Title:SUMMARY OF ASSISTANCE BRANCH PERMITTING COMMENTS
RCRA Online Number:13265
Date:03/14/1989
To:Directors, Regions 1-10
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: Discusses an automatic waste feed shut-off design for munitions deactivation (popping) furnaces and fugitive emissions control from popping furnaces. Pits used for dewatering and open burning are surface impoundments, not miscellaneous units. EPA can use omnibus provisions to impose additional controls on open burning in surface impoundments. Waste explosives that do not have the potential to detonate cannot be destroyed in open burning/open detonation (OB/OD) units. Solvents contaminated with explosives that have the potential to detonate can be open burned. Because open burning/open detonation (OB/OD) of waste explosives is treatment, not disposal, the land disposal restrictions (LDR) do not apply. Treatment residues may be subject to LDR. Clarifies when the disposal of explosives requires a permit and when unused explosives become wastes (SEE ALSO: 62 FR 6622; 2/12/97). Burning commercial fuel in fire training exercises is not regulated under RCRA. Discusses methods of determining soil background levels for the clean closure of surface impoundments and waste piles, circumstances in which the unit type can be redesignated during interim status, cleanup standards for corrective action, compliance points for soil and groundwater cleanup, timing of corrective action cleanup activities and site monitoring, termination of groundwater corrective action, the use of institutional controls, the use of trial burn data from one facility at other incinerators, the evaluation of trial burn plans for popping furnaces, and the use of in-place hydraulic conductivity testing during liner installation for surface impoundments and landfills. A landfill’s clay layer component of the final cover must be completely below the average frost depth. Addresses the use of natural material (calcium carbonate) and cement kiln dust in waste stabilization, the use of the RCRA corrective action plan (CAP) in HSWA permit preparation, the use of the 261.4(f)(2) authority to implement Subpart X standards in RCRA authorized states, and the permitting deadlines for Subpart X facilities.
