To closely regulate and ensure proper hazardous waste management practices, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requires treatment, storage and disposal facilities to obtain permits to demonstrate compliance with all applicable hazardous waste regulations.
Permits and permit modifications are required to maintain operating status at all of the Laboratory's units that treat, store, and/or dispose of hazardous and mixed waste. LANL has a permit with the New Mexico Environment Department to store or treat hazardous waste at 26 Laboratory sites.
As authorized by the Clean Water Act, LANL's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permits are for monitoring all surface water discharges on Laboratory properties.
