Abstract : In 1980, Congress enacted the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. Section 9601 et seq., establishing the Superfund program to address remediation of NPL sites. The regulations adopted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) that implement this program are found in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 300, also known as the National Contingency Plan (NCP). CERCLA was amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986 which mandated that the level or standard of control specified in a remedial action at NPL sites for the site-specific pollutants be 'at least that of any applicable or relevant and appropriate (ARAR) standard, requirement, criteria, or limitation under any federal environmental law, or any more stringent standard, requirement, criteria, or limitation promulgated pursuant to a state environmental statute.' SARA also established that the requirements of the NCP apply to federal facilities, including their implementation of the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) at each facility. CERCLA, as amended by SARA, requires that federal facility remedial actions (for NPL as well as IRP sites) comply with requirements or standards under federal and state environmental laws. Therefore, ARARs are pertinent to Galena and Campion. The 1990 NCP incorporates the new statutory requirement that actions at any remedial sites at this facility must comply not only with ARARs under federal laws, but also with promulgated standards, requirements, criteria, or limitations under state environmental or facility siting laws that are more stringent than corresponding federal standards.
