Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Notice of a final decision on a UIC no migration petition reissuance.


Notice is hereby given that a reissuance of an exemption to the land disposal Restrictions, under the 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, has been granted to INVISTA Victoria for nine Class I hazardous waste injection wells located at their Victoria, Texas. The company has adequately demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Environmental Protection Agency by the petition reissuance application and supporting documentation that, to a reasonable degree of certainty, there will be no migration of hazardous constituents from the injection zone for as long as the waste remains hazardous. This final decision allows the underground injection by INVISTA Victoria, of the specific restricted hazardous wastes identified in this exemption reissuance, into Class I hazardous waste injection Wells WDW-004, WDW-028, WDW-029, WDW-030, WDW-105, WDW-106, WDW-142, WDW-143, and WDW-144 until December 31, 2025, unless EPA moves to terminate this exemption or other petition condition limitations are reached. Additional conditions included in this final decision may be reviewed by contacting the Region 6 Ground Water/UIC Section. A public notice was issued February 3, 2017, and the public comment period closed on March 21, 2017, and no comments were received. This decision constitutes final Agency action and there is no Administrative appeal. This decision may be reviewed/appealed in compliance with the Administrative Procedure Act.


This action is effective as of March 28, 2017.
