The waste burned in Unit 1 totaled 1,556,043 pounds, and the waste burned in Unit 4 totaled 2,342,574 pounds. No medical waste was incinerated in these units during this period. There was no use of the bypass stack during the 2015 calendar year. The only data excluded from the Data Acquisition System (DAS) for inclusion in operational data is startup, shutdown, maintenance and calibration data. A Relative Accuracy Test was performed on this Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMs) and was completed on September 9&10, 2015. Steam flow meters were inspected and calibrated, Steam Flow Meters were calibrated during the month of September. During this reporting period, the data acquisition system was operational for 99.9% of the time. Carbon was replaced in the MWC Carbon beds as follows: On June 18, 2015, the #1 carbon bed had both walls empty and filled with new carbon pellets of the same brand and model as the type used during stack testing. The walls were filled with 3,251 pounds of Norit RB40M carbon pellets. On May 21, 2015, the #4 carbon bed had both walls empty and filled with new carbon pellets of the same brand and model as the type used during stack testing. The walls were filled with 3,410 pounds of Norit RB40M carbon pellets. a During this period, 2 incidents were recorded of #1 stack temperature above the limit. The highest occurrence was 159 F, and one at 156 F. The highest recorded temperature occurred on July 9, 2015, at 1600 hrs. The other also occurred in July during periods of high ambient temperatures. b During this period, 23 incidents were recorded of #4 stack temperature above the limit. The highest occurrence was 162 F, all incidents occurred in Jul-Sep during high ambient outside temperatures. Please note that this same parameter was recorded during stack testing as being in excess of the mandatory limit. Maybe this limit could become a surrogate limit that is set by the stack testing parameters? c During this period, 1 incident was recorded of #4 opacity above the limit. This incident occurred on July 24, 2015, and lasted less than 6 minutes at 1018 hrs, while the operator was switching controls from manual to automatic on the flameport air modulator. The next highest recorded opacity for this unit is 7.7 on the Ringlemann scale. d During this period, 1 incident was recorded of CO being over the limit and not attributed to startup or shutdown. On February 11, 2015, the secondary thermocouple failed causing the chamber to overheat and the burner to shut down. The operator made immediate repairs to replace the failed T/C, the CEMs recorded the incident as a high CO event over the 4 hour average from 2000 to 0000 hrs. No other limits were exceeded during this event. §62.15340 What must I include in the annual report?

Summarize data collected for all pollutants and parameters regulated under [Subpart JJJ]. Your summary must include 12 items: Item 12 is: §62.15340 (l) Documentation of periods when all certified chief facility operators and certified shift supervisors are offsite for more than 12 hours. Either a certified chief facility operator or a certified shift supervisor are on-site at all times during charging of incinerators. Notes from 2014 a During this period, 4 incidents were recorded of #4 stack temperature above the limit. The highest occurrence was 159 F, two at 157 F, and one at 156 F. The highest recorded temperature occurred on April 30, 2014, at 2000 hrs. During this 4 hour period the cooling tower pump was shutdown to clean the strainer basket, the absence of the cooling water caused the temperature to rise, because the temperature was already above the limit this was required to restore cooling to the operation. No waste was charged while this was being done. The other three occurred in June during periods of high ambient temperatures. b During this period, 1 incident was recorded of #1 carbon adsorption system differential pressure above the limit. On September 11, 2014, at 1600 hrs, when this reading was recorded, the unit was being stack tested at the time and is exempted from this limit. The unit operated within limits once testing was completed. The next highest reading recorded is 1.3 in WC c During this period, 1 incident was recorded of #4 carbon adsorption system differential pressure above the limit. On March 18, 2014, at 0000 hrs, when this reading was recorded, the unit was in burndown at this time. The unit