Ohio EPA Announces Meeting for Permit Issued to Former Sodium Plant

A Nov. 8, 2012, public meeting has been announced by Ohio EPA to discuss a draft hazardous waste permit renewal and modification issued to RMI Titanium Company for its former sodium plant located at 600 State Road in Ashtabula.

The information session and public hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Ashtabula Township Hall (C.D. Ray Community Room), 2718 N. Ridge Road East, Ashtabula. If issued final, the renewal permit and modification would allow RMI to continue addressing historical contamination on the property. While much of the site has undergone corrective action, a closed landfill requires continued monitoring and maintenance.

The draft modification requires RMI to enter into an environmental covenant with Ohio EPA to restrict future use of the facility and ground water. It also requires the company to: properly maintain the landfill cap; implement a ground water monitoring plan; provide funds for long-term monitoring and maintenance; protect authorized personnel working on the property; and prevent unauthorized entry.

In 1992, RMI Titanium ceased production at the sodium plant and later removed the manufacturing buildings. The site was parceled and portions of the property were sold. The landfill, in use between 1950 and 1981, remains on the property.
