Underground Injection Control Program; Hazardous Waste Injection 
Restrictions; Petition for Exemption--Class I Hazardous Waste 
Injection--BASF Corporation (BASF)

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of final decision on petition.


SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that an exemption to the land disposal 
restrictions under the 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments to the 
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act has been granted to BASF, for 
the Class I injection wells located at Freeport, Texas. As required by 
40 CFR Part 148, the company has adequately demonstrated to the 
satisfaction of the Environmental Protection Agency by petition and 
supporting documentation that, to a reasonable degree of certainty, 
there will be no migration of hazardous constituents from the injection 
zone for as long as the waste remains hazardous. This final decision 
allows BASF, to inject specific restricted hazardous wastes identified 
in the exemption, into the Class I hazardous waste injection wells at 
the Freeport, Texas facility, for as long as the basis for granting an 
approval of this exemption remains valid, under provisions of 40 CFR 
148.24. As required by 40 CFR 124.10, a public notice was issued June 
22, 1995. The public comment period ended on August 7, 1995. No 
comments were received. This decision constitutes final Agency action 
and there is no Administrative appeal.

DATES: This action is effective as of August 17, 1995.
