The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) is giving notice and soliciting comments from the public regarding the Draft Permit for HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining, LLC.  HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining is located at 300 Morrie Avenue in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  The comment period begins April 25, 2018 and ends June 11, 2018.

HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining includes a closed Hazardous Waste Landfill (HWL), which was constructed and then closed between May 1990 and November 1990.  The Closed HWL has not accepted wastes since November 1990, and cannot accept new waste under the provisions of the current RCRA Permit.  On June 12, 1997, WDEQ requested that Frontier submit a RCRA post-closure care permit application for the Closed HWL.  Frontier submitted the application on January 9, 1998.  A final Post-Closure Care Permit was issued to Frontier on October 26, 2007, with a term of ten (10) years.  A five-year review of the Permit by WDEQ, dated June 28, 2012, found that no revisions were necessary for the Permit.  On April 26, 2017, HollyFrontier timely submitted an application to WDEQ to renew the 2007 Permit.  The Draft Permit is based on the April 26, 2017 application and covers post-closure care for the Hazardous Waste Landfill, as well as facility-wide and off-site Corrective Action.  The renewed Permit will transfer all remaining Corrective Action obligations under the 1995 Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) to the Permit.

Beginning April 25, 2018 and ending June 11, 2018, the WDEQ is providing an opportunity to comment on the Draft Renewal Permit for HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining.  The Draft Permit has been prepared as required by WDEQ/Hazardous Waste Management Rules and Regulations.  The Draft Permit, Fact Sheet, Permit Application, and Administrative Record are available for public inspection and copying at the following locations:  the Laramie County Library at 2220 Pioneer Avenue, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82001 and the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality/Solid and Hazardous Waste Division located at 200 W. 17th Street, 2nd Floor, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002.

Any person may submit written comments on the Draft HollyFrontier Cheyenne Refining Permit, may request a notice of the final permit decision, or request a public hearing.  Written comments and requests for a hearing will be accepted by WDEQ during the period April 25, 2018, through June 11, 2018.  Written comments or requests must be sent to the address listed below.   Written comments or requests must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on June 11, 2018.
