OHIO EPA Complaint Dismissal

Austin Master Services has released the recent Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) dismissal report regarding a previously submitted complaint filed by the Concerned Ohio River Residents (CORR).

According to the OEPA dismissal, “the Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC), and Emergency Planning programs have been resolved with no further action required. It appears unlikely that any future violations of the cited rules will occur as Austin Master Services now has been issued an Air permit and submitted required reports. No violations of the Division of Surface Water (DSW) or Division of Materials and Waste Management (DMWM) programs were identified during the investigation. Therefore, the verified complaint is hereby dismissed.”

As part of this process, Austin Master Services received multiple permits to continue operations. The permits included the Permit-to-Install and Operate (PTIO) material handling operations and an Ohio State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) report to record the annual chemical inventory on site. No other oil and gas waste facility similar to Austin Master Services has an OEPA air permit.
