Public Comment Period and Public Meeting for a Proposed Interim Action Cleanup Plan for the 200-BP-5 and 200-PO-1 Groundwater Operable Units

The Tri-Party Agreement (TPA) agencies – the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) – are holding a 30-day public comment period on a proposed interim action cleanup plan for the 200-BP-5 and 200-PO-1 groundwater operable units in Hanford’s 200 East Area.

The proposed plan addresses areas of the groundwater contaminated with technetium-99 and uranium. The plan presents three alternatives for interim remedial action and identifies a preferred alternative. This interim action will be followed in the future by a final cleanup action for the remaining contamination. Selected remedies and corrective actions for these operable units include institutional controls, including institutional controls related to prohibiting the use of groundwater.

The comment period will run from May 4 to June 8 July 8, 2020. A virtual public meeting will be held June 18, at 5:30 p.m. To participate via GoToWebinar, please follow the instructions below:
