Public Notice (Abatement Plans)

Epic Midstream Stage 2 Abatement Plan Modification

Notice is hereby given that on October 31, 2016, Epic Midstream, LLC (formerly NuStar Terminals Operations Partnership, L.P.) proposed a Stage 2 Abatement action at their facility located at 6026 U.S. Highway 54 South, approximately five miles south of Alamogordo, New Mexico.  Groundwater in the vicinity of this facility is impacted with separate and dissolved phase hydrocarbons.  The proposed abatement action modification includes the introduction of air into the groundwater (sparging) for a 6-month test period.  Interim action began on November 14, 2016.  This pilot test is being conducted before the end of the public comment period to help determine whether air sparging will be effective in reducing groundwater contaminant concentrations.  If the pilot test is successful, then this modification will become permanent and air sparging will continue as the chosen remediation method for the site.

The Secretary of the NMED will accept written comments on the proposed plan modification, and requests for a public meeting or hearing that include reasons why a public meeting or hearing should be held, if submitted no later than February 6, 2017.
