Public Notice

The Administrator, Division of Environmental Protection, Carson City, Nevada is issuing the following notice of proposed action in accordance with the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS). The Administrator has received a complete application to renew Water Pollution Control Permit NEV89048 for a discharge from:
FMC Corporation
Po Box 800
6 Miles Northeast Of Battle Mountain
Battle Mountain, Lander County, Nevada 89820

The Applicant requests to renew authorization to discharge truck and equipment wash water through liquid-solid and oil-water separators before discharge to a ditch that irrigates trees, and for the operation of a sanitary septic system also used for discharge of deionization resin backwash water. The facility was used as a trans-loading operation for sodium cyanide and hydrogen peroxide. Facility operations have been discontinued, however, future operation remains plausible. The maximum design flow of the oil-water separator limits the discharge to 144,000 gpd. Daily septic discharge is limited to the equivalent size of the septic system. The proposed permit is for continued use of separated wastewater for irrigation, and upon issuance, the permit will remain in effect for a five (5) year period

On the basis of preliminary review of the requirements of the NRS and implementing regulations, the Administrator proposes to renew the permit to discharge, subject to defined effluent limitations. Persons wishing to comment upon or request a hearing, pursuant to Nevada Administrative Code-Water Pollution Control, regarding the proposed Administrative determination(s), should submit their comments or requests, in writing, to:

The Administrator of the Division of Environmental Protection gives notice that an application for a Water Pollution Control Permit for the Black Rock Canyon Mine and Mill Project, a beneficiation facility utilizing physical separation methods to extract gold, has been properly filed with the Division of Environmental Protection in Carson City. The applicant for Water Pollution Control Permit NEV2004102 is:
    Nevada Rae Gold, Inc.
    Black Rock Canyon Mine and Mill Project
    465 South Meadows Parkway, Suite 20
    Reno, Nevada 89521
The facility, known as the Black Rock Canyon Mine and Mill Project, is located in east-central Lander County, Nevada, within portions of Sections 4 and 10, Township 29 North, Range 47 East, and Section 19, Township 29 North, Range 48 East, Mount Diablo Baseline and Meridian, approximately 30 air-miles southeast of the town of Battle Mountain.

The project consists of a physical separation mining and milling operation (Nevada Administrative Code 445A.414) with a maximum annual production rate of 810,000 tons of ore. Gold-bearing gravels will be dry-screened at the mine site in Black Rock Canyon and under-size material will be hauled by truck to the gravity separation mill located approximately four (4) miles to the southeast, adjacent to Nevada State Route 306. The gravity separation mill facility incorporates a feed hopper, grizzly, trommel, sluice, concentrating tables, four (4) earthen settling ponds, and associated tanks, pumps, pipes, sumps and conveyors to process and beneficiate the ore. Process make-up water will be obtained from two wells located on the mill site and will be recycled to process. Chemicals are not approved for use in the beneficiation process. Facilities are required to be designed, constructed, operated and closed without any discharge or release in excess of those standards established in regulation except for meteorological events which exceed the design storm event. The proposed facility is anticipated to disturb up to 163 acres of public land and up to 60 acres of private fee land.

The Administrator is constrained to issue the Water Pollution Control Permit or to deny the application. The Administrator has made the tentative decision to issue the permit.

Notice of Proposed Action

The Administrator of the Division of Environmental Protection gives notice that an application for the renewal of Water Pollution Control Permit (WPCP) NEV0091029 for the North Block Project has been properly filed with the Division of Environmental Protection in Carson City. The applicant for the renewal of WPCP NEV0091029 is:
Barrick Goldstrike Mines, Inc.
P.O. Box 29
Elko, NV 89803
The facility is located in the Little Boulder Basin adjacent to the Tuscarora Mountain Range on the county line between Elko and Eureka Counties, approximately 27 miles northwest of the community of Carlin, Nevada. The North Block facilities are located within Section 13, Township 36 North, Range 49 East, and Sections 7, 8, 17, and 18, Township 36 North, Range 50 East, Mount Diablo Baseline & Meridian (MDB&M). The Goldstrike underground mining operations at Meikle and Rodeo are included under this permit. Except for the former emergency pond, the leach pad (Phase I), process ponds, and gold adsorption plant were closed in preparation for the roaster facility. The emergency pond is now used to store fresh water for use in the roaster operations and provide full containment of runoff resulting from the 100-year, 24-hour storm event from the stockpiles. The leached material from the Phase I heap was placed within the North Block tailings impoundment. The other two proposed leach pad phases were never built. Instead, sulfide ore stockpile pads and associated containment ponds, two parallel roaster circuits, and a carbon-in-leach circuit, have been built and are in operation. The tailings facilities primarily include the subaerial tailings impoundment in the North Block, a drainage collection and return sump, drainage collection (overflow) pond, and pipelines. The project is designed, constructed, and will be operated and closed without any discharge or release in excess of those standards established in regulation except for meteorological events that exceed the design storm event.

