Download as PDF erowe on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 25282 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 100 / Wednesday, May 27, 2009 / Notices complaint filed by the United States alleges that MI Metals began charging dirty (coated) scrap into the furnace at its Oldsmar, Florida facility on July 14 2003, which made this furnace subject to the testing, operating, and monitoring requirements of 40 CFR Part 63, Subparts A and RRR. The United States’ Complaint further alleges that MI Metals violated a number of these requirements, including demonstration of an adequate emissions capture/ collection system on the furnace; appropriate performance testing to demonstrate compliance with the regulation’s dioxin and furan (‘‘D/F’’) emissions limit; and monitoring of key operating parameters to assure ongoing compliance with the emissions limit. The proposed Consent Decree would require MI Metals to make modifications to the emissions hood on the furnace; to re-test the furnace; and to comply with a number of operating and monitoring requirements. Finally, the proposed Consent Decree would require MI Metals to pay a $210,000 civil penalty. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.
