Request For Public Comment on the Remedial Action Plan for the Corrective Action Management Unit
The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) is requesting public comment on the DRAFT PERMIT (also referred to as Remedial Action Plan – RAP) for the remediation waste landfill located in Henderson, Nevada. The landfill is situated within the boundaries of the common areas of Basic Management Incorporated (BMI) and is restricted to remediation waste (i.e., soil) excavated or generated as a result of prescribed corrective action at this site and adjacent properties. The DRAFT PERMIT authorizes Basic Remediation Company (BRC) to perform post-closure activities related to the landfill containing soils contaminated with hazardous constituents regulated by state and federal regulations in accordance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
The BRC landfill, which includes an engineered liner and cover system, was designed to receive approximately 3.4 million cubic yards of remediation waste. The landfill has been integral to the overall environmental remediation and restoration strategy selected for the BMI Industrial Complex and adjacent properties. The DRAFT PERMIT would grant approval in accordance with RCRA, Federal regulations 40 CFR Part 124, Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 459.000 through 459.600 and Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 444.842 through 444.960 to BRC to continue to operate and then close the remediation landfill. The landfill was closed in 2015 and BRC will continue with post-closure care and maintenance for the facility during the term of this permit.
