative Regulations (K.A.R.) 28-31-4 through 28-31-279a. Documents that support the draft permit conditions and all data submitted by the applicant are part of the administrative record.
State hazardous waste laws require that the public be given at least 45 days to review the administrative record for the draft permit prior to KDHE taking a final action. The purpose of having a public comment period is to ensure that interested parties have an opportunity to evaluate the conditions specified in the draft permit and to provide their input into the permit decision-making process. A copy of the administrative record which includes the draft permit, the fact sheet, the permit application, and all information pertaining to this permit action is available for public review September 21, through November 6, 2023, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., during normal business hours at the following locations:
