Public Comment Period and Virtual Meeting on a Class 2 Permit Modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit, Addendum D, “Groundwater Monitoring Plan.”

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is holding a 60-day public comment period on a proposed Class 2 permit modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit, “Liquid Effluent Retention Facility and 200 Area Effluent Treatment Facility” chapter. This proposed permit modification will update Addendum D, “Groundwater Monitoring Plan.”

The Liquid Effluent Retention Facility and 200 Area Effluent Treatment Facility are mixed-waste treatment and storage units for treating liquid effluents from operating Hanford cleanup facilities. These facilities include the 242-A Evaporator and the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant’s Effluent Management Facility (when it becomes operational) to support treating tank waste using the Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste approach. 

The comment period runs from March 29 through May 28. A virtual public meeting will be held April 26 at 5:30 p.m. PT. To participate via Microsoft Teams, please follow the instructions below:
