LERF and 200 Area ETF Construction of LERF Basin 41 - 2nd half of the Class 3 permit modification

We are holding a 45-day public comment period on a proposed modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit. The Liquid Effluent Retention Facility (LERF) permit modification is a Class 3 permit modification that will address the construction of LERF Basin 41 to support Direct Feed Low-Activity Waste. The design is similar to the existing three basins.
