Remington Arms Co. is currently undertaking a RCRA closure program for nine surface impoundments in Lonoke, Arkansas. The impoundments contain a variety of listed hazardous wastes from explosives production and plating processes. The closure program is designed in two phases. This project presents unique challenges for large scale RCRA cleanup. Many options were considered during the engineering evaluation. The solution chosen is consistent with regulatory requirements, controls cost, limits liability, and ensures the protection of human health and the environment (the main criteria for RCRA closure).
