Hazardous Waste Cleanup: Alliance Tubular Holdings LLC in Jane Lew, West Virginia

On this page:

In a memo to the file on June 17, 1999, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) Permitting Program Manager stated that the Pittsburgh Tube Company had, “complied with the groundwater requirements as required by the Facility’s Part B Permit issued on September 08, 1988”. After a review of the groundwater monitoring data and subsequent statistical analysis of the data submitted by the Facility, the Hazardous Waste Permitting Unit concluded in an interoffice memo dated August 19, 1999 that, “based on the relatively low concentration of hazardous metals constituents and the low solubility of the precipitated metal hydroxides in the sludges that may have remained after the 1987 interim status closure, the Facility poses very little threat to human health and the environment and there is no need for future corrective action”. The WVDEP Assistant Chief then issued Pittsburgh Tube Company a letter on September 29, 1999 stating that the “WVDEP - Office of Waste Management no longer considers the Jane Lew, West Virginia facility to be subject to the permitting or post-closure requirements of 40 CFR Parts 264 or 265 and, therefore, groundwater monitoring activities for those purpose are no longer necessary”.
