Title:CLARIFICATION OF REQUIREMENTS FOR SECONDARY CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS ASSOCIATED WITH HAZARDOUS WASTE TANKS
RCRA Online Number:14395
Date:11/03/1999
To:Sherman
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:New Jersey DEP
Description: External liners used as tank secondary containment must be free of cracks and gaps, and be designed to prevent migration of waste. Water stops at all joints and impermeable coatings are appropriate for concrete external liner systems. Although regulations allow for potential alternatives, EPA cannot envision a concrete containment structure meeting the regulatory requirements to prevent migration of waste without the use of impermeable coatings or water stops (SEE ALSO: 53 FR 34079, 34084; 9/2/88).
