Title = Corrective Action Strategy

The EPA Region 6 developed a Corrective Action Strategy (CAS) guideline to accelerate corrective action at RCRA facilities. This document is intended to help regulators and facilities make meaningful progress with corrective action at RCRA sites by: 1) prioritizing corrective action at facilities by focusing on sites that pose the most significant risk, and 2) by streamlining corrective action administrative procedures. The overriding goal of the CAS is the protection of human health and the environment.

The CAS is intended to be:

1) an interim flexible guide for accelerating corrective action
2) a tool for authorized states, facilities, and EPA
3) entirely consistent with national policy, and is intended help accelerate attainment of GPRA goals
4) a result of stakeholder input (states, industry, and environmental partners)

This is the November 2008 version of the CAS. Major changes from the November 2000 version include

  • Updated Policy Guidance
  • Deletion of Bright Line Tables
  • Updated Guidance on Remedy Selection
