Federal Register Notice: Corrections to Final Rule on Land Disposal Restrictions

On August 17, 1988, EPA published regulations promulgating the congressionally-mandated prohibitions on land disposal of certain hazardous wastes listed in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) section 268.10 (known as the First Third wastes). On May 2, 1989, EPA published a rule amending certain of the "No Land Disposal" standards promulgated in the First Third final rule. This notice corrects errors and clarifies the language in the preamble and regulations of the August 17, 1988 final rule, and makes several corrections required by the May 2, 1989 rule.
