Event: Combined Public Meeting for Construction of Basin 41 and a Transfer Line to the 242-A Evaporator
Category: Public Involvement Meetings
Event Date: 5:30 PM
 


Learn About Permit Modifications for Construction of Basin 41 and a Transfer Line to the 242-A Evaporator

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing notice of a 60-day public comment period on a proposed Class 3 modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit. This proposed permit modification would allow construction of a new basin (Basin 41) at the Liquid Effluent Retention Facility (LERF), and provide additional tank and container storage and treatment capacity at the LERF and 200 Area Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF). DOE is also providing notice of a 60-day public comment period on a proposed Class 2 modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit. This proposed permit modification would allow connection of the 242-A Evaporator facility PC-5000 transfer line to Basin 41 at LERF. 

A virtual public meeting will be held Aug. 18 at 5:30 p.m. and will include two separate meetings with brief presentations. The first presentation will introduce the 242-A Evaporator facility modification for connecting the PC-5000 transfer line to Basin 41. The second presentation will introduce the LERF and 200 Area ETF modification for the construction of Basin 41. In response to recommendations made by the public, these two related topics are being combined. You can view the presentation, hear the speakers and ask your questions.
