Most EPA licensed facilities are now required by the EPA to a conduct Decommissioning Management Plan (DMP’s) which identifies the actions that will be taken following the cessation of activities at a licenced site. The known liabilities are appraised along with potential legacy environmental issues to ensure that there are no significant environmental liabilities arising post sites closure. Rowan Engineering Consultants can also complete a Closure, Restoration and Aftercare Management Plan (CRAMP). CRAMP is used to determine the known environmental liabilities associated with the closure and decommissioning of the facility e.g. landfill or mine which has known environmental liabilities post closure.
The EPA are presently updating the requirements for DMP and CRAMP, and the new guidance will replace the 2006 Environmental Liabilities Guidance document. The EPA has issued the, ‘Guidance on Assessing and Costing Environmental Liabilities’ in 2014.
