About the Book
This updated edition of The RCRA Practice Manual is a comprehensive yet easy-to-use guide to an extraordinarily complex area of environmental law. This practice-oriented book focuses on the "cradle-to-grave" program for managing hazardous wastes under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The RCRA program regulates the handling of these wastes by generators, transporters and treatment, storage and disposal facilities, and regulates a large segment of industry involved in manufacturing.
The chapters in The RCRA Practice Manual are written by an impressive roster of environmental lawyers who practice extensively in this area. The guide clearly explains this dynamic law, its background, regulatory structure and procedures, and the implications RCRA has for your client or company. The authors offer practical suggestions and guidance that are essential to minimize the risk of penalty and to soften the blow when liability cannot be avoided.
Every chapter has been updated to include the numerous judicial and regulatory developments since the first edition, including issues such as EPA over-filing, imminent and substantial endangerment, citizen suits, and recent EPA determinations, draft and final guidances, amendments, and reform programs.
The manual's authoritative and practice-focused information is structured along these critical aspects of the program:
An overview of RCRA and its relationship to other laws
The scope of hazardous waste
Generators and transporters
Treatment, storage, and disposal
Land disposal and corrective action
Underground storage tanks and nonhazardous waste
Enforcement and implementation
The RCRA Practice Manual includes tables of authorities, cases, statutes and regulations, and a comprehensive index.