was operated until the next morning and shutdown for cleaning. The next highest reading recorded is 1.47 in WC d During this period, 1 incident was recorded of #1 opacity above the limit. This incident occurred on December 18, 2014 and lasted less than 6 minutes during the first hour of startup of the equipment (07:54 am), the following 0835 hrs calibration recorded dirty lens alarm and zero was offset by 5.9 %. Cleaned lens and recalibrated COM. The next highest recorded opacity for this unit is 7.8 on the Ringlemann scale. e During this period, 1 incident was recorded of #4 opacity above the limit. This incident occurred on May 22, 2014, and lasted less than 6 minutes at the immediate start up of the equipment (06:42 am). The next highest recorded opacity for this unit is 6.0 on the Ringlemann scale. f During this period, 1 incident was recorded where CO was above the limit. The incident occurred on February 21, 2014, and is reported for the 4 hour average from 16:00 to 20:00. During this time period the steam control valve which feeds the reheater failed and caused the unit to shutdown. Repeated attempts to startup were unsuccessful. Controller was cleaned, and reset and unit was successfully restarted. The operators log shows the unit was down from 17:30 until 19:45, the CEMs counted the entire 4 hours as process on. The unit performed normally after repairs, and no more problems were identified. TECHNICAL EXHIBIT 4 SAMPLE SEMIANNUAL HMIWI REPORT FORT DETRICK HMIWI SEMIANNUAL REPORT 1 July 2015 - 31 December 2015 This report is in transition as the new Title V permit requires additional information to be reported that has not been included in previous versions of this report. This table will contain all required operating parameter data for the first semi-annual portion of the report, the second table contains the history from previous reports to ensure the final report includes a 2 year history of data: Operating Parameters (as established in the most recent stack test) Unit 5 2015 Jul- Dec Highest Max/ Lowest Min Max charge rate (lbs) (3 hr avg) 1000 948 Min amperage to wet scrubber (amps) (3 hr avg) 51.1 52.6 Min scrubber liquor pH (3 hr avg) 6.7 6.6 a Min secondary chamber temp (F) (3 hr avg) 1695 1767 Min flue gas temp rise (T3)-(T1) 15 28 Max Carbon filter outlet temp 176 169 Max reheat outlet temp (T1) (3 hr avg) 161 157 Max post filter differential pressure (3 hr avg).57.1 Max activated carbon adsorption unit differential pressure (3 hr avg) 7.2 1.1 Carbon Monoxide as recorded on the CEMs 40 10.8 Operating Parameters (as established in the most recent stack test) Unit 6 2015 Jul- Dec Highest Max/ Lowest Min Max charge rate (lbs) (3 hr avg) 1000 941 Min amperage to wet scrubber (amps) (3 hr avg) 53 55.3 Min scrubber liquor pH (3 hr avg) 6.7 7.3 Min secondary chamber temp (F) (3 hr avg) 1694 1748 Min flue gas temp rise (T3)-(T1) 15 42 Max Carbon filter outlet temp 176 136 Max reheat outlet temp (T1) (3 hr avg) 165 144 Max post filter differential pressure (3 hr avg).69.2 Max activated carbon adsorption unit differential pressure (3 hr avg) 7.2 1.7 Carbon Monoxide as recorded on the CEMs 40 12.3 a It has been discovered that the pH connection to the CEMs is reading the pH of the Quench tank. This is the first pH correction action in the scrubber process, we are working toward changing the input to the Atomizer which provides a much steadier reading. Because the stack test was performed under these conditions we are keeping the connection as is until just prior to the next test. On 12-28 the CEMs recorded a pH reading of 6.6 for the averaging period of 0900 hrs. The next lowest pH recording was 6.7. The bypass stack was closed at all times during the operation of these incinerators. Inspections, Maintenance, and Repairs Please see attachment for annual inspection form. #6 Unit - the ram box floor was replaced, and the ram replaced with a new ram as part of the carbon bed installation project. The incinerator was restarted on 7-20-2015, during the second day of operation (7-21-2015), the ram became wedged in the firebox and could not be dislodged. The unit was shutdown and the contractor called in to remove the ram and make repairs. It was determined that the contractor had fabrication problems which caused the malfunction. A new ram was fabricated and installed and the unit was restarted successfully on 8-6-2015. The incinerator was out of service for 15 days.

