CRRA and Covanta Enter Consent Orders for Air Emissions Violations

Date: Nov 16, 2009

Town: Hartford

On November 16, 2009, the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP) entered into consent orders with the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority (CRRA) and Covanta for cases involving air emissions violations at trash-to-energy plants in Wallingford and Hartford that will improve operating procedures at these facilities and provide funding for new municipal recycling initiatives. Covanta operates both facilities under contract with CRRA. The dioxin violations at the Wallingford plant were discovered during the facility’s annual performance tests conducted on May 23, 2007. Follow-up testing on October 9 and 10, 2007 showed that dioxin emissions from the plant were back within permitted limits. The consent order also addresses violations at this facility stemming from the failure to properly perform quarterly audits on the facility’s continuous emissions monitoring equipment during the third quarter of 2006. The consent order also requires CRRA to submit a report detailing the cause of the excessive dioxin emissions; conduct more frequent tests for dioxin emissions from 2009 through 2013; and to evaluate the environmental impact of the increased use of carbon to control dioxin emissions. The violations at the Hartford (Mid- Connecticut) plant involved emissions in excess of the maximum allowable permit limits for particulate matter and ammonia. The violation of the particulate matter emissions limit was discovered June 13, 2007 and corrected by August 8, 2007. The May 4, 2007 emissions test showed emissions of particulate matter were 13% higher than the permit limit. The violation of the ammonia emissions limit was discovered on June 17, 2008 and corrected by July 8, 2008. The May 5, 2008 test showed that ammonia emissions were 12.25% higher than the permit limit. The violations were discovered through emissions testing mandated by CTDEP.

The consent order for the Wallingford plant includes a payment of $355,000 to a CTDEP fund for environmental projects as the result of a violation of permit limits for dioxin emissions at the Wallingford facility. These funds will be used to assist municipalities in strengthening recycling programs, which will save money for cities and towns by reducing their costs for refuse disposal. The consent order for the Hartford plant includes a provision for installing a new system to provide continuous monitoring of ammonia emissions. The system is expected to cost approximately $70,000. The presence of ammonia in the air contributes to the formation of fine particulate matter, a federally regulated air pollutant. The new system will be the first of its kind at a Connecticut trash-to-energy facility and surpasses the monitoring and testing requirements for facilities like the Mid-Connecticut Project. The monitoring system at the Mid-Connecticut Project will provide continuous real time data concerning ammonia emissions to ensure compliance with permit limits. It will help provide opportunities to minimize ammonia emissions and PM2.5 emissions in the ambient air.

The Judgment requires Chromium Process to immediately reduce its discharge to the Housatonic River by 60%, from 144,000 gallons a day to 60,000 gallons a day and completely eliminate the discharge by December 31, 2009. Chromium Process is also required to eliminate the use of cyanide at the facility by December 21, 2008. In addition, Chromium Process is required to pay a civil penalty of $75,000 and pay up to $600,000 in potential future penalties for failure to comply with the injunctive provisions of the Judgment. An additional civil penalty of $1,000 is to be paid by the company’s General Manager. The Judgment also requires Chromium Process to pay stipulated penalties of $25,000 for any future violations. These stipulated penalties are to be paid through a $50,000 cash bond posted by the company with the Superior Court. Should the cash bond be exhausted, Chromium Process must post a second $50,000 cash bond. In the event that Chromium Process fails to replenish the bond or depletes the bond a second time, it must immediately surrender its discharge permits. After the bond is exhausted, any further violations require that Chromium Process pay the balance of the remaining $600,000.

The Department began an investigation into the Chromium Process Company after observing piping modifications that allegedly allowed the facility to bypass its pretreatment system and discharge untreated wastewater directly to the Shelton sanitary sewer. It appeared that the treatment system piping had been altered such that metal hydroxide sludge, a hazardous waste, could also be sent directly to the sewer. Further review of the treatment systems disclosed additional examples of disrepair, including inoperative monitoring equipment and missing pumps. The Department also discovered that the company was not collecting representative samples of its discharges for its self monitoring program. Analysis of a sample collected by the Department at the proper location contained over 5,000 times the concentration of metals contained in a sample collected at the location used by Chromium Process. In May 2007, the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office filed a 21 count complaint on behalf of the Department against the Chromium Process Company and its General Manager. The complaint cited the company for persistent noncompliance with its discharge permits and violations of hazardous waste regulations. Alleged violations included failure to properly operate and maintain the wastewater treatment systems, failure to properly monitor the discharges, failure to accurately report monitoring results, failure to comply with the stormwater general permit, and failure to meet effluent limits. Additionally, the Department collected eight samples of the discharge to the Housatonic River for aquatic toxicity analysis. All eight samples failed to meet permitted limits. During the same time period, the Chromium Process Company reported that the NPDES discharge met all aquatic toxicity limits. In August 2008 the Department published a Tentative Determination to deny applications submitted by the Chromium Process Company for the renewal of its discharge permits. The company has requested a hearing to appeal the determination which is presently being considered by the Department’s Office of Adjudications.
