A 'no migration' variance is a formal decision that can be rendered by the EPA to allow the land disposal of specific, prohibited wastes not meeting the treatment standards established by EPA at a particular facility. In 1986, Congress passed the RCRA authorizing EPA to establish nationwide standards for the management of hazardous wastes. Under HSWA, RCRA Sections 3004(d), (e), and (g) were to include provisions prohibiting the land disposal of all such 'listed' and 'characteristically hazardous' wastes unless they are first treated. Wastes included in the EPA's land disposal prohibitions will have to be treated by best demonstrated technology to meet the treatment standard established by EPA, unless a 'no migration' variance is obtained.
