DE16NWP-003, Rev 1 Notice of Construction - Hanford

This comment period is regarding a proposed a change to the Non-Radioactive Air Emissions Notice of Construction Approval Order DE16NWP-003 for the Effluent Management Facility (EMF).  The EMF is located on the Hanford Site in southeastern Washington.  The Permittee proposed an alternative condition for demonstrating dimethyl mercury emissions sampling compliance.  The proposal is to perform monthly dimethyl mercury grab sampling instead of elemental mercury continuous emissions monitoring.  The proposed approach does not result in an emissions increase and does not impact ambient air quality standards.

The permittee is U.S. Department of Energy, Office of River Protection.
