Title: RCRA Facility investigation/corrective measures study work plan for the 100-DR-1 operable unit, Hanford Site, Richland, Washington

Abstract

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) provides for corrective action at solid waste management units located at permitted RCRA facilities, regardless of when waste was received at a unit. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) focuses on waste site cleanups whenever there is a release or substantial threat of a release to the environment of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. High priority sites are placed on a National Priorities List (NPL) by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in accordance with CERCLA. CERCLA requires that federal facilities that qualify be placed on the NPL. The 100 Area of the Hanford Site is one of four Hanford aggregate areas currently proposed for the NPL. This work plan was prepared in accordance with Guidance for Conducting Remedial Investigations and Feasibility Studies Under CERCLA (Interim Final) (EPA 1988a). However, in accordance with the Hanford Federal Facility Agreement and Consent Order, the EPA and State of Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) have determined that the 100-DR-1 operable unit will be addressed under RCRA corrective action authority. The EPA and Ecology have determined that the EPA guidance for conducting a remedial investigation/feasibility study under CERCLA may be used at themore » Hanford Site in the performance of a RCRA facility investigation/corrective measures study. Therefore, although RCRA terminology has been used where appropriate, the content and format of this work plan conform to EPA guidance for CERCLA activities.« less