To demonstrate compliance for carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide, see §62.15180. (3) The following includes EPA approved Federal Plan 40 CFR 62 Subpart JJJ Rule Provision Alternatives for §62.15240(a) and (c) for the U.S. Army (Owner/Operator) Fort Detrick Facility. Additionally, condition E(5), Permit to Construct 021-0131- 2-0049 & -0050 issued on January 30, 2009, requires the Permittee to perform the annual stack test for dioxins/furans and mercury in accordance with the following timing requirements: (a) No later than 13 months after the previous stack test, in accordance with §62.15240(b); (b) Within the period 60 days prior to the replacement of the activated carbon in the adsorption system in accordance with alternative requirement §62.15240(c); and (c) Condition (b) above may be waived by the Department if the replacement of activated carbon is deferred beyond the 13 month period in accordance with §62.15145(d). §62.15145 What are the operating practice requirements for my municipal waste combustion unit?... (d) [Revised] Maintain a fixed bed activated carbon adsorption system, consisting of two beds, totaling at least 2,800 pounds of activated carbon. Replace the entire amount of carbon with fresh activated carbon at intervals not to exceed 13 months unless the owner/operator can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Maryland Department of the Environment and EPA Administrator that a lesser replacement rate will not lead to a violation of the emissions standard for either dioxins/furans or mercury §62.15240 What schedule must I follow for the stack testing? (a) Conduct initial stack tests for the pollutants listed in §62.15230 by 180 days after your final compliance date. [Added.] Also, conduct an initial stack test after installation of the rotary atomizer wet scrubber and fix bed carbon filtration system in order to demonstrate compliance with all emission limitations under part 62, subparts JJJ and V. The test shall be completed within 180 days after completion of control equipment installation or by December 31, 2010, whichever date is earlier. (b) Conduct annual stack tests for these pollutants after the initial stack test. Conduct each annual stack test no later than 13 months after the previous stack test. (c) [Added.] Except for the initial performance test with the rotary atomizer wet scrubber and fixed bed carbon adsorption system under paragraph (a), perform the annual stack tests for dioxins/furans and mercury within the period 60 days prior to replacement of the activated carbon in the adsorption system, as required in §62.15145 (d). §62.15245 What test methods must I use to stack test? (a) Follow table 8 of [Subpart JJJ] to establish the sampling location and to determine pollutant concentrations, number of traverse points, individual test methods, and other specific testing requirements for the different pollutants. (b) Make sure that stack tests for all these pollutants consist of at least three test runs, as specified in §60.8 (Performance Tests) of Subpart A of 40 CFR Part 60. Use the average of the pollutant emission concentrations from the three test runs to determine compliance with the applicable emission limits in table 4 of [ Subpart JJJ]. (c) Obtain an oxygen (or carbon dioxide) measurement at the same time as your pollutant measurements to determine diluent gas levels, as specified in §62.15175. (d) Use the equations in §62.15390(a) to calculate emission levels at 7 percent oxygen (or an equivalent carbon dioxide basis), the percent reduction in potential hydrogen chloride emissions, and the reduction efficiency for mercury emissions. See the individual test methods in table 6 of [Subpart JJJ] for other required equations. (e) You can apply to the Administrator for approval under §60.8(b) of Subpart A of 40 CFR Part 60 to: (1) Use a reference