Excerpts: Westvaco Corp. v United States Environmental Protection Agency
- Nos. 89-2180; 2181 (899 F.2d 1383) (4th Cir. February 15, 1990)
- This matter is before the court on the motion of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to dismiss consolidated petitions for review filed by Westvaco Corporation (Westvaco) challenging certain agency actions taken by EPA Region III on June 2, 1989.
- Westvaco’s petition for review in No. 89-2180 challenges EPA’s preliminary disapproval of Maryland’s § 304(l) lists and associated ICSs developed by the Maryland Department of the Environment. Westvaco owns and operates a bleached kraft pulp and paper mill in Luke, Maryland.
- Westvaco’s petition for review in No. 89-2181 challenges EPA’s preliminary disapproval of Virginia’s § 304(l) lists and associated ICSs developed by the Virginia Water Control Board. Westvaco owns and operates a bleached kraft pulp and paper mill in Covington, Virginia.
- Westvaco’s petitions for review challenge EPA’s preliminary partial disapprovals of the Maryland and Virginia lists which, it asserts, may affect its Luke and Covington Mills. Specifically, the petitions seek judicial review of EPA’s proposed B and C lists for Maryland and Virginia, and of the associated ICSs that may be promulgated for the Luke Mill and Covington Mill sources.
