Corrective Action Units

Waste Management Units

[TSD ID#: N/A] Located in Hanford’s 200 East and 200 West areas, this unit consists of several “operable units,” which are areas where waste was disposed that are not subject to regulation as a permitted treatment, storage, or disposal unit. These areas are being cleaned up through the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). Ecology may require more action if the cleanup does not meet state standards.
