Pagination or Media Count:
The Environmental Protection Agency EPA, in consultation with DoD and state officials, developed the Military Munitions Rule MR. After several meetings and proposals, the MR was provided for public comment. The EPA published the final rule with comments in the Federal Register on February 12, 1997. The MR defined military munitions and identified when they become solid waste. The rule also provides for safe storage and transportation of waste military munitions WMM. The MR is a Federal regulation implementing the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, 40 CFR Part 260 et al, and was effective on August 12, 1997. Also amended were existing regulations regarding emergency responses that involve both military and non-military munitions and explosives.
