Fwd: E-M:/ Michigan Top Toxic Water Dischargers, 1998



Note that Stone Container in Ontonagon County is 9th on this statewide list with 30,479 pounds of toxic discharges to water. Stone's discharge permit is currently up for re-issuance. A draft permit has been published by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and proposes the following modifications:

- Deletion of the authorization for the discharge of sanitary wastewater because Stone Container now discharges it's sanitary wastewater to the City of Ontonagon Wastewater Treatment Plant;
- a small reduction in some of the BOD5 and total suspended solids limits for monitoring point 001A;
- Elimination of monitoring for total copper because previous monitoring showed that it was not present at levels of concern;
- Addition of a limit and monitoring in calendar years 2000 and 2004 for acute toxicity to confirm that toxicity requirements are being met on a continuing basis
- Elimination of chronic toxicity testing because it has been replaced with acute toxicity testing;
- elimination of the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan language because the requirements have been satisfied and the untreated discharges have been eliminated;
- various revisions to update permit language.

You can obtain copies of the public notice, fact sheet and draft permit from Surface Water Quality Division, Marquette District Office, 1990 US 41 South, Marquette, MI 49855, Phone (906) 228-6568.

For more information about the draft permit, procedures for commenting or to request a public hearing contact Michael Bitondo at (517) 335-3303

Comments are due June 2, 2000.

These are Michigan's top toxic water dischargers in EPA's data release
today that are 100 lbs for 1998 and over.  Frankly I don't believe some of 
these reports.

As near as I can tell, these reports do not include toxic discharges to 
municipal wastewater
treatment plants.

Facility name, address, city, county are followed by the amount discharged 
to surface
waters in pounds in 1998.
