Ohio EPA will hold a public meeting to present information and accept comments on draft modifications to the wastewater discharge permit related to the proposed PTTGCA Petrochemical Complex that would be located at Old Route 7 and Ferry Landing Road (Hwy. 2), Shadyside.
The information session is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Dec. 12, 2018, and will be held at Shadyside Community Center, 50 E. 39th Street. The public hearing will immediately follow, during which the public can submit comments for the record concerning the draft modification.
The modifications to the wastewater discharge permit conditions requested by PTTGC America LLC would:
decrease the levels of pollutants to be discharged to the Ohio River;
change the locations where storm water, which is water that runs off impervious surfaces after rain events, will be discharged; and
modify limits at an internal monitoring station that does not directly discharge to surface water.
During the hearing, the public may present testimony concerning the modifications to the wastewater discharge permit.
Ohio EPA values public input. Comments will be accepted both verbally and in writing at the hearing and may be submitted through Dec. 19, 2018. Written comments may be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Ohio EPA-DSW Permits Processing, P.O. Box 1049, Columbus, Ohio 43216-1049.
