The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) will conduct a public hearing August 30, 2017 to receive comments on its proposal to reissue a hazardous waste storage and treatment permit (TNHW-129) for EnergySolutions, LLC.
The facility (EPA ID TND982157570) is located in Roane County at 1560 Bear Creek Road in Oak Ridge, TN, 37830.
The hearing will be held at 6:00 pm EDT on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 in the Grand Meeting Room at the DOE Oversight Office at 731 Emory Valley Road, Oak Ridge, TN 37830, with a public informational session starting at 5:30 pm. This informational session will have a question and answer format where the public can inspect and discuss the draft permit, the fact sheet, the statement of basis, and other materials one-on-one with DSWM staff and representatives of the applicant. There will be an opportunity for public comments to be recorded or written and submitted during this time.
