FMC Hazardous Waste Site #40.010 Permit Modification Public Notice

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) has reviewed the Permit Modification
Request (Modification Request) submitted by FMC Corporation (FMC) on May 06, 2022. The
Modification Request proposed to enter into a Remedy Agreement (RA) under the Voluntary
Remediation Program (VRP), and other necessary updates to the following sections of the Hazardous
Waste Permit: Waste Analysis Plan, Groundwater Protection Standard, Corrective Action Schedule,
Hazardous Waste Unit Landfill Maintenance Plan, Sampling Analysis Plans for the Groundwater
Compliance Program and Corrective Action, and the Monitoring Well Installation, Maintenance and
Closure Plan. The Former Kemmerer Coke Plant is located at 1733 Elkol Road, Kemmerer, Lincoln
County, Wyoming. The WDEQ determined the Modification Request is complete and technically
adequate. Based on the Modification Request, the WDEQ has completed a Draft Modified Permit.
Therefore, WDEQ is giving notice and soliciting comments from the public regarding the FMC Draft
Modified Permit. FMC currently conducts activities under a Hazardous Waste Permit issued by the
WDEQ on December 6, 2005, and renewed on March 11, 2016. The FMC Draft Modified Permit serves to modify the 2016 Permit. The FMC Draft Modified Permit addresses post-closure care and corrective action for the Hazardous Waste Management Unit, while the RA addresses the necessary cleanup on the Facility Property.
