The current corrective action program has been driven by aspirational goals, announced in May 2004, that were focused on meeting certain cleanup measures by the year 2020. These ambitious and farsighted goals in the early years of implementation of RCRA Corrective Action targeted achieving 95% completion of three important milestones, and the results are impressive. Of the 3,779 Baseline facilities currently of priority for the program, projections are that the program will meet by the end of 2020:

  • Human Exposures Under Control – projected to be met by 96% of facilities
  • Migration of Contaminated Groundwater Under Control – projected to be met by 91% of facilities
  • Remedy Construction – projected to be met by 79% of facilities
