301.3The spraying of any substance containing any amount of asbestos in or upon a building or other structure during its construction, alteration or repair.

(Amended September 5, 1990)

11-2-302

Visible Emissions: There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air from any asbestos mill or from any operation involving the demolition, renovation, removal, manufacture or fabrication of any product containing asbestos.

302.1 For asbestos milling, or manufacturing or fabrication of products containing asbestos only, rather than meet the no visible emission requirements as specified by Section 11-2-302, a person may elect to use air-cleaning to clean emissions containing particulate asbestos material before such emissions escape to, or are vented to, the outside air. Each owner or operator must meet the following requirements:

1.1 Monitor each potential source of asbestos emissions from any part of the mill, manufacturing, or fabricating facility, including air cleaning devices, process equipment and buildings that house equipment for material processing and handling, at least once each day, during daylight hours, for visible emissions to the outside air during periods of operation.

1.2 Inspect each air cleaning device at least once each week for proper operation and maintenance, including, to the maximum extent possible without dismantling other than opening the device, the presence of tears, holes, and abrasions in filter bags and for dust deposits on the clean side of bags. For air cleaning devices that cannot be inspected weekly, submit a written maintenance plan to the APCO as specified in Section 11-2-404. If the use of fabric filters creates a fire or explosion hazard, the APCO may authorize the use of wet collectors designed to operate with a unit contacting energy of at least 9963 pa (40 in.) water gauge pressure. All air cleaning equipment authorized by this Regulation must be properly permitted, installed, used, operated and maintained. By-pass devices may be used only during emergency conditions and then only for so long as it takes to shut down the operation generating the particulate asbestos material.

(Amended Sept. 5, 1990; Dec. 4, 1991; Oct. 7, 1998)

11-2-303

Demolition, Renovation, and Removal: To prevent emissions from asbestos-containing material, a person responsible for scheduled, nonscheduled, or emergency demolition, renovation, or removal of any building elements containing any amount of RACM shall use the procedures specified in subsections 303.1 through 303.13. This shall not apply to maintenance or decontamination procedures where no removal takes place.

303.1 Wetting Method: All exposed RACM shall be adequately wetted and kept wet during cutting, stripping, demolition, renovation, removal and handling operations both inside and outside of a building, except when the methods specified in subsections 11-2-303.2 and 303.4 are used. Wetting requirements are suspended when the temperature at the point of wetting is below 0oC (32oF) in which case elements of RACM shall be removed in units or in sections to the maximum extent possible.

303.2 Exhaust and Collection Method: In lieu of wetting, a local HEPA exhaust, ventilation, and collection system designed and operated to capture the emissions from RACM and prevent any visible emissions to the outside air may be used during 1) stripping of any element that has been removed as a unit or in sections, in accordance with subsection 11-2-303.4; 2) to prevent emissions of particulate asbestos-containing material to the outside air when damage to equipment resulting from wetting would be unavoidable; 3) shotblasting of mastic. Approval for dry removal of RACM must be received from the APCO; requests for approval of dry removal must be in writing and meet the notification provisions of Section 11-2-401.

303.3 Scheduling of Demolition Activities: RACM shall be removed prior to demolition, or other operations that would either break up, or preclude access to the RACM for subsequent removal. Removal of RACM which is encased in concrete or other similar structural material is not required prior to demolition, but such material shall be adequately wetted whenever exposed during demolition or renovation and disposed of as RACM as required in Section 304.

303.4 Removal in Units: Elements that have RACM may be removed at any time in units or sections so long as the exposed RACM during cutting or disjointing is adequately wetted or encapsulated to prevent emissions of particulate asbestos material. Such sections if elevated shall be carefully lowered to ground level, where they are to be abated in accordance with subsection 11-2-303.1 and/or 303.2.

303.5 Removal By Chute or Container: All RACM not removed in units or sections shall be adequately wetted and kept wet in accordance with subsection 11-2-303.1, and transported to the ground in leak-tight chutes or containers, utilizing negative air and HEPA equipment.

303.6 Containment Requirement: Any building, structure, room, facility or installation from which RACM is being stripped or removed shall be isolated by physical barriers from the outside air to the extent feasible as determined by the APCO. Such barriers shall include transparent viewing ports which shall be in place prior to the commencement of the removal of the RACM and which allow observation, to the extent feasible as determined by the APCO, of all stripping and removal of RACM from outside the barrier. The negative air pressure inside the isolated work area shall be maintained at a pressure differential relative to adjacent, nonisolated areas to the extent feasible. The negative air pressure ventilation equipment shall be operated continuously from the establishment of isolation barriers through final clean-up of the work area following stripping or removal of RACM. Any such local exhaust ventilation system shall filter the air from the isolated area with a HEPA filter, or equivalent, prior to exhausting. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to a removal done entirely by the glovebag method, provided the bag is evacuated with a HEPA filter vacuum prior to removal from the element being stripped; a removal using a mini-enclosure designed and operated according to current OSHA standards; a removal of one square foot or less done in accordance with subsection 11-2-303.1 and using a local HEPA exhaust, ventilation and collection system; or a removal using any other engineering control technique approved by the APCO. The requirement to maintain negative air pressure shall not apply to outdoor pipeways at industrial facilities; however, these jobs shall be contained by plastic barriers to the extent feasible to prevent visible emissions of RACM.

