Cover Memorandum -- OSWER policy -- Sample Memorandum of Understanding. "This memorandum presents the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response's (OSWER) policy on placement of hardrock mine waste in joint repositories at mixed-ownership, abandoned hardrock mine sites and mining-impacted watersheds. The policy was developed in collaboration with other federal agencies as part of OSWER's One Cleanup Program initiative. The Regions are encouraged to use the criteria described in this policy memorandum and sample Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) to work with Federal Land Managers (FLM) (e.g. Department of the Interior - Bureau of Land Management and US Department of Agriculture - Forest Service) ..." -- Cover Memorandum, Thomas Dunne, Deputy Assistance Administrator.
