(Note if a project spans multiple municipalities -- e.g. a pipeline -- it will show in the count for each municipality.)

The number of facilities also follows the municipality name in brackets.

Municipality counts are based on the way the permit is listed by DEP; DEP has been known to get a municipality wrong.

Locations in brackets identify a precise location used to locate a surrogate for the actual site being permitted (e.g. locating a well pad or pipeline by the known location of a well.) Locations labeled beginning with "~" and ending in "[?]" are approximate and speculative based on inferences using on-line property and lease records.

NOTICES
Pennsylvania's 2016 Annual Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan; Available for Public Comment
[46 Pa.B. 3140]
[Saturday, June 18, 2016]

 On October 17, 2006, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated final amendments to the National ambient air monitoring requirements for criteria pollutants in 40 CFR Parts 53 and 58 (relating to ambient air monitoring reference and equivalent methods; and ambient air quality surveillance). See 71 FR 61236 (October 17, 2006). The EPA's final rule requires state and local agencies to enhance air monitoring to ''improve public health protection and better inform the public about air quality in their communities.'' Under 40 CFR 58.10 (relating to annual monitoring network plan and periodic network assessment), air quality state and local monitoring agencies must adopt an annual air monitoring network plan and make the plan available for public inspection for at least 30 days prior to final submission to the EPA Regional Administrator. The plan, which is due July 1, 2017, must include a statement of purpose for each monitor and evidence that siting and operation of each monitor meets Federal requirements. The EPA may also provide an opportunity for review and comment prior to approving or disapproving a state's monitoring network plan.

 On June 18, 2016, the 2016 Annual Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan (Plan) will be made available for public comment on the Department of Environmental Protection's (Department) web site at www.dep.pa.gov/Business/Air/BAQ/Pages/default.aspx. The Plan has been updated to address changes that have been made in the Commonwealth's ambient air monitoring network and to identify changes that are anticipated to occur in the remainder of 2016 and in 2017.

 The public is invited to submit comments on the Plan. Comments must be received by the Department on or before July 18, 2016. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. Comments, including comments submitted by e-mail, must include the originator's name and address. Commentators are urged to submit com-ments using the Department's online eComment at www.ahs.dep.pa.gov/eComment. Written comments should be submitted by e-mail to ecomment@pa.gov or by mail to the Policy Office, Department of Environmental Protection, Rachel Carson State Office Building, P.O. Box 2063, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2063. Use ''Annual Monitoring Network Plan'' as the subject line.

(1184 McClellandtown Road, McClellandtown, PA 15458), In accordance with 25 Pa. Code  127.424, 127.425 and 127.521, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is providing notice that it intends to issue a renewal Title V Operating Permit (TVOP-26-00402) to Advanced Disposal Services Chestnut Valley Landfill Inc. to authorize the operation of the ''Landfill Waste Gas'' facility located in German Township, Fayette County.

 The facility's air contamination sources consist of one (1) Landfill waste decomposition facility, one (1) Landfill fugitive dust emissions, one (1) crushing/screening/shredding unit rated at 300 tph, and paved/unpaved roadways. Fugitive emissions from ''Landfill Gas Waste'' facility are controlled via an enclosed flare and a candlestick flare. Particulate emissions from the crushers/screens/tire shredding etc. are controlled by a dust suppression system. Emissions from the facility are 66.0 tons CO, 82.0 tons NOx, 92.0 tons PM10, 154.0 tons PM, 12.0 tons VOC, 5.0 tons HAP, and 11.0 tons SOx per year. The facility is subject to the applicable requirements of 25 Pa. Code Chapters 121145 and the applicable requirements of 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOO, 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart WWW (Standard Performance for Nonmetallic Mineral Processing Plants), and 40 CFR, Part 63, Subpart AAAA (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Municipal Solid Waste Landfills). The permit includes emission limitations, and operational, monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements for the facility.

 Advanced Disposal Services Chestnut Valley Landfill Inc. Title V Operating Permit renewal application, the Department's Air Quality Review Memorandum, and the proposed Air Quality State Only Operating Permit for this project are available for review by any interested party at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Southwest Regional Office, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. To request a review of the Title V Operating Permit renewal application, to receive an electronic copy of the Department's Air Quality Review Memorandum, or to receive an electronic copy of the Department's proposed Air Quality State Only Operating Permit for this project, a person may contact Phil Bouse at pbouse@pa.gov or 412.442.4000.

 Any person may submit comments, requests for the Department to hold a public hearing, or protests to the operating permit or a proposed condition thereof, by filing such submissions in writing to the Department at the Southwest Regional Office. A 30-day comment period from the date of this publication will exist for the submission of comments.

 All comments, requests for a public hearing, and protests to a proposed action, shall be filed with the Department within 30 days of the date that notice of the proposed action was published under 25 Pa. Code  127.424 (relating to public notice). Comments, requests for a public hearing, and protests must include the name, address and telephone number of the person filing the protest, identification of the proposed permit issuance being opposed (State Only Operating Permit 26-00402) and a concise statement of the objections to the permit issuance and the relevant facts upon which the objections are based.

