Modification of the 200-Area ETF Delisting

The Washington State Department of Ecology and the Environmental Protection Agency Region 10 are providing notification of a 30-day public comment period starting June 7, 2021. This comment period will address targeted technical changes to the existing delisting to support startup of the Direct Feed low Activity Waste (DFLAW) configuration of the Waste Treatment Plant (WTP). The Hanford Site is located in southeastern Washington.  

The proposed changes relate to addition of a new waste treatment process (steam stripping) to the 200-Area Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF) to accommodate the expected level of certain constituents in liquid effluent from the WTP Effluent Management System.

EPA and Ecology will be making separate but coordinated decisions regarding this action under their respective regulatory authorities
