Guidance: RCRA Corrective Action Plan

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Corrective Action Plan (CAP) is intended to aid Regions and States in determining and directing the specific work that a permittee/respondent must perform as part of a complete corrective action program. The CAP will assist the Regions and States in developing corrective action requirements in permits under RCRA § 3004(u) and (v) and § 3005(c)(3) (omnibus) and corrective action orders under § 3008(h) and §7003. The CAP provides a framework for developing a site-specific schedule of compliance to be included in a permit or a corrective action order. OSWER Directive No. 9902.3-2A. Issued May 1994.
