Part of: Environmental Engineering


The author discusses the impact of the proposed National Contingency Plan revisions of February 1985, which require that remedies under Superfund must attain or exceed applicable or relevant Federal public health and environmental standards, including those imposed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976. The purpose of this paper is to examine the implications of CERCLA (the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980) and RCRA, particularly as they apply to the development of remedial action programs at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
