Federal Register Notice: Proposed Land Disposal Restrictions for Newly Identified and Listed Hazardous Wastes and Hazardous Soil

EPA proposed treatment standards for the newly identified organic toxicity characteristic wastes (except those managed in Clean Water Act (CWA) systems, CWA-equivalent systems, or Class I Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) injection wells), and treatment standards for all newly listed coke by-product and chlorotoluene production wastes that must be met before these wastes are land disposed. EPA also proposed to require ignitable characteristic wastes with a high total organic carbon (TOC) content and toxic characteristic pesticide wastes, that are being disposed in Class I nonhazardous waste injection wells, to either be injected into a well that is subject to a no-migration determination, or be treated to meet the land disposal restrictions treatment standards prior to injection.
