ASTSWMO’s State Federal Coordination Focus Group hosted a webinar on CERCLA/RCRA integration at federal facilities. This webinar is a two-hour session which aims to build upon the current CERCLA/RCRA integration course offered by the EPA on CLU-IN.
The webinar is broken into four sections designed to educate Waste Management officials at varying levels of experience. The topics cover:
– Creation RCRA & CERCLA
– RCRA vs. CERCLA: Legal Framework Breakdown
– State Perspective on RCRA/CERCLA Integration
– Question and Answer Session
The following webinar presents EPA OECA’s position on RCRA/CERCLA Integration.
The Federal Facilities Subcommittee’s Remediation & Reuse Focus Group developed this paper to address the ASTSWMO members’ concerns with the identification of and federal agency acceptance of State applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements (ARARs) in CERCLA federal facility cleanups. The Focus Group reviewed statutory requirements and policies, guidance, and decisions documents from EPA and other federal agencies to summarize when and how State ARARs are identified throughout the CERCLA process for both removal and remedial actions. The paper also includes a resource table and flow chart for identifying, considering, and selecting ARARs, short case summaries and site examples, recommendations, and a list of resources to assist States.