method with minor changes in methodology; (2) Use an equivalent method; (3) Use an alternative method the results of which the Administrator has determined are adequate for demonstrating compliance; (4) Waive the requirement for a performance test because you have demonstrated by other means that you are in compliance; or (5) Use a shorter sampling time or smaller sampling volume. §62.15250 May I conduct stack testing less often? (a) You may test less often if you own or operate a Class II municipal waste combustion unit and if all stack tests for a given pollutant over 3 consecutive years show you comply with the emission limit. In this case, you are not required to conduct a stack test for that pollutant for the next 2 years. However, you must conduct another stack test within 36 months of the anniversary date of the third consecutive stack test that shows you comply with the emission limit. Thereafter, you must perform stack tests every third year but no later than 36 months following the previous stack tests. If a stack test shows noncompliance with an emission limit, you must conduct annual stack tests for that pollutant until all stack tests over 3 consecutive years show compliance with the emission limit for that pollutant. This provision applies to all pollutants subject to stack testing requirements: dioxins/furans, cadmium, lead, mercury, particulate matter, opacity, hydrogen chloride, and fugitive ash. (b) You can test less often for dioxins/furans emissions if you own or operate a municipal waste combustion plant that meets two conditions. First, you have multiple municipal waste combustion units onsite that are subject to this subpart. Second, all these municipal waste combustion units have demonstrated levels of dioxins/furans emissions less than or equal to 30 nanograms per dry standard cubic meter (total mass) for Class II units, for 2 consecutive years. In this case, you may choose to conduct annual stack tests on only one municipal waste combustion unit per year at your plant. This provision only applies to stack testing for dioxins/furans emissions. (1) Conduct the stack test no more than 13 months following a stack test on any municipal waste combustion unit subject to this subpart at your plant. Each year, test a different municipal waste combustion unit subject to this subpart and test all municipal waste combustion units subject to this subpart in a sequence that you determine. Once you determine a testing sequence, it must not be changed without approval by the Administrator. (2) If each annual stack test shows levels of dioxins/furans emissions less than or equal to... 30 nanograms per dry standard cubic meter (total mass) for Class II units, you may continue stack tests on only one municipal waste combustion unit subject to this subpart per year. (3) If any annual stack test indicates levels of dioxins/furans emissions greater than... 30 nanograms per dry standard cubic meter (total mass) for Class II units, conduct subsequent annual stack tests on all municipal waste combustion units subject to this subpart at your plant. You may return to testing one municipal waste combustion unit subject to this subpart per year if you can demonstrate dioxins/furans emission levels less than or equal to... 30 nanograms per dry standard cubic meter (total mass) for Class II units, for all municipal waste combustion units at your plant subject to this subpart for 2 consecutive years. §62.15255 May I deviate from the 13-month testing schedule if unforeseen circumstances arise? You may not deviate from the 13-month testing schedules specified in §§ 62.15240(b) and 62.15250(b)(1) unless you apply to the Administrator for an alternative schedule, and the Administrator approves your request for alternate scheduling prior to the date on which you would otherwise have been required to conduct the next stack test.

