LERF/ETF Class 2 Permit Modification

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 would allow DOE would allow DOE to connect a waste transfer line from EMF to LERF and to make improvements to the 200 Area ETF so that it can support tank waste treatment. The improvements include adding a secondary waste load-out system inside ETF and adding a filter sump tank to the existing load-in station. This requires modification to the permit conditions and applicable addenda. Modifications to the addenda include revised information on the LERF and the 200 Area ETF boundary, the waste analysis plan, facility improvements, container management, leak detection, closure and inspection requirements.
A public meeting will be held October 9, 2019, 5:30 p.m., Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Dr., Richland, Washington  99352.  Please note that this comment form is for the purpose of submitting a comment to the Washington State Department of Ecology.
