Air Operating Permit Emission unit transition to CERCLA for the Plutonium Uranium Extraction Complex
This comment period is for comments on the Air Operation Permit only.
Ecology is holding a 30-day comment period to gather comments regarding the air emission requirements in the EE/CA. The Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis (EE/CA) considers alternatives for removal actions at the Hanford Site’s Plutonium Uranium Extraction (PUREX) Complex located in the 200 East Area of the Hanford Site. The scope of the document includes the PUREX Complex’s 202A building, 202A East Annex, and the 202A West Annex.
Emission units associated with PUREX covered in this EE/CA will be transitioned from the Hanford Air Operating Permit (AOP) to Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) authority once activities begin. This process is specified in the CERCLA transition process detailed in the AOP. The applicable PUREX facility air permits and licenses will be discontinued upon onset of the CERCLA activity in the field.
This public comment period is the first step in transitioning the emission units from the AOP into CERCLA. The full process is detailed in the Hanford AOP, Standard Terms and General Conditions Statement of Basis, Section 4.0.