(e) Use tests conducted according to EPA Reference Method 9, as specified in § 62.15245, to determine compliance with the applicable opacity limit in table... 4 of [ Subpart JJJ] The data obtained from your continuous opacity monitoring system are not used to determine compliance with the opacity limit. B. Particulate Matter Emissions Same as A. above. C. - E. Carbon Monoxide and Sulfur Dioxide Emissions. (1) The Permittee shall use any of the quality assurance procedures specified in Appendix F to test the CEMs once each calendar quarter. The Permittee shall have a Relative Accuracy Test Audit (RATA), in accordance with Appendix F of 40 CFR Part 60 performed on each CEM at least once per calendar year [Authority: §60.13 of Subpart A of 40 CFR Part 60]. (2) By December 31, 2009, the Permittee shall install and commence continuous operation CEMS for carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and oxygen meeting 40 CFR Part 62, Subpart JJJ requirements stated in §§62.15170 through 62.15225 [Authority: Permit to Construct 021-0131- 2-0049 & -0050 issued on January 30, 2009] (3) By June 30, 2010, the Permittee must complete an initial evaluation of each CEM meeting the requirements of §62.15175(b), §§62.15185 through 62.15200 [Authority: §62.15170 - 62.15225, 40 CFR Part 62, Subpart JJJ and Permit to Construct 021-0131- 2-0049 & -0050 issued on January 30, 2009]. §62.15170 What types of continuous emission monitoring must I perform? To continuously monitor emissions, you must perform four tasks: (a) Install continuous emission monitoring systems for certain gaseous pollutants. (b) Make sure your continuous emission monitoring systems are operating correctly. (c) Make sure you obtain the minimum amount of monitoring data. §62.15175 What continuous emission monitoring systems must I install for gaseous pollutants? (a) You must install, calibrate, maintain, and operate continuous emission monitoring systems for oxygen (or carbon dioxide), sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide.... Install the continuous emission monitoring system for sulfur dioxide,... and oxygen (or carbon dioxide) at the outlet of the air pollution control device. (b) You must install, evaluate, and operate each continuous emission monitoring system according to the "Monitoring Requirements" in §60.13 of Subpart A of 40 CFR Part 60. (c) You must monitor the oxygen (or carbon dioxide) concentration at each location where you monitor sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide.... (d) You may choose to monitor carbon dioxide instead of oxygen as a diluent gas. If you choose to monitor carbon dioxide, then an oxygen monitor is not required and you must follow the requirements in §62.15200. (e) If you choose to demonstrate compliance by monitoring the percent reduction of sulfur dioxide, you must also install a continuous emission monitoring system for sulfur dioxide and oxygen (or carbon dioxide) at the inlet of the air pollution control device. (f) If you prefer to use an alternative sulfur dioxide monitoring method, such as parametric monitoring, or cannot monitor emissions at the inlet of the air pollution control device to determine percent reduction, you can apply to the Administrator for approval to use an alternative monitoring method under § 60.13(i) of Subpart A of 40 CFR Part 60. §62.15180 How are the data from the continuous emission monitoring systems used? You must use data from the continuous emission monitoring systems for sulfur dioxide,... and carbon monoxide to demonstrate continuous compliance with the applicable emission limits specified in Tables...4 and 5 of [Subpart JJJ]. §62.15185 How do I make sure my continuous emission monitoring systems are operating correctly? (a) Conduct initial, daily, quarterly, and annual evaluations of your continuous emission monitoring systems that measure oxygen (or carbon dioxide), sulfur dioxide,... and carbon monoxide. (b) Complete your initial evaluation of the continuous emission monitoring systems within 180 days after your final compliance date. (c) For initial and annual evaluations, collect data concurrently (or within 30 to 60 minutes) using your oxygen (or carbon dioxide) continuous emission monitoring system, your sulfur dioxide,... or carbon monoxide continuous emission monitoring systems, as appropriate, and the appropriate test methods specified in table 6 of [Subpart JJJ]. Collect these data during each initial and annual evaluation of your continuous emission monitoring systems following the applicable performance specifications in Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 60. Table 7 of [Subpart JJJ] shows the performance specifications that apply to each continuous emission monitoring system. (d) Follow the quality assurance procedures in Procedure 1 of Appendix F of 40 CFR Part 60 for each continuous emission monitoring system. These procedures include daily calibration drift and quarterly accuracy determinations. §62.15190 Am