Comment period extended to September 3
The comment period for providing comments or requesting a public hearing for the draft RCRA permit for the U.S. Army Fort Wainwright facility has been extended from August 11 to September 3, 2013. See below for how to comment on the proposed permit


We propose to reissue the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Permit issued to the U.S. Army Fort Wainwright. The draft Permit will allow delayed closure of the one remaining hazardous waste unit, the open burning/open detonation (OB/OD) unit. The draft Permit will also include closure requirements for the OB/OD unit and update provisions for site-wide cleanup at the Fort Wainwright facility.

Once the comment period ends, we will consider any concerns and may hold a public hearing before reaching a final permit decision. Any public hearing will be advertised in the local news media. When we make a final decision to issue, deny, or modify the draft Permit, we will give notice of the decision and a response to the comments to the applicant and to each person who has submitted comments or requested notice of the decision. The final decision will take effect no sooner than 30 days after the notice unless a review is requested.
