PUREX Storage Tunnels Permit Modification

Hanford Dangerous Waste Sitewide permit

August 13, 2018 - September 27, 2018

Ecology invites you to review and comment on this proposed permit modification. The proposed permit modifications affect the PUREX Storage Tunnels.The tunnels store waste, mostly large equipment components, from the PUREX Plant and other onsite sources. By completing the response action for Tunnel 1 and the proposed interim closure action for Tunnel 2, the tunnels will continue to safely store the waste. For more information please see the NWP public comment period page. The Sitewide Permit is Ecology’s tool for regulating the treatment, storage, and disposal of dangerous and mixed wastes (containing radioactive and hazardous chemicals) at Hanford. The permit’s purpose is to regulate the cleanup of the Hanford site while protecting people and the environment. The permit sets conditions based on the state’s laws and regulations that control the treatment, storage, and disposal of dangerous wastes.
