PUREX Storage Tunnels Permit Modification

Hanford Dangerous Waste Sitewide permit

Feb. 12, 2018 - Apr. 12, 2018

The Class 3 Permit Modification Request has been submitted to Ecology, which describes the stabilization action taken for Tunnel 1, actions proposed for stabilizing Tunnel 2 and their relationship for future closure and cleanup actions. The proposed permit modification will include changes to the permit sections covering Preparedness and Prevention, Inspection Requirements, Contingency Plan, Waste Analysis Plan, Process Information, and Closure and Financial Assurance.

  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. For more information see the NWP Public Comment Page.
