Notice of Public Meeting on May 24, 2018, in Sherman, Grayson County, Texas, regarding the Sherman Foundry Proposed State Superfund Site

The executive director (ED) of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or agency) is issuing this notice of intent to delete the Sherman Foundry State Superfund site (the site) from its proposed-for-listing status on the state Superfund registry (registry). The registry is the list of state Superfund sites which may constitute an imminent and substantial endangerment to public health and safety or the environment due to a release or threatened release of hazardous substances into the environment. The ED is proposing this deletion because the ED has determined that due to the removal actions performed, the site no longer presents such an endangerment. This notice was also published in the Herald Democrat newspaper on April 13, 2018.

The site, including all land, structures, appurtenances, and other improvements, is approximately five acres, and is located at 532 East King Street in Sherman, Grayson County, Texas. The site also included any areas where hazardous substances had come to be located as a result, either directly or indirectly, of releases of hazardous substances from the site.

Sherman Foundry operated a cast iron foundry at the site beginning as early as 1947. Hamilton Foundry and Machine Co. purchased the site from Sherman Foundry in 1999 and ceased operations at the site in October 2000 after filing bankruptcy. Inorganic metals released during routine operations at the site are the chemicals of concern (COCs) for the site.

Starting in August 2003, the TCEQ conducted a number of activities to protect human health and the environment, including fence construction, and waste characterization and consolidation. The site was proposed for listing on the registry in the April 7, 2006, issue of the Texas Register (31 TexReg 3082). Further removal actions in 2007 included the excavation and proper disposal of waste contained in an on-site landfill, and the removal and proper disposal of foundry mold sand and slag waste piles. In 2013, the dilapidated foundry building was demolished in order to investigate the soil and groundwater beneath the building. Additional contaminated soils containing COCs above protective concentration levels were removed in 2017.

The site is appropriate for commercial/industrial use according to applicable state risk reduction regulations. Notice has been filed in the real property records in Grayson County that no further remediation is required as long as the property is not used for residential purposes.

As a result of the removal actions performed at the site, the ED has determined that the site no longer presents an imminent and substantial endangerment to public health and safety or the environment. Therefore, the site is eligible for deletion from the registry as provided by 30 TAC §335.344(c).

In accordance with 30 TAC §335.344(b), the TCEQ will hold a public meeting to receive comment on this proposed deletion from the registry. This meeting will not be a contested case hearing within the meaning of Texas Government Code, Chapter 2001. The meeting will be held on May 24, 2018, at 7:00 p.m., in the Sherman City Hall, City Council Chambers, 220 W. Mulberry Street, Sherman, Texas 75090.

All persons desiring to make comments regarding the proposed deletion of the site may do so prior to or at the public meeting. All comments submitted prior to the public meeting must be received by 5:00 p.m. on May 23, 2018, and should be sent in writing to Jillian Simpson, Project Manager, TCEQ, Remediation Division, MC-136, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087, by email to superfnd@tceq.texas.gov, or by facsimile to (512) 239-2450. The public comment period for this action will end at the close of the public meeting on May 24, 2018. Please note that any contact information you provide, including your name, phone number, and physical address will become part of the TCEQ's public record.

The agency has established a site record repository at the Sherman Public Library, 421 N. Travis Street, Sherman, Texas 75090; however, the Sherman Public Library is currently undergoing renovations. The TCEQ has established a temporary repository at the Office of the City Clerk, 220 West Mulberry Street, Sherman, Texas 75090. A portion of the record for the site including documents pertinent to the ED's proposed deletion is temporarily available for review during regular business hours at the Office of the City Clerk. The complete public file may be obtained during regular business hours at the TCEQ's Central File Room, Building E, Room 103, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Austin, Texas 78753, (512) 239-2900. Additional files may be obtained by contacting the TCEQ Project Manager for the site, Jillian Simpson at (512) 239-4848. Fees are charged for photocopying file information. Parking for persons with disabilities is available on the east side of Building D, convenient to access ramps that are between Buildings D and E. Information is also available regarding the site's state Superfund history at https://www.tceq.texas.gov/remediation/superfund/state/sherman.html.

Persons who have special communication or other accommodation needs who are planning to attend the meeting should contact the TCEQ at (800) 633-9363 or (512) 239-3844. Requests should be made as far in advance as possible.

Public Notice - Waiver Amendment of the Medically Dependent Children Program

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is submitting to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) a request to amend the Medically Dependent Children Program (MDCP) waiver, which is implemented under the authority of section 1915(c) of the Social Security Act. CMS has approved this waiver through August 31, 2022. The proposed effective date for this amendment is September 1, 2018, with no changes to cost neutrality.

This amendment request proposes to make the following changes:

- Performance measures in appendices D and G are being revised and data sources are being changed from HHSC Utilization Review unit to managed care organization's (MCOs) self-report.

The MDCP waiver provides home and community-based services to persons under age 21 who are medically fragile and meet the requirements for nursing facility care. Services include respite, adaptive aids, minor home modifications, employment assistance, supported employment, financial management services, transition assistance services, and flexible family support services. Texas uses the MDCP waiver to provide services to Texans in the least restrictive environment possible. These environments include the individual's or a family member's home, or a Child Protective Services foster care home which can meet the individual's complex medical needs.

An individual may obtain a free copy of the proposed waiver amendment, including the MDCP Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) transition plan, or ask questions, obtain additional information, or submit comments regarding this amendment or the MDCP HCBS transition plan by contacting Sallie Allen by U.S. mail, telephone, fax, or email.
