Ohio EPA Meeting Set to Discuss Circle K Water Quality Certification Application

Information Session and Public Hearing Scheduled Dec. 7

Ohio EPA will hold a public hearing on Dec. 7, 2022, to discuss a water quality certification application submitted by Circle K in Kingsville. 

An information session will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Ashtabula Public Library, 4335 Park Ave., Ashtabula, immediately followed by a hearing to accept public comments on the water quality certification application.

If the application is approved, discharges cannot violate Ohio EPA’s water quality standards that protect human health and the environment. Proposed impacts to the Conneaut Creek watershed and unnamed tributary would be offset through appropriate mitigation. Ohio EPA will consider technical, economic, social, and environmental aspects of the project before deciding whether to issue or deny the certification.

Anyone may submit comments or request to be on the mailing list for information. To comment or receive information on the permit, write to: Ohio EPA-DSW, Attn: Permits Processing Unit, P.O. Box 1049, Columbus, Ohio 43216-1049 or email epa.dswcomments@epa.ohio.gov. (Include the permit number 3PR00802*AD with each comment or physical page of correspondence.) All comments received at the hearing or by the close of business on Dec. 14 will be considered by Ohio EPA before a final action is taken on this proposal.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1972 to consolidate efforts to protect and improve air quality, water quality and waste management in Ohio. Since then, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling.
