Deferral of Phase IV Standards for PCBs as an Underlying Hazardous Constituent in Soil; Proposed Rule, February 16, 2000EPA proposed to temporarily defer the requirement that polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) be considered an underlying hazardous constituent when they are present in soils that exhibit the toxicity characteristic for metals. EPA proposed this action because the existing regulation appears to discourage remediation of certain contaminated soils, contrary to EPA's intent in promulgating alternative treatment standards for contaminated soils.
