LERF/ETF Load-In Station Expansion/ Backup Load-In Facility Class 2 Modification
The U.S. Department of Energy is holding a 60-day public comment period on a proposed Class 2 permit modification to the Hanford Dangerous Waste Permit, involving the Liquid Effluent Retention Facility (LERF) and the 200 Area Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF) at the Hanford Site.
This proposed permit modification is required to expand the existing 2025ED Load-In Station, construct the 2025EG Backup Load-In Station container storage and treatment area, and remove two unused tanks at the 2025ED Load-In Station, all of which are within the permit boundary.
The Load-In Station will be modified to include:
Extending the building footprint to the north sufficient to fit a large tanker
Reworking the concrete floor in the east bay to meet the applicable secondary containment requirements to allow for unloading of large tankers
Upgrading or replacing load in equipment (HVAC, safety shower, fire protection, etc.)
Removal of the abandoned Tanks 59A 109 and 117, and covering the outdoor sump
Designing and implementing a backup Load In Station to be utilized when the facility is out of service.
