The document explains how EPA determines BDAT, selects constituents for regulation, and calculates treatment standards. Section 2 presents waste-specific information--the number and location of facilities affected by the land disposal restrictions, the waste-generating process, and waste characterization data. These data serve as a basis for determining whether a variance from treatment standards may be warranted for a particular type of K073 that is more difficult to treat than the wastes that were analyzed in developing the treatment standards for K073. Section 3 discusses the technologies used to treat the waste (or similar wastes), and Section 4 presents available performance data, including data on which the treatment standards are based. Section 5 explains EPA's determination of BDAT, while Section 6 discusses the selection of constituents to be regulated. The treatment standards are determined in Section 7.
