Title:CLARIFICATION OF RCRA CORRECTIVE ACTION PROGRAM WITH REGARD TO TSD UNITS
RCRA Online Number:14037
Date:02/20/1996
To:Citizen
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: RCRA regulated units (surface impoundments, waste piles, land treatment units, and landfills) are solid waste management units (SWMUs). SWMUs are subject to RCRA corrective action authority (i.e., Sections 3004(u) or 3008(h)). Discusses integrated implementation of corrective action for releases to groundwater and other media from regulated units (SEE ALSO: Section 264.90(f) and 63 FR 56710; 10/22/98)). Dual authority is required when conducting cleanup at a regulated unit in a state authorized for RCRA groundwater requirements but not for corrective action. Changes necessary to comply with a corrective action order are exempt from the reconstruction limit. Closure need not be delayed to perform corrective action. EPA encourages coordination between closure and corrective action activities.
