This public hearing provides the Department, the regulated community and the public an opportunity to comment and provide information on the proposed addition of Section 17 into Regulation 1138. Section 17 is applicable to prepared feeds (animal feed) manufacturing facilities. The proposed amendment and related information can be viewed on the Departmentâ€™s web site at http://www.awm.delaware.gov/Info/Regs/Pages/Section17.aspx.
The Department is proposing to amend 1138 by adding a new Section 17 that will be applicable to area source prepared feeds manufacturing facilities. This proposed new section is heavily based on a federal rule that the EPA promulgated at 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart DDDDDDD. The purpose of this proposed amendment is to provide increased protection for Delaware citizens against potential adverse health effects linked to a long term inhalation exposure to chromium and manganese compounds. The major health effects from long term inhalation exposure are diseases associated with the respiratory tract (chromium compounds) and central nervous system (manganese compounds).
