Document Number: 05-14189
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-19
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to grant a petition submitted by General Motors Corporation-Arlington Truck Assembly Plant (GM-Arlington) to exclude (or delist) a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) sludge generated by GM-Arlington in Arlington, TX. from the lists of hazardous wastes. EPA used the Delisting Risk Assessment Software (DRAS) in the evaluation of the impact of the petitioned waste on human health and the environment. EPA bases its proposed decision to grant the petition on an evaluation of waste-specific information provided by the petitioner. This proposed decision, if finalized, would exclude the petitioned waste from the requirements of hazardous waste regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). If finalized, EPA would conclude that GM-Arlington's petitioned waste is non-hazardous with respect to the original listing criteria. EPA would also conclude that GM-Arlington's process minimizes short- term and long-term threats from the petitioned waste to human health and the environment.
