The U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) has initiated the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) five-year review at the Hanford Site.The first five-year review was conducted in 2000 by the EPA.

CERCLA requires that for all remedial actions taken that resulted in hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants remaining at a site above levels that allow for unlimited use and unrestricted exposure, the lead agency review actions no less often than every five years after the initiation of the selected remedial action. The review will determine if the measures taken are still successful in protecting the worker, the public and the environment.

DOE will conduct the CERCLA five-year review in coordination with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. EPA is ultimately responsible for certifying the review.

DOE requests public input on the evaluations of the remedial actions identified in the report. A 30-day public review period will be held May 8 through June 15, 2006. Public input will be considered before the report is finalized.
