Class 2 permit modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit,

The U.S. Department of Energy is holding a 60-day public comment period on a proposed permit modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit, “Liquid Effluent Retention Facility and 200 East Area Effluent Treatment Facility” chapter. This proposed permit modification is necessary to add an Acetonitrile Distillate Loadout Facility, acetonitrile distillate tote storage, acetonitrile distillate storage tanks, and brine storage tanks to the 200 Area Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF). These new dangerous-waste management units are necessary to support waste management operations resulting from the receipt of liquid effluent from Hanford’s Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant.