303.7 Clean Work Site Requirement: All friable asbestos-containing waste material related to a specific demolition, renovation or removal, including pre-existing debris, shall be handled in accordance with the provisions of Sections 11-2-303 and 11-2-304.

303.8 Surveys: Except for ordered demolitions, prior to commencement of any demolition or renovation, the owner or operator shall thoroughly survey the affected structure or portion thereof for the presence of asbestos-containing material, including Category I and Category II nonfriable asbestos-containing material. The survey shall be performed by a person who is certified by the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, and who has taken and passed an EPA-approved Building Inspector course and who conforms to the procedures outlined in the course. The survey shall include sampling and the results of laboratory analysis of the asbestos content of all suspected asbestos-containing materials. This survey shall be made available, upon request by the APCO, prior to the commencement of any RACM removal or any demolition. This subsection shall not apply if the owner or operator asserts that the material to be renovated is RACM and will be handled in accordance with the provisions of Sections 11-2-303, 304 and 401. The requirement for certification by the Division of Occupational Safety and Health shall not apply to in-house health professionals within a specific nonasbestos related company who perform occasional surveys only for that company as part of their regular job responsibilities

8.1 When a structure, or portion thereof, is demolished under an ordered demolition, the survey must be done prior to, during, or after the demolition but prior to loading or removal of any demolition debris. If the debris contains regulated asbestos-containing material, all of the debris shall be treated as asbestos-containing waste material pursuant to Section 11-2-304.

8.2 For renovation or demolition of residential buildings having four or fewer dwelling units, a survey is not required. A sample and test of the material will be required only when any of the following will be removed or disturbed: heating, ventilation, air conditioning ducting and systems; acoustic ceiling material or acoustic plaster; textured or skim coated wall surfaces, cement siding or stucco, or resilient flooring. Where the material is found to contain greater than 1 percent asbestos and is friable, the material must be handled in accordance with Section 11-2-303.

303.9 On-Site Representative: No RACM shall be stripped or removed unless at least one on-site representative, such as a foreman or management-level person or other authorized representative, certifies that he or she is familiar with the provisions of this rule as it pertains to demolition and renovation and the means of compliance therewith, and is present during all stripping and removing of RACM. The required training shall include: applicability of the regulation, notifications, procedures, material identification, and control procedures for removals, including: adequate wetting, local exhaust ventilation and HEPA filtration, negative pressure enclosures , glove-bag procedures, waste disposal work practices, and reporting and record keeping requirements. Evidence that the required training has been completed shall be posted on-site and made available for inspection by the APCO. This subsection shall not apply to RACM stripped or removed from an owner-occupied single-family dwelling by the owner.

303.10 RACM Discovered After Demolition: If RACM is not discovered until after demolition begins and as a result of the demolition cannot be safely removed, the asbestos-contaminated debris shall be treated as asbestos-containing waste material and kept adequately wet at all times until disposed of according to the provisions of Section 11-2-304. Immediately after the RACM is discovered the owner or operator shall comply with the provisions of subsections 11-2-303.1, 303.6 and 401.3.

(Adopted December 4, 1991; Amended October 7, 1998)

303.11 Ordered Demolition: The owner or operator of any demolition of any building or other stationary structure pursuant to an order of an authorized representative of a state or local governmental agency, issued because that building is structurally unsound and in danger of imminent collapse, or has been declared a public nuisance, shall comply with the survey requirements of subsection 11-2-303.8, the wetting requirements of subsection 11-2-303.1 and the disposal requirements of Section 11-2-304. Fire training is not exempted from this Section.

303.12 Intentional Burning: If demolition is accomplished by intentional burning, all RACM, including Category I and Category II nonfriable asbestos-containing material shall be removed in accordance with Section 11-2-303, before burning.

303.13 Emergency Renovation: An emergency renovation shall be approved by the APCO prior to the initiation of work and shall apply only to the abatement of the immediate hazard.(Amended December 4, 1991; October 7, 1998)

11-2-304

Waste Disposal: To prevent emissions from asbestos-containing material, a person responsible for the collection, processing (including incineration and conversion), packaging, transporting, or disposition of any asbestos-containing waste material which is generated by manufacturing; fabricating; scheduled, nonscheduled, or emergency demolition or renovation, whether notified or not; spraying operations; or asbestos milling, shall use the following procedures:

304.1 The person responsible for any demolition, renovation or removal of RACM, or for any source other than an asbestos mill may elect to use either of the following disposal methods or an alternative disposal method which has received prior approval by the APCO:

1.1 Treatment of asbestos-containing waste material with water. Control device asbestos waste shall be thoroughly mixed with water into a slurry and other asbestos-containing waste material shall be adequately wetted and kept wet. There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air from the collection, mixing and wetting operations, except as permitted in Sections 11-2-110 and 11-2-302.1. After wetting, and while still wet, all asbestos-containing waste material shall be sealed into leak-tight containers prior to being removed from containment as specified in subsection 11-2-303.6. Such containers shall remain leak-tight and be deposited at waste disposal sites which are operated in accordance with the provisions of Section 11-2-304. The containers shall be labeled with the name of the waste generator and the location (address) from which the waste was generated prior to being removed from containment. Unless they are located within a contained area, glovebags are considered to be removed from containment when they are removed from the OSHA regulated area. Containers shall also include an asbestos warning label, as specified in Section 11-2-601. These labels must be printed in letters of sufficient size and contrast to be readily visible and legible.

