The Hanford Long-Term Stewardship (LTS) Program is responsible for the management of the geographic areas where active cleanup has been completed. This management is performed in accordance with the post-cleanup surveillance and maintenance requirements specified in the associated cleanup decision documents. These cleanup decision documents include: the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) records of decision (RODs) and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) corrective action decisions, and post-closure plans.
In addition to managing the post-cleanup completion obligations, the Hanford LTS Program supports Site natural and cultural resource management through the framework of DOE/EIS-0222-F, Final Hanford Comprehensive Land-Use Plan - Environmental Impact Statement (HCP EIS), 64 FR 61615, “Record of Decision: Hanford Comprehensive Land-Use Plan Environmental Impact Statement (HCP EIS),” and in accordance with federal laws, executive orders, Tribal Nations’ treaties, DOE directives, and Hanford Site procedures.
