Title: Superfund Record of Decision (EPA Region 10): Hanford 200 Area (USDOE), (200-UP-1 Operable Unit), Benton County, WA, February 11, 1997

Abstract

This decision document presents the selected Interim Remedial Action (IRA) for the US Department of Energy (US DOE) Hanford 200-UP-1 Operable Unit (OU), 200 Area, Hanford Site, Benton County, Washington. The selected remedy consists of pumping the highest concentration zone of the contaminated groundwater plume at 200-UP-1 and treatment using the existing Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF) located in the 200 East Area. The selected remedy is intended to reduce contaminant mass within the plume and minimize migration of uranium and technetium-99 from the 200 West Area. The selected remedy will remove and treat these two contaminants of concern, in addition to the specific co-contaminants of nitrate and carbon tetrachloride which exist within the groundwater.

  • This decision document changes components of the selected interim remedial action for the Hanford 100 Area radioactive liquid effluent disposal sites and clarifies the roles of revegetation or remediated sites with respect to the completion of the remedial actions. This amendment increases the scope of the selected remedy to include 34 additional sites in the 100 Area that received similar waste discharges and reduces the overall estimated cost for the remedial action to $194 million for 71 sites. This amendment also recognizes the results of the soil volume reduction treatability studies that indicate soil washing for volume reduction is notmore » cost effective. Therefore, this treatment step will no longer be retained as an option for the 100 Area radioactive liquid effluent disposal sites. This amendment also clarifies that revegetation of remediated wastes sites will be addressed using the guidance provided in the current Mitigation Action Plan.« less
  • The decision document presents the selected remedial action for the USDOE Hanford Site Environmental Restoration Disposal Facility (ERDF), Hanford Site, Benton County, Washington. The ROD addresses the disposal of radioactive, hazardous/dangerous, asbestos, PCB, and mixed wastes resulting from the remediation of operable units within the 100, 200, and 300 Area National Priorities List (NPL) sites of the Hanford Site. The ERDF will minimize migration of contaminants from waste, primarily soils and debris, placed in the facility.
  • The decision document presents the selected interim remedial measure (IRM) for the USDOE Hanford 200-ZP-1 operable unit, 200 Area, Hanford Site, Benton County, Washington. The selected remedy uses groundwater pump and treat and is intended to minimize further migration of carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, and trichloroethylene (TCE) in the groundwater of the 200 West Area. To do this, the IRM is designed to stabilize and reduce contaminant mass in the high concentration portion of the plume. The high concentration portion of the plume corresponds to the area within the 2000 - 3000 parts per billion (ppb) contour of carbon tetrachloride.
  • This decision document presents the selected action for portions of the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) Hanford 100 Area, Hanford Site, Benton County, WA. The selected action addresses waste sites identified in the 100-IU-1, 100-IU-3, 100-IU-4, and 100-IU-5 Operable Units. These four operable units occupy portions of Benton, Franklin, and Grant Counties, WA. This decision is based on the Administrative Record for the 100 Area and for the specific operable units. No further action is required at the 100-IU-1, 100-IU-3, 100-IU-4, and 100-IU-5 Operable Units; however, USDOE commits to the development and implementation of a Mitigation Action Plan in coordinationmore » with the Natural Resource Trustees for any additional required mitigation measures.« less
  • This decision document presents the selected interim remedial actions for portions of the USDOE Hanford 100 Area, Hanford Site, Benton County, Washington. The selected remedy is an interim action that involves removing hexavalent chromium from groundwater that discharges into the Columbia River. To intercept the chromium plumes, groundwater will be pumped from approximately 30 wells located along and inland from the river shoreline. The water will then be treated using an ion exchange treatment technology to remove chromium. The treated effluent will then be returned to the aquifer using injection wells located upgradient of the existing chromium plumes. The interimmore » action includes monitoring of the groundwater near the river and the effluent from the treatment system to determine system performance in meeting the remedial action objectives for protection of the Columbia River. The interim action also involves institutional controls to protect human health from groundwater contaminants.« less
