Policy Considerations in Listing Sites

Historically, the listing of certain types of sites, although eligible for scoring, has raised policy issues for EPA. These types of sites should be discussed with EPA Regional NPL Coordinators.

  • RCRA Subtitle C treatment, storage, or disposal facilities (HRS Guidance Manual, page 20:
        RCRA Site Policy);

  • Facilities with a current license issued by the NRC;

  • Environmental problems that have resulted from the legal application of pesticides permitted under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act; and

  • Ground water plumes or contaminated surface water sediments where the source is currently unknown. Such sources could, for instance, be subjected to RCRA Subtitle C and deferred to that authority.
