Title:USE OF SITE-SPECIFIC LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTION TREATABILITY VARIANCES UNDER 40 CFR 268.44(H) DURING CLEANUPS
RCRA Online Number:14078
Date:01/08/1997
To:Regions 1-10
From:Shapiro and Luftig
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: The land disposal restriction (LDR) program requires treatment or placement of waste in no migration unit before placement on land. Discusses treatability variance procedures and minimum requirements for alternative treatment standards (ATT). ATT should consider risk-based cleanup standards. Site-specific treatability variances (SSTV) may be appropriate when the (LDR) treatment standard is unachievable or inappropriate. SSTV may only address some constituents. SSTV is generally appropriate for contaminated soil during corrective action cleanup (SUPERSEDED: see 63 FR 28556; 5/26/98). SSTV approval for soils is delegated to Regions. Discusses SSTV and state authorization. Not all remediation waste is subject to LDR (e.g., LDR not applicable unless waste placed on land before effective date of prohibition). Placement does not occur when hazardous waste is consolidated within a land disposal unit, when waste is treated in-situ, or when the waste is left in place (capped).
