Title:SCOPE AND APPLICABILITY OF RCRA REGULATIONS AT WOOD PRESERVING FACILITIES
RCRA Online Number:14608
Date:07/17/2002
To:Brugge
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:American Wood Preservers Institute (AWPI)
Description: Whether stormwater runoff from pentachlorophenol treated wood is a hazardous waste (e.g., F032) depends on site-specific factors. Stormwater that contacts preservative solutions or listed waste is hazardous via the contained-in policy. Precipitation runoff in storage yards is not F032 and drippage does not constitute illegal disposal, provided the facility complies with Subpart W. Steam from wood preserving equipment that condenses and settles away from the equipment is not F032, F034, or F035. A facility operating a tank-based zero discharge system is considered subject to the CWA for the purposes of the wastewater treatment unit (WWTU) definition. Drip pads are not required in storage yards, provided that any infrequent and incidental drippage is immediately responded to as outlined in the facility contingency plan. Infrequent and incidental drippage determinations are site-specific. Whether the presence of hazardous contaminants in soil indicates illegal disposal is determined on a case-by-case basis. State regulations can be more stringent.
