Corrective Action
National Summary
Accidents or other activities at facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous wastes sometimes lead to the release of hazardous waste or hazardous constituents into soil, groundwater, surface water, or air. Owners and operators of such hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) are responsible for cleaning up all nonpermitted releases of hazardous waste at their facilities, regardless of when the release occurred. This remediation process is referred to as corrective action. Cleaning up TSDFs under the RCRA corrective action program may involve the management of contaminated soils, water, debris, and sludges which contain a listed waste or exhibit a characteristic of hazardous waste.
