Georgia Environmental Protection seeks comments on hazardous waste permit in Cobb


The state is seeking comments from the public on a hazardous waste permit in Cobb County. Georgia Environmental Protection Division staff will receive public comments through July 25 on the renewal or denial of a hazardous waste permit in Cobb County, near Dobbins Air Force Base. Permit number HW-034(D) was issued to the United States Air Force for Air Force Plant 6, which is operated by the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company at 86 South Cobb Drive, Marietta. Specifically, the draft permit would allow for: the continuing post-closure care of three closed surface impoundments, corrective action of contaminated groundwater, and investigation and subsequent correction action (if needed) of solid waste management units at the facility. The draft permit does not allow for disposal of hazardous waste on-site.
