The draft Results-Based Approaches to Corrective Action Guidance is now available for public comment. This guidance is part of the RCRA Cleanup Reforms that EPA announced on July 8, 1999. Tim Fields, in his July 1999 announcement of the Reforms highlighted this guidance as one of the key elements in changing the culture of the RCRA Corrective Action Program. EPA is writing this guidance so that EPA and State regulators and owner/operators will begin to understand and routinely incorporate results-based approaches where appropriate into their cleanups. Results-based approaches are intended to help project managers and owner/operators more efficiently identify releases and risks, and increase the pace of facility cleanup. These approaches encourage technical and administrative innovation to achieve environmentally protective cleanups on a facility-specific basis. Attached is the Guidance and accompanying cover letter in PDF format. Also included is the Federal Register Notice outlining the public comment period and procedures for comment.