I exempt from any 40 CFR Part 60 Appendix B or Appendix F requirements to evaluate continuous emission monitoring systems? Yes, the accuracy tests for your sulfur dioxide continuous emission monitoring system require you to also evaluate your oxygen (or carbon dioxide) continuous emission monitoring system. Therefore, your oxygen (or carbon dioxide) continuous emission monitoring system is exempt from two requirements: (a) Section 2.3 of Performance Specification 3 in Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 60 (relative accuracy requirement). (b) Section 5.1.1 of Appendix F of 40 CFR Part 60 (relative accuracy test audit). §62.15195 What is my schedule for evaluating continuous emission monitoring systems? (a) Conduct annual evaluations of your continuous emission monitoring systems no more than 13 months after the previous evaluation was conducted. (b) Evaluate your continuous emission monitoring systems daily and quarterly as specified in Appendix F of 40 CFR Part 60. §62.15200 What must I do if I choose to monitor carbon dioxide instead of oxygen as a diluent gas? You must establish the relationship between oxygen and carbon dioxide during the initial evaluation of your continuous emission monitoring system. You may reestablish the relationship during annual evaluations. To establish the relationship use three procedures: (a) Use EPA Reference Method 3A or 3B in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 60 to determine oxygen concentration at the location of your carbon dioxide monitor. (b) Conduct at least three test runs for oxygen. Make sure each test run represents a 1-hour average and that sampling continues for at least 30 minutes in each hour. (c) Use the fuel-factor equation in EPA Reference Method 3B to determine the relationship between oxygen and carbon dioxide. §62.15205 What minimum amount of monitoring data must I collect with my continuous emission monitoring systems and is this requirement enforceable? (a) Where continuous emission monitoring systems are required, obtain 1-hour arithmetic averages. Make sure the averages for sulfur dioxide,... and carbon monoxide are in parts per million by dry volume at 7 percent oxygen (or the equivalent carbon dioxide level). Use the 1-hour averages of oxygen (or carbon dioxide) data from your continuous emission monitoring system to determine the actual oxygen (or carbon dioxide) level and to calculate emissions at 7 percent oxygen (or the equivalent carbon dioxide level). (b) Obtain at least two data points per hour in order to calculate a valid 1-hour arithmetic average. Section 60.13(e)(2) of Subpart A of 40 CFR Part 60 requires your continuous emission monitoring systems to complete at least one cycle of operation (sampling, analyzing, and data recording) for each 15-minute period. (c) Obtain valid 1-hour averages for 75 percent of the operating hours per day for 90 percent of the operating days per calendar quarter. An operating day is any day the unit combusts any municipal solid waste or refuse-derived fuel. (d) If you do not obtain the minimum data required in paragraphs (a) through (c) of this section, you are in violation of this data collection requirement regardless of the emission level monitored, and you must notify the Administrator according to §62.15340(e). (e) If you do not obtain the minimum data required in paragraphs (a) through (c) of this section, you must still use all valid data from the continuous emission monitoring systems in calculating emission concentrations and percent reductions in accordance with §62.15210. §62.15210 How do I convert my 1-hour arithmetic averages into appropriate averaging times and units? (a) Use the equation in §62.15390(a) to calculate emissions at 7 percent oxygen. C7% = Cunc * 13.9/(20.9 - CO2) C7% = concentration corrected to 7 percent oxygen. Cunc = uncorrected pollutant concentration CO2 = %O2 (b) Use EPA Reference Method 19 in Appendix A of 40 CFR Part 60, section 4.3, to calculate the daily geometric average concentrations of sulfur dioxide emissions. If you are monitoring the percent reduction of sulfur dioxide, use EPA Reference Method 19, section 5.4, to determine the daily geometric average percent reduction of potential sulfur dioxide emissions. (c) (not applicable). (d) Use EPA Reference Method 19, section 4.1, to calculate the 4-hour daily block averages for concentrations of carbon monoxide. §62.15220 What additional requirements must I meet for the operation of my continuous emission monitoring systems ? Use the required span values and applicable performance specifications in Table 7 of [Subpart JJJ] §62.15225 What must I do if my continuous emission monitoring system is temporarily unavailable to meet the data collection requirements? Refer to Table 7 of [Subpart JJJ]. It shows alternate methods for collecting data when these systems malfunction or when repairs, calibration checks, or zero and span checks keep you from collecting the minimum amount of data. F. - G.
