The document supplies guidance to state officials on providing assurances required by Section 104(c)(9) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended ('CERCLA' or 'Superfund'). This section of CERCLA requires states in which remedial actions may be taken to provide assurances, prior to EPA taking or funding such actions, of the availability of hazardous waste treatment or disposal facilities which have adequate capacity to manage the hazardous wastes expected within the state over twenty years. The Guidance Document reflects EPA's current understanding of the statutory requirements and describes how EPA currently suggests that states implement these requirements. The guidance provides substantial information to states, including suggested language for the contracts and cooperative agreements to be signed, instructions on the preparation of state Capacity Assurance Plans (CAPs) that can form a basis for the assurances, and a model for the interstate agreements or regional agreement or authority required when addressing access to capacity in other states.