The Administrator is constrained to issue the water pollution control permit, or to deny the application. The Administrator has made the tentative determination to issue the permit.

Persons wishing to comment upon the proposed permit, to recommend terms and conditions for consideration of incorporation in the permit, or who request a public hearing pursuant to the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) Chapter 445A, must submit their comments, objections, or requests no later than September 29, 2004, to:
    Nevada Division of Environmental Protection
    Bureau of Mining Regulation and Reclamation

    Carson City, NV 89706-0851
All comments or objections received during the public notice period will be considered in the final determination regarding this application. If the Division determines written comments or requests indicate a significant degree of public interest in this matter, the Administrator shall schedule a public hearing in accordance with the requirements of NAC 445A.405.

The permit renewal information and all application documents are on file at the Division and are available for public inspection and copying pursuant to NRS 445A.665. For more information contact Bob Carlson at (775) 687-9401, or toll free in Nevada (800) 992-0900 ext. 4670.

This permit was issued April 11, 2002 to regulate the discharge of stormwater and maintenance-related wash water from the state highway system within the Lake Tahoe basin. The permit requires the application of best management practices to the maximum extent practicable to minimize the discharge of pollutants such as sediment, deicing material, petroleum, nitrogen, phosphorus, and metals. Subsequently, NPDES Permit # NV0023329 was issued February 23, 2004 which sets up a similar program statewide. Since the Lake Tahoe basin discharges were then covered by two permits, NDOT submitted a request to cancel the original permit. The administrator has made the tentative determination to honor the request and cancel permit NV0023205.

Persons wishing to comment upon or object to this proposed determination, or request a hearing pursuant to Nevada Administrative Code Section 445A.238, should submit their comments, objections, or request in writing by mail, fax, e-mail, or in person to the Division at the address given below. A request for a hearing must indicate the interest of the person filing the request and the reasons why a hearing is warranted. To be considered, all comments, objections, or requests must be received within the thirty day comment period that begins with publication of this notice in the newspaper and ends on Friday September 10, 2004. All comments and objections received within the comment period will be considered in the formulation of the final determination regarding the request to cancel the permit. If written comments indicate a significant degree of interest the Administrator will hold a public hearing. A public notice of such hearing would be issued not less than thirty days prior to the hearing date.

If the determination of the Administrator is substantially altered based on the comments and objections received, the Administrator will give public notice of the revised determination.

Notice

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Bureau of Water Pollution Control within the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection is soliciting public comment on the Draft 2004 Intended Use Plan for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF).

The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) Amendments of 1996 authorize the DWSRF to assist public water systems to finance the costs of infrastructure needed to achieve or maintain compliance with the SDWA requirements and to protect public health.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) awards capitalization grants to states, which allows the state to provide low cost loans and other types of assistance to eligible water systems. In order to receive grant funds from USEPA, the state must prepare an Intended Use Plan and provide it to the public for review and comment.

The Intended Use Plan describes how the state intends to use available DWSRF funds for the year to meet the objectives of the Safe Drinking Water Act and further the goal of protecting public health. The Bureau has developed the Intended Use Plan as a planning tool to distribute the federal funding allocation to the "account for the revolving fund" for the loan fund and to the "account for set-aside programs" for various other administrative and technical assistance purposes.

Written public comments should be submitted by September 15, 2004. The Draft 2004 Intended Use Plan may be obtained in person, by mail, or by calling (775) 687-9488. Questions or comments should be directed to:
Adele Basham Drinking Water State Revolving Fund

Notice of Proposed Action

The Administrator, Division of Environmental Protection, Carson City, Nevada is issuing the following notice of proposed action under the Nevada Revised Statutes. The Administrator has received a complete application for the renewal of groundwater discharge permit NEV92007 from the following applicant:
Nevada Cement Company
P. O. Box 840
Fernley, NV 89408
The facility is a Portland cement manufacturing plant, currently permitted to discharge non-contact cooling water, used to cool bearings and other rotating equipment, to groundwaters of the State of Nevada at a rate of 720,000 gallons per day. Cooling water is obtained from two on-site wells. The water is circulated through internal cooling system tubing that does not allow the water to come in direct contact with oil, grease or process materials in the equipment. The cooling water exiting the equipment has an elevated temperature. The water is sent to a cooling tower to lower the temperature; water from the cooling tower discharges to a holding basin. The water is then conveyed from the holding basin through an underground pipe which surfaces and discharges to an on-site evaporation/percolation ditch. No cooling water is allowed to flow off-site.

Persons wishing to comment on or object to the proposed determinations by the Administrator regarding permit issuance, or request a hearing pursuant to the Nevada Administrative Code, Water Pollution Control, should submit their comments or request, in writing, within thirty (30) days of the date of newspaper publication, hand-delivered or postmarked no later than 5:00 P.M. on September 10, 2004, either in person or by mail to:

Comments and/or hearing requests received via facsimile or e-mail before 5:00 P.M. September 10, 2004 will also be accepted. All requests for hearings must indicate the interest of the person filing the request and the reason(s) why a hearing is warranted. All comments or objections received within the thirty (30) day comment period will be considered in the formulation of final determinations regarding the application. If written comments indicate a significant degree of public interest in the proposed permit, the Administrator shall hold a public hearing. The public notice of such hearings will be issued not less than thirty (30) days prior to the public hearing date.

If no hearing is held and the determinations of the Administrator are substantially changed from the tentative determinations, the Administrator will give public notice of the revised determinations. Additional comments and objections will be considered at that time.

The application, proposed permit, comments received, and other information are on file and may be copied or copies may be obtained by writing to the above address or by contacting Janine Hartley, Bureau of Water Pollution Control at (775) 687-9458, or at .

NOTICE OF PROPOSED ACTION

Nevada Division of Environmental Protection
Bureau of Water Quality Planning


Total Maximum Daily Load for Walker Lake, Mineral County

Pursuant to Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act, the State of Nevada is required to develop a list of impaired waterbodies that need additional work beyond existing controls to achieve or maintain water quality standards. For those waters included on this 303(d) List, the State of Nevada is required to develop Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs 1 ).

On October 16, 2001, Mineral County and the Walker Lake Working Group filed a civil action in federal district court against EPA under the Clean Water Act alleging that the EPA had failed to take necessary steps to save Walker Lake. On November 22, 2002, the parties entered into a Consent Decree agreeing to the following actions:
    1. If Nevada fails to include Walker Lake on the 2002 303(d) List for total dissolved solids (TDS), EPA will either:
      a. Determine that Walker Lake needs to be listed for TDS and amend Nevada's 303(d) List; or

      b. Determine that Walker Lake need not be listed for TDS and provide a copy of its decision to the Plaintiffs.

    2. If Walker Lake is placed on Nevada's 2002 303(d) List for TDS, EPA agrees to establish a Walker Lake TDS TMDL by March 15, 2005, unless Nevada establishes and EPA approves a TMDL prior to March 15, 2005.
Prior to the issuance of the Consent Decree, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) had already included Walker Lake on its 2002 303(d) List (dated October 2002). After discussions with EPA, NDEP agreed to develop a Walker Lake TDS TMDL in accordance with the Consent Decree. NDEP intends to meet the March 15, 2005 deadline established by the Consent Decree.

The Division is issuing this Public Notice to solicit public comment on the proposed TMDL project. Individuals, agencies and other entities are encouraged to provide comments, information and data which NDEP can take into consideration in developing the DRAFT TMDL Report. Written or E-mailed public comments should be submitted to NDEP-BWQP by 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 3, 2004. Questions or comments should be directed to:
    Randy Pahl, P.E.
    Nevada Division of Environmental Protection
    Bureau of Water Quality Planning
    333 W. Nye Lane, Room 138
    Carson City, Nevada 89706 (775) 687-9453
Following completion of the DRAFT TMDL report in November 2004 (anticipated date), public comment will again be solicited. Please contact Randy Pahl if you wish to be placed on the mailing list to receive notice on the availability of the DRAFT TMDL report.

1 TMDLs are an assessment of the amount of pollutant a water body can receive and not violate water quality standards. Also, TMDLs provide a means to integrate the management of both point and nonpoint sources of pollution through the establishment of waste load allocations for point source discharges and load allocations for nonpoint sources. TMDLs are to be established at levels necessary to attain and maintain the applicable narrative and numerical water quality standards with consideration given to seasonal variations and a margin of safety.

Permanent dewatering of the Lloyd D. George United States Courthouse is required to prevent flooding of sub-level parking and basement areas. Treatment is required because the shallow groundwater in this area is reportedly contaminated with benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene, perchloroethylene, and petroleum hydrocarbons.

Monitoring of the treated discharge is conducted to ensure that surface waters are not degraded as a result of the discharge. Discharge of stormwater from the basement parking garage is also included in this permit.

On the basis of preliminary review of the requirements of the Nevada Revised Statutes, as amended, and implementing regulations, the Administrator proposes to issue a permit, NV0022942, to discharge for a five (5) year period from the expiration date of the previous permit, subject to certain effluent limitations.
