Federal Facility Agreement for the Oak Ridge Reservation

Federal Facility Agreement for the Oak Ridge Reservation

Federal Facility Agreement Governs Oak Ridge Cleanup

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund, requires a legally binding interagency agreement among agencies to establish timetables, procedures, and documentation for cleanup of federal sites on the National Priorities List. In Oak Ridge, this agreement includes DOE, EPA, and TDEC.

The Oak Ridge National Priorities List site covers the areas where contamination exists that pose a risk to the environment or human health. The Federal Facility Agreement governs removal actions, interim cleanup actions, and final cleanup activities. It helps ensure that the environmental impacts associated with past and present activities are thoroughly investigated and that the Department of Energy Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management (DOE OREM) takes appropriate remedial actions or corrective measures to protect human health and the environment.
