Department issues final permit modification to a Green County hazardous waste storage facility

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources issued a final hazardous waste permit modification to Safety-Kleen Systems Inc.

By modifying this permit, the Division of Environmental Quality acknowledges that the company has certified the approved final remedy was completed as outlined in its permit.

After a thorough review of the permit modification request, the department issued a final Part I Permit Modification for the Safety-Kleen Systems Inc., Springfield facility. The permit modification removes the corrective action conditions associated with the two underground storage tanks, and related groundwater monitoring and reporting requirements.

The final Part I Permit Modification and additional information is available at dnr.mo.gov/env/hwp/permits/mod000669069/information.htm. Some supporting documents are not available on the department’s website due to their size. The public can review and copy the final Part I Permit Modification and supporting documents at the Springfield-Greene County Library District’s Library Station, 2535 N. Kansas Expressway, Springfield, during its normal business hours.
