Event: Proposed Modifications to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit
Category: Comment Period / Feedback Opportunity
Event Date: 10/16/2013

The U.S. Department of Energy plans to hold a 60-day public comment period on proposed modifications to the Hanford Facility Dangerous Waste Permit.

These Class 2 modifications update several chapters of the 242-A Evaporator portion of the permit.  Key changes include updating:

·         The tank waste sampling approach in the Waste Analysis Plan

·         Process information describing the 242-A Evaporator

·         Preparedness and prevention measures

·         Emergency planning.

These permit modifications are necessary to prepare for 242-A Evaporator campaigns beginning in fall 2013 to reduce the volume of Hanford’s tank waste and make more double-shell tank space available for waste retrieval from other tanks.

Class 2 modifications apply to updates to the permit. All Class 2 Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit changes require public review and Washington State Department of Ecology approval.
