Abstract:

The primary authorization for an off-post assessment at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal RHA is the Armys 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 104b 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
