Document Description
On July 25, 2006, pursuant to 22 CCR Chapter 20, Appendix, D.I.b., DTSC approved the Class 1* Permit Modification for a six month closure schedule extension of the Drum Decant Unit (DDU) / Cyanide Treatment Unit (CTU). The new DDU/CTU date of closure will allow for time needed to perform additional soil sampling analytical tests. Kettleman Hills Facility (KHF) will need DTSC's confirmation of the soil's clean status. Once DTSC confirms the soil is clean, KHF will proceed with the prior approved DDU/CTU closure plan. The changes will affect the following sections in KHF's Hazardous Waste Facility Permit: Part IV, List of Closed, Inactive, and Non-Constructed Units and V.5.(B) (pages 31 and 37 of 38). There are no changes needed to the Part B Application (Operation Plan).

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is a minor change to the operation of the existing facility. The DDU and CTU are both inactive. In 1996, KHF stopped storing hazardous waste at the DDU and the CTU was partially closed. The closure data will be extended for 6 months. There will be no additional work at the DDU/CTU, so there will be no additional impacts to natural resources: air, water, and soil. Further testing of soil samples is anticipated to ensure clean closure. Once DTSC confirms the soil is clean, KHF will proceed with the prior approved DDU/CTU closure plan and dismantle the unit.
