Long-Term Management and Storage of Elemental Mercury

DOE proposes to construct one or more new facilities and/or select one or more existing facilities (including modification as needed) for the long-term management and storage of mercury, as mandated by Section 5 of the Act. Any such facility must comply with applicable requirements of Section 5 of the Act, “Management Standards for a Facility,” including the requirements of the Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) (42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.) and other permitting requirements.
