Public comment period for proposed permit modification to revise Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit Attachment 8
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is holding a 60-day public comment period on a proposed modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit. This proposed Class 2 permit modification will revise and retitle permit Attachment 8.

A public meeting will be held Feb. 11, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Drive, Richland, WA. If you are unable to attend in person, you can participate via webinar, ID #318-648-835.
