The 1996 Land Disposal Program Flexibility Act (LDPFA) amended section 3004(g) of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to exempt decharacterized wastes from provisions of the RCRA land disposal restrictions. Decharacterized nonhazardous wastes are RCRA hazardous wastes whose hazardous characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity have been removed through dilution or other treatment prior to being managed in land-based waste management units. The LDPFA exemption allows decharacterized wastes to be either (1) placed in surface impoundments that are part of wastewater treatment systems whose ultimate discharge is regulated under the Clean Water Act (CWA), or (2) disposed of in Class 1 nonhazardous injection wells regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Congress also mandated in the 1996 LDPFA that a 5-year study be conducted to evaluate any human health or environmental risks posed by the exempted wastes that are managed in these ways and to evaluate the extent to which existing state regulations address any such risks. The Office of Solid Waste (OSW) in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, or the Agency) is conducting this study to assess those exempted wastes placed in surface impoundments and regulated under the Clean Water Act.
