TWO EPA INITIATIVES FOR OPTIMIZING RCRA CORRECTIVE ACTION: RCRA FIRST AND A NEW ENVIRONMENTAL INDICATOR

RCRA FIRST greatly streamlines and optimizes the steps within RCRA Corrective Action by initiating optimized communication between the regulators and industry by setting up a Corrective Action Framework (CAF) meeting at the beginning of the Corrective Action phase your site is approaching, such as the investigation or remedy design.  Challenging issues are discussed and decided before any fieldwork or report writing is done, which allows for early mutual understanding and agreement on goals and expectations. 

CA550 OF (the new EPA Environmental indicator) outlines a way to defer remedy construction at an operating facility if the remedy would cause undue interruption of a critical process or destruction of an integral portion of the operating area(s).

If you think that RCRA FIRST or CA550 OF may benefit your facility, join us for a discussion on the requirements and factors for consideration. We will also cover a multi-disciplinary method for doing a strategy review for complex sites.
