Abstract : The primary authorization for an off-post assessment at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RHA) is the Army's response authority under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA). As delegated by Executive Order 12316, the Army is responsible for determining response measures, consistent with the National Contingency Plan (NCP), deemed necessary to protect public health, welfare, or the environment from releases of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants from Army facilities. This authority includes the responsibility under Section 104(b) of CERCLA to undertake such investigation, monitoring, surveys, testing, and other information gathering as necessary to identify the extent of a release, the source and nature of contamination, and the extent of danger to the public health, welfare, or the environment. Army actions under CERCLA are required to be consistent with the NCP, 40 C. F. R. Part 300, and the Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for implementation of CEROLA. pg 1-1 Arsenal
