[27 Pa.B. 5561]

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) and the Delaware County Regional Water Quality Control Authority (DELCORA) have agreed to a settlement of the above matters. The Commonwealth had issued a Plan Approval on August 27, 1996 for installation of additional burners in its sewage sludge incinerators, and a Plan Approval on August 29, 1996 for installation of an odor scrubber in the belt filter press room. DELCORA filed timely appeals of the Plan Approvals. On March 12, 1997 the Department issued a Reasonably Available Control Technology Operating Permit. DELCORA filed a timely appeal of the Operating Permit.

   The parties have agreed to a settlement, the major provisions of which include: the Department has issued revised Plan Approvals and Operating Permit which DELCORA will not appeal, DELCORA will conduct further testing to determine whether the emission standards in the Plan Approvals allow for adequate operating margins, and DELCORA will obtain Department certification for installation of continuous temperature monitors for both incinerators. Both Plan Approvals and the Operating Permit are available for review at the office of the Department.
