The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) are holding a 60-day public comment period on a proposed modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit. This proposed Class 2 permit modification would allow DOE to connect a backup waste transfer line from the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant Effluent Management Facility to an existing transfer line between the 242-A Evaporator and the Liquid Effluent Retention Facility. This would allow transfer of effluent waste from the Effluent Management Facility to the Liquid Effluent Retention Facility.
The comment period is from July 18 to Sept. 16, 2019.
A public meeting will be held Aug. 27 at 5:30 p.m. at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Drive. Richland, Washington 99352. If you are unable to attend in person, you can participate via webinar, ID# 979-927-587.
Electronic access to the proposed permit modification and supporting documentation is available at the Hanford Administrative Record Public Information Repository located at 2440 Stevens Drive, Richland, Washington, the Hanford Public Information Repositories, the Hanford.gov events calendar, and the DOE Administrative Records website. Please see the attached summary fact sheet.
