EPA steps into fight over Army's burning of munitions

Associated Press
Saturday November 18th, 2000

The Environmental Protection Agency ordered county officials in 
California on Friday to reopen a permit process to better ensure air 
pollution controls in the burning of munitions at the Sierra Army Depot.

The current permit the Lassen County Air Pollution Control District 
issued in May 1998 fails to assure compliance with several requirements 
of the Clean Air Act, EPA officials said.

"Specifically, the permit must be revised to include missing air 
pollution controls and limits to correct conditions based on inaccurate 
information," said Amy Zimpfer, acting director of the EPA's Air 
Division in San Francisco.

The permit outlining the regulation and monitoring of the activities had 
been set to expire in 2003.

The demand to reopen the permit early comes largely in response to 
health and safety concerns raised by neighboring residents as well as 
tribal communities downwind from the depot, which is located about 55 
miles northwest of Reno near Herlong, Calif., EPA officials said.
