Title:SOIL TREATMENT STANDARDS AND CONSTITUENTS SUBJECT TO TREATMENT
RCRA Online Number:14628
Date:08/01/2002
To:NA
From:NA
Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: "Constituents subject to treatment" are constituents listed in 268.48 that are reasonably expected to be present in contaminated soil, except fluoride, selenium, sulfides, vanadium, and zinc, in concentrations greater than 10 times the universal treatment standard (UTS). Generators can apply their knowledge instead of monitoring for the entire list of underlying hazardous constituents (UHCs) to determine the constituents subject to treatment (SEE ALSO: 63 FR 28556, 28609; 5/26/98). The treatment standards in 268.40 for listed waste do not require identification or treatment of UHCs. The alternative soil treatment standards in 268.49 require identification and treatment of all UHCs that are reasonably expected to be present in both characteristic and listed soil. The alternative soil treatment standards are not automatically available in all states. If a state adopts the alternative soil treatment standards, then facilities can use either the 268.40 or 268.49 land disposal restrictions (LDR) treatment standards.
