Title:SLUDGE FROM TREATMENT OF U154 CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER
RCRA Online Number:14207
Date:03/21/1996
To:Day
From:Berlow
Organization of Recipient:Bryan Cave, LLP
Description: Sludge generated from treatment of groundwater contaminated with U154 (methyl alcohol) is prohibited from land disposal only if the sludge is a hazardous waste at its point of generation. Sludge generated from wastewater treatment is considered a newly-generated waste because it is a different treatability group than the wastewater being treated (SEE ALSO: 55 FR 22661; 6/1/90). Discusses change in treatability group. U154 is listed solely for ignitability and is no longer hazardous when it becomes part of a noncharacteristic mixture (Section 261.3(a)(2)(iii))(SEE ALSO: 66 FR 27266; 5/16/01). Contaminated groundwater may become part of a non-ignitable mixture when introduced to wastewater treatment system. Sludge generated from treating non-ignitable wastewaters is not derived from hazardous waste.
