 Public Comments Wanted: Dept. of Ecology, Dept. of Energy, and more

Comments do not need to be technical in nature, just voice your concerns.

1. Proposed cleanup plan for groundwater and waste sites in Hanford’s 100-D/H Area

  Public Comment period extended through Sept. 16, 2016

 The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) — Tri-Party Agreement (TPA) agencies — request your input on the Proposed Plan for the cleanup of contaminated waste sites and groundwater in the 100-D/H Area, which is located on Hanford’s River Corridor. This cleanup plan is the third of six planned decisions for the River Corridor.

 The plan proposes using a combination of technologies including pumping and treating the groundwater and excavating and disposing of contaminated soil. The Proposed Plan presents cleanup options and identifies the preferred alternative.

 To request a public meeting or for questions, contact Rich Buel, DOE-RL, (509) 376-3375. Richard.buel@rl.doe.gov 

 Please send your comments to Rich Buel, Department of Energy Richland Operations Office, at the following address: U.S Department of Energy Richland Operations Office, P.O. Box 550, MSIN A7-75, Richland, WA 99354

 After the public comment period, a written response to significant comments and a summary of how input affected the cleanup decision will become part of the D/H Area Record of Decision and will be available in the Administrative Record for Hanford. Copies of the Proposed Plan and supporting documentation are available at the Administrative Record, 2440 Stevens Drive, Richland, WA or online at: http://pdw.hanford.gov/arpir/pdf.cfm?accession=0075807H

4. Wanted: Witnesses in a Clean Water Act case

Columbia Riverkeeper is looking for people to be witnesses in a Clean Water Act case to stop pollution.  Witnesses must be people who (1) are concerned about toxic pollution and aquatic life in the Columbia River, and (2) fish, boat, swim, hike, or do other things in or near the Columbia River between the Tri-Cities and Umatilla (or nearby).  If this is you, I'd really like to talk with you about being a witness. 

Being a witness probably won't take much of your time, but it helps Riverkeeper build an air-tight legal case to reduce the amount of toxic pollution a company puts into the Columbia.
If you can help, please email or call Miles Johnson, Clean Water Attorney, Columbia Riverkeeper, 111 Third St. Hood River, OR 97031  miles@columbiariverkeeper.org 541.490.0487.
