The OSWDF is a specially engineered disposal facility with a multi-layer liner and cap system on competent bedrock designed to consolidate and contain demolition debris and soil into one centralized disposal area that protects public health and the environment.
The final impacted material disposal area footprint will occupy about 100 acres in the northeast portion of the DOE reservation. This area of the DOE reservation also offers geological conditions that will provide the most protection to human health and the environment.
Waste Acceptance Criteria
All demolition debris and waste materials must meet the strict requirements of Ohio and U.S. environmental laws before it can be placed into the On Site Waste Disposal Facility (OSWDF). This set of requirements is called the Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC). The WAC is a strict and systematic approach for choosing the right types of waste and right disposal methods to protect the public, environment and wildlife.
