Hazardous Waste Disposal Problems at Government Federal Facilities, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Transportation and Commerce of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, Ninety-Sixth Congress, Second Session, November 20, 1980   [open pdf - 85MB]

This is the November 20, 1980 hearing on "Hazardous Waste Disposal Problems at Government Federal Facilities," held before the Subcommittee on Transportation and Commerce of the U.S. House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the opening statement of James J. Florio: "Documents obtained by the subcommittee indicate that the Department of the Navy alone has 79 installations where there are potential hazardous waste disposal problems resulting from past dumping operations. These problems may not be confined to the boundaries, and most probably are not confined to the boundaries of the particular military establishment since contaminants in the ground water migrate from Federal property to private. I am concerned about the actions that Government agencies are taking to correct past toxic waste disposal problems at their facilities and the steps that are being taken to prevent hazardous waste disposal problems now and in the future, and to explore the interconnection between the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act regulations which are now going into effect and Federal practices and proposed Federal practices." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Paul Doyle, Gerard Healy, William J. Hughes, Robert Kline, Doug MacMillan, George Marienthal, Anne Miller, Benjamin Montoya, Keith Onselorff, Steven J. Picco, Steffan W. Plehn, and Charles Warren.
