Document Description
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is approving Clean Harbors Berryessa Facility's (facility) request for a Class 1* permit modification to increase the number of batches processed in reaction tank at Unit 9 to accommodate the increase of wastewater generated by the solar power cell industries in Santa Clara County. The request was dated June 10, 2010. This offsite waste is a low pH wastewater containing metals and has no organic constituents. DTSC reviewed the request and determined that the request for a Class 1* permit modification is identified in Title 22, Appendix 1(G)(1)(e) by an asterisk which required prior written approval from DTSC. DTSC's approval is in accordance with Title 22, CCR, section 66279.42(a)(2). The reaction tank at Unit 9 is an 8,000-gallon tank and is permitted for use as a neutralization tank processing 2 batches of wastewater in an 8-hour work day. The reaction tank has a permitted treatment capacity for 20,000 gallons per day (treating two batches of wastewater per 8-hour work day). This means increasing the treatment capacity at Unit 9 from 20,000 gallons per day to 32,000 gallons per day which results to an increase of 12,000 gallons per day for Unit 9's treatment capacity.
