EPA Decision on Marshall Space Flight Center ROD Issued
The 6 January 2012 letter from the EPA Assistant Administrator for Enforcement and Compliance Assurance transmitted the EPA Administrator's decision in a Federal Facility Agreement formal dispute initiated by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) that affirmed the EPA Position issued by the EPA Region 4 Regional Administrator and found the ARARs table developed by EPA and NASA for the OU-12 ROD at the Marshall Space Flight Center had the appropriate level of specificity, and was consistent with CERCLA, the NCP, and EPA guidance. The EPA Position rejected ADEM's assertions that the ROD's ARARs tables should cite broadly to various Alabama statutes and regulations, which would have included administrative provisions and others that were not related to the selected remedy.
