Title:CLARIFICATION ON USE OF FATE AND TRANSPORT MODELING DURING RCRA CLOSURE AND PUBLIC PARTICIPATION DURING RCRA CORRECTIVE ACTION
RCRA Online Number:14287
Date:04/17/1997
To:Florini
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Environmental Defense Fund
Description: The Agency allows the appropriate use of fate and transport modeling to demonstrate, under clean closure, that materials contaminated with waste that are not removed do not present unacceptable risks. The use of modeling to make demonstration does not affect the requirements for removal of all wastes (SEE ALSO: RPC# 9/24/96-01). EPA's commitment to public participation is the same whether corrective action is implemented in the context of a RCRA permit or an enforcement order. EPA expects that non-RCRA cleanups will provide an appropriate level of public participation. The public has an opportunity to review and comment on whether it is appropriate for the Agency to defer RCRA corrective action to a non-RCRA program in certain instances.
