Title:EFFECTS OF LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTIONS PHASE IV TREATMENT STANDARDS ON MANUFACTURED GAS PLANT SITE CLEANUPS
RCRA Online Number:14283
Date:08/21/1998
To:Weissman
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Piper and Marbury LLP
Description: Soil contains hazardous waste when it exhibits a characteristic or when it is contaminated with hazardous constituents from listed hazardous waste. Soil from manufactured gas plants (MGP) that exhibit a characteristic when first generated (i.e., when first removed from the land) remains subject to the land disposal restrictions (LDR) even if it is subsequently decharacterized. Consolidation within an area of contamination (AOC) prior to being removed from the land (i.e., generated) is permissible. A hazardous waste determination can be made after such consolidation. This guidance details the Agency's rules and policies concerning land disposal of decharacterized wastes, including decharacterized soil. When decharacterized soil remains subject to LDR, the soil must be treated in an appropriate unit to meet the treatment standard. Certain tracking, paperwork, and other requirements must also be met.
