i BACKGROUND INFORMATION Groundwater quality monitoring activities at the waste-management sites in the Bear Creek Regime have been in progress since the late 1970s and have evolved in response to regulatory changes and monitoring results. A brief description of the waste-management facilities in the Bear Creek Regime, including waste inventories and disposal histories, and a discussion of the regulatory status and groundwater monitoring history of each site, are provided in the following

CERCLA Operable Units In 1984, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the TDEC determined that several of the waste-management sites at the Y-12 Plant were hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal (TSD) units subject to regulation under RCRA (Table 1 ). Three of the TSD units are located in the Bear Creek Regime: the S-3 Site, the Oil Landfarm waste-management area (WMA), and the Bear Creek Burial Grounds WMA (Figure 3 ). These sites were granted RCRA interim status until operating or post-closure RCRA permits were obtained by the DOE. The RCRA post-closure permit applications (PCPAs) for these sites were initially submitted to the TDEC in 1987. Also in 1987, Spoil Area I, the Rust Spoil Area, and the SY-200 Yard were identified as solid waste management units (SWMUs) subject to regulation under section 3004(u) of RCRA (Welch g t a. 1987).
