On November 15, 1990, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final rule designating three categories of wastes from wood preserving operations as hazardous waste under Subtitle C of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The Senate Committee on Appropriations had directed the Agency to submit by March 15, 1991, a Report regarding the potential advantages, costs, and risks associated with a multistatute approach to regulation of wastes from wood preserving operations. The approach would employ three statutory authorities to control wood preserving wastes in the following manner: (1) Clean Water Act (CWA) - regulation of wastewaters and stormwaters; (2) Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) - regulation of treated wood drippage and the establishment of drip pad management standards; (3) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) - regulation of process residuals. The report is in response to the Committee's directive to look at the advantages, costs, and risks of the multistatute approach. To do so, the elements of the multistatute approach are examined qualitatively in Section One. As part of this examination, a comparison of the multistatute elements to analogous RCRA elements is included at various points. In Section Two of the Report, the costs and risks of the multistatute approach are examined, including a comparison to those of the RCRA Subtitle C approach.
