05/29/2014
Case Number:UIC Appeal Nos. 14-01, 14-02, 14-03
ELR Citation:47 ELR 41373

This matter involves three consolidated petitions for review of an Underground Injection Control (“UIC”) permit that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 3 (“Region”) issued to Seneca Resources Corporation for a Class II injection well (“Permit”) on January 28, 2014. In its consolidated response to the petitions, the Region challenged each petition on threshold procedural grounds.

Held: The Board denies Ms. Susan Swanson’s petition for review because it lacks the specificity required under 40 C.F.R. § 124.19(a)(4), denies Highland Township’s petition as untimely, and denies Ms. Judith Hudson’s petition for lack of standing
