The U.S. Department of Energy 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 is required to expand the existing 2025ED Load-In Station, construct the 2025EG Backup Load-In Station container storage and treatment area, and remove two unused tanks at the 2025ED Load-In Station, all of which are within the permit boundary.
The comment period is from Dec. 15, 2020, through Feb. 13, 2021. A virtual public meeting will be held Jan. 21, 2021, at 5:30 p.m. PT. To participate via GoToWebinar, please follow the instructions below:
