Abstract

During remediation and construction, soil is often managed by the developer, property owner, or contractor. The soil may be regulated by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste regulations. If the movement of soil could result in water pollution or air pollution, there may be an obligation to comply with either federal or State of Iowa regulations intended to minimize such environmental impacts. Federal regulations, 40 CFR part 262.11, states a person who generates a solid waste, as defined in 40 CFR part 261.2, must determine if that waste is a hazardous waste. The contained-in policy is intended to clarify the application of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste regulations to environmental media, such as soil.
