Corrective Action Implementation - What You Need to Know

Emily Schaab

Corrective action is a requirement under RCRA for facilities that treat, store or dispose of hazardous wastes. The requirements relate to how facilities investigate and clean up hazardous releases into soil, ground water, surface water and air.

Rather than producing a regulatory framework for corrective action, the EPA developed guidance and policy documents to assist facilities conducting cleanups. Some of the resources are broad in scope, while others are more process or media specific.

Corrective action is mainly implemented through RCRA permits and orders. RCRA permits issued to facilities must include provisions for corrective action as well as financial assurance to cover the costs of implementing those cleanup measures. In additional to EPA, 43 states and territories are authorized to run the Corrective Action program. Corrective action is largely enforced through statutory authorities established by RCRA.
