Hazardous Waste Corrective Action Strategy in EPA's South Central Region

The EPA South Central Region (Region 6) developed a Corrective Action Strategy (CAS) guideline to accelerate corrective action at RCRA facilities. The overriding goal of the CAS is the protection of human health and the environment.  This document is intended to help regulators and facilities make meaningful progress with corrective action at RCRA sites by:

     1) Prioritizing corrective action at facilities by focusing on sites that pose the most significant risk
     2)  Streamlining corrective action administrative procedures

The CAS is intended to be:

     1)  An interim flexible guide for accelerating corrective action
     2)  A tool for authorized states, facilities, and EPA
     3)  Entirely consistent with national policy, and is intended help accelerate attainment of GPRA goals
     4)  A result of stakeholder input (states, industry, and environmental partners)
