Alternative Disposal of Radioactive Material Request

[38 Pa.B. 5718]
[Saturday, October 11, 2008]

   Under the requirements at 25 Pa. Code § 215.1(e), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has submitted a request to the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) for approval to dispose of building demolition debris from the Safety Light Corporation site in Bloomsburg, Columbia County, PA at a hazardous waste landfill in Idaho. The landfill is permitted to receive low concentrations of certain radioactive materials if the material is approved for disposal by the appropriate regulatory body. The Safety Light Corporation Site is on the National Priorities List and is being remediated by EPA under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act and the National Contingency Plan. The EPA believes the building demolition debris from the Safety Light Corporation Site contains minimum levels of radioactive contamination, making it acceptable for disposal at a hazardous waste landfill, if approved by the Department.

   The EPA's Alternative Disposal of Radioactive Material Request for the Safety Light Corporation Site in Bloomsburg is available for public review and comment. The Department will accept written comments on the EPA's request until November 10, 2008. Comments should be submitted to Director, Bureau of Radiation Protection, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O. Box 8469, Harrisburg, PA 17105 or RA-EPDecommissioning Following the public comment period, the Department will make a final determination regarding the EPA's request. Notice of the Department's final determination will be published in a future edition of the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
