Site-Wide Water System Upgrade

Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit

July 20, 2021 - Aug. 19, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

Our agency is holding a 30-day public comment period for Notice of Construction (NOC) Approval Order DE19NWP-001, which addresses proposed modifications and new emission units for the site-wide water distribution system.

The permittee is the U.S. Department of Energy.

Review and comment

The modification proposal and supporting documents are on our Hanford public comment periods page.

Proposed changes

The project will add air pollutant emissions from new emergency engines at multiple locations and chlorine disinfection byproducts from a new Central Plateau Water Treatment Facility (CPWTF).  New emission units are six engines, two potable water storage tanks, and wastewater discharge from the CPWTF to existing sludge lagoons.

For more information see the Nuclear Waste Program public comment page.
