Title:CLEANUP LEVELS FOR LEAD AND CADMIUM IN SOILS FOR CLEAN CLOSURE
RCRA Online Number:13146
Date:03/02/1988
To:Wagoner, Region 7
From:Denit
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: VERIFIED REFERENCE DOSES (RFDS) AND Carcinogenic Potency Factors (CPFs) can be used to set soil cleanup levels during clean closures of surface impoundments, waste piles, and land treatment units. Where no EPA-recommended health-based limit exists for a contaminant, a soil cleanup level may be based on background levels or by data developed by the owner to support a health-based limit. If the cleanup level cannot be established, then clean closure cannot be achieved and the unit (i.e. surface impoundment, waste pile, or land treatment unit) must close as a landfill. Provides guidance for determining the background levels for lead in soil for clean closures of surface impoundments, waste piles, and land treatment units. Discusses how to determine background levels of lead in soil.
