Air Quality
1. The organization must develop work instructions for the cold cleaner and post them at the cold cleaner. The cold cleaner must be operated with the top down except when parts are being handled. The cold cleaner top was not in place during this site visit. Employees must be aware of the requirement to keep tops down except when cold cleaners are in use. 2. The organization must contact District MDEQ to determine whether the Rule 290 exemption would be appropriate. The District MDEQ Air Quality personnel make the decision regarding appropriate exemptions. In this situation, the Rule 282 exemption for foundry pots does not apply, as the capacity is greater than 1,000 lbs per pot. The Rule 290 exemption is not often used in this situation, but it the District MDEQ may agree that it could be used in this situation. Only District MDEQ can make this decision.

Furthermore, the organization is required to file an exception report when a completed manifest has not been received within 45 days of shipment. It could not be determined whether an exception report was warranted or if one was completed. 2. Part 121 No generator-copies of the manifest was available for the shipments on 12-18-02. 3. Part 121 The organization is required to send MDEQ the top copy of the manifest within the first 10 days of the month following shipment.

Water Quality
1. The organization needs to redirect the compressor condensate from the storm water system to the sanitary sewer system (provided that the manufacturer cannot support the contention that the treated water is clean enough to discharge). I have seen similar systems at other manufacturing facilities, and this water is normally discharged to the sanitary sewer for treatment. 2. The organization needs to establish and maintain a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure plan to cover oil storage at the facility. 3. The organization needs to establish and maintain a Pollution Incident Prevention Plan (PIPP) to cover polluting material storage at the facility. 4. The organization needs to comply with the storm water permitting requirements, which includes developing a storm water pollution prevention plan, training a Certified Storm Water Operator, and submitting an application to MDEQ to obtain coverage under the Michigan General Permit.

The organization must send MDEQ the top copy of the manifest by the 10th day of the month following shipment. Part 111 Warren is presently recycling the unbroken fluorescent light bulbs. The organization needs to continue recycling the unbroken fluorescent light bulbs, unless the manufacturer can guarantee that the bulbs do not test as hazardous waste due to mercury or lead content. Bulbs are presently labeled as Bad Bulbs. The bulbs need to be labeled as Waste Lamps or Used Lamps or Universal Waste Lamps. Part 111 The broken bulbs are being thrown in the trash. Broken bulbs must be handled as hazardous waste.
