Administrative Order No. DEQ 25-2019
Effective date: 11/15/19
See Oregon Bulletin, December 2019
DEQ amended its hazardous waste rules, at chapter 340, division 101, of the Oregon Administrative Rules. The amendments concern a wastewater treatment sludge that results from operations that ATI Cast Products, in Albany, Oregon, conducts. That sludge is currently categorized as hazardous waste. Under an EPA-approved process, ATI has petitioned DEQ to re-classify this sludge as not hazardous. DEQ has reviewed the analysis of this sludge. DEQ has concluded it is proper and safe to exempt this sludge from being categorized as hazardous waste. The adopted rule amendments implement this decision.
