EPA has objected to Indianaís draft permit for U.S. Steel Corpís Gary Works


In a letter dated Oct. 1, 2007, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency formally raised objections to the Indiana Dept. of Environmental Management regarding the draft wastewater discharge permit the state has proposed for USS Steel Corp.ís Gary Works facility.

EPA objects to how discharge limits were set for several types of pollutants and the five-year compliance schedules contained in IDEMís draft permit.

Under the federal rules, IDEM may not issue the permit over an EPA objection. EPA will work with IDEM as it revises its draft permit to ensure it complies with federal law and EPA regulations.