 A public hearing may be held in accordance with 25 Pa. Code  127.429, if the Department, in its discretion, decides that such a hearing is warranted based on the information received. If a public hearing is held, all persons who have properly filed a protest under 25 Pa. Code  127.426 may appear and give testimony. The applicant, the protestant and other participants will be notified of the decision to hold a hearing (and the time, place and purpose of such hearing) by publication in the newspaper or by the Pennsylvania Bulletin, or by telephone, where the Department determines such notification by telephone is sufficient.

Notes:

On p. 24 of the 2016 Proposed Annual Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan, in Table 5 it states (excerpt):

Changes Relating to Natural Gas Extraction and Processing Activities in Marcellus Shale Regions
1) Establish new SLAMS multipollutant monitoring site in Fayette County Ozone, NOx and PM2.5, Carbonyls and
VOC. So this tells us what they will be monitoring for, but not where. DEP agreed to add a monitoring site for Fayette County in response to comments received from Fayette Marcellus Watchers.

On p. 24 it states:

Establish New Monitoring Site in Fayette County

As outlined in its 2015 Annual Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan, PA DEP will establish a new ambient air monitoring site in Fayette County, west of Uniontown, PA. This location west of the elevated terrain of the Chestnut Ridge bifurcation should allow for the capture of air quality impacts originating from the western portion of Fayette County, where gas production is concentrated. The current planned equipment configuration includes monitors for ozone, NO2, PM2.5, carbonyls and VOC. Figure 5 displays unconventional gas development in Fayette County between January 2014 and February 2015. PA DEP intends to establish this site by the end of 2016.

---
[Corrected version, 7/10/16 -jr]: It looks as though Chevron is throwing in the towel on almost the entire Stewart Well Pad in Luzerne Twp, with the exception of Stewart 1H. None of the Stewart wells made it into production, and as listed in the previous issue of this bulletin, the Oil & Gas Compliance Report is showing a cement problem for Stewart 2H (included below). We can guess that the cementing problems resulted from interaction with a coal mine, and this is the cause of inactivating all the wells on this pad. (While we have seen numerous cementing problems for Chevron wells in Fayette County, this seems to be the first time we've noted Chevron giving up on an entire well pad due to this issue.)

This raises numerous questions. Why can't Chevron predict this kind of problem? It's not as if Chevron didn't know they were interacting with a coal mine -- all the Stewart wells are permitted as "Coal". Something is clearly wrong here with DEP's ability and/or willingness to oversee the interaction of Marcellus drilling and coal mines -- a problem we are likely to have all over Fayette County. What should be done about this? Why isn't a CBL (Cement Bonding Log, see below) mandatory for every well? As regular readers of this bulletin know, Luzerne Twp has been the focus of most of Chevron's recent activity in Fayette County. Presumably, in this period of low prices for natural gas, one assumes Chevron is using some type of costing model to decide where and when to drill. Now here at Stewart they have what looks like stranded cost for an entire well pad. What does this say about the quality of Chevron's costing model? Too many questions for comfort here ...

DEP defines an environmental justice area as "any census tract where 20 percent or more individuals live in poverty, and/or 30 percent or more of the population is minority". (See:
<http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/pa_environmental_justice_areas/20991>
<http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/dep_enhanced_public_participation_policy/20988>
). There are supposed to be enhanced public participation requirements for permits in environmental justice areas, but news of this actually ever happening is scarce. In Fayette County, the entirety of Springhill, Nicholson, German, and Georges Townships are environmental justice areas, as well as a large part of Dunbar Township. DEP's policy document on public participation guidelines for environmental justice areas is located here:
<http://www.elibrary.dep.state.pa.us/dsweb/Get/Version-48671/012-0501-002.pdf>

eNOTICE records are likely to list the same permit multiple times, as that permit moves through the DEP process.

Oil & Gas Wells designated with a site a number and the letter H typically designate horizontal wells.

Disclaimers:

This compilation from the above sources was done by hand using copy and paste and may omit relevant permits.

Parcel data is provided via the tax records search web page offered by the Fayette County Assessment Office (http://property.co.fayette.pa.us/). Presumed Parcel Id links are subject to availability provided by that agency and associated web sites. Presumed Parcel Ids are determined as the mapped parcel containing a given latitude and longitude, are a best effort determination which is subject to error, and are not official. In cases where a facility is leased and there is a separate parcel id for the lease, if this parcel id is not separately mapped, the parcel id shown will be the id for the enclosing parcel. Parcel owners may be surface owners only and may or may not have any relationship to oil & gas facilities.

Does not currently include water supply permits. Does not include landfill permits even though many such are for Marcellus Shale waste. (It is not possible at this time to distinguish which landfill permits are for Marcellus Shale waste and which are not without doing File Review for each permit.)

Erosion & Sedimentation permit records do not currently include latitude and longitude. Where I am publishing latitude and longitude with E&S permits it is by inferring an associated well permit and using published latitude and longitude for the well. It is possible I may be inferring the wrong well site.

Municipalities are shown from eFACTS records on the DEP web site. The DEP has been known to list a municipality incorrectly.