1.2 Processing of asbestos-containing waste material into nonfriable forms. All asbestos-containing waste material shall be formed into nonfriable pellets or other shapes and deposited at waste disposal sites which are operated in accordance with this regulation. There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air from this collection and processing of asbestos-containing waste material except as permitted in Sections 11-2-110 and 11-2-302.1. For the purposes of this subsection, the term "all asbestos-containing waste material" as applied to demolition and renovation operations covered by Section 11-2-303 includes only friable asbestos waste and control device asbestos waste.

1.3 Conversion of RACM and asbestos-containing waste material into nonasbestos (asbestos-free) material: Each owner or operator of a conversion operation shall comply with Sections 11-2-402 and 11-2-504 of this Regulation.

304.2 Rather than meet the requirements of Section 11-2-304, the person responsible for an asbestos mill may elect to meet the following requirements or use an alternative disposal method which has received prior approval by the APCO:

2.1 There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air from the transfer of control-device asbestos waste to the tailings conveyor, except as permitted in Sections 11-2-110 and 11-2-301.1. Such waste shall be subsequently processed in accordance with this Regulation.

2.2 All asbestos-containing waste material shall be adequately mixed with a wetting agent prior to disposition at a waste disposal site. Such wetting agent shall be used as recommended for the particular dust by the manufacturer of the agent. There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air from the wetting operation except as permitted in Sections 11-2-110 and 11-2-302.1. Wetting may be suspended when the ambient air temperature at the waste disposal site is less than -9.5oC (15oF). The ambient air temperature shall be determined by an appropriate measurement method with an accuracy of +1oC or +2oF and recorded at least at hourly intervals during the period that the operation of the wetting system is suspended.

304.3 All asbestos-containing waste material shall be deposited at waste disposal sites operated in accordance with this Rule.

304.4 For demolitions where the RACM is not removed prior to demolition pursuant to subsection 11-2-303.11, the asbestos-containing waste material shall be kept adequately wetted at all times after demolition, during handling and loading and shall be sealed in leak-tight containers for transport to a disposal site.

304.5 All vehicles used to transport asbestos-containing waste material shall be marked as specified in Section 11-2-608 during the loading and unloading of waste. The signs shall be visible and shall be displayed in such a manner that a person can easily read the legend.

304.6 The owner or operator of all asbestos-containing waste material, generated as a result of demolition or renovation activities, which is transported off the facility site shall meet all of the following requirements:

6.1 Maintain a waste shipment record as specified in Section 11-2-502.

6.2 Provide a copy of the waste shipment record referenced in subsection 11-2-304.6.1 to the disposal site owner or operator at the same time the asbestos-containing waste material is delivered to the disposal site.

6.3 Contact the transporter and/or the owner or operator of the disposal site to determine the status of the waste shipment, if the waste shipment record referenced in subsection 11-2-304.6.1, signed by the owner or operator of the designated disposal site, is not received by the waste generator within 35 days of the date the waste was accepted by the initial transporter.

6.4 Provide a written report to the APCO if a copy of the waste shipment record referenced in subsection 11-2-304.6.1, signed by the owner or operator of the disposal site, is not received by the waste generator within 45 days of the date the waste was accepted by the initial transporter. The following information shall by included: A copy of the waste shipment record referenced in subsection 11-2-304.6.1 for which a confirmation of delivery was not received, and a letter signed by the waste generator explaining the efforts taken to locate the asbestos waste shipment and the results of those efforts.

(Amended Sept. 5, 1990; Dec. 4, 1991; Oct. 7, 1998)

11-2-305

Waste Disposal Sites: There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air from a waste disposal site where asbestos-containing waste material has been or is being deposited.

305.1 Warning signs meeting the requirements of Section 11-2-602 shall be displayed at all entrances, and along the property line of the site or along the perimeter of the sections of the site where asbestos-containing waste material was deposited, at intervals of 100 m (330 ft) or less. Warning signs and fencing are not required where the requirements of subsections 11-2-305.3.1 and 11-2-305.3.2 are met, or where a natural barrier adequately deters access by the general public. Upon request and supply of appropriate information, the APCO will determine whether a fence or a natural barrier adequately deters access to the general public; and

305.2 The perimeter of the site shall be fenced in a manner adequate to deter access by the general public, except as specified in subsection 11-2-305.1.

305.3 Rather than meet the requirements of subsection 11-2-305.1 and 11-2-305.2, a person may elect to meet the following requirements or may use an alternative control method for emissions from a waste disposal site which has received prior approval by the APCO.

3.1 For an inactive site, the asbestos-containing waste material shall be covered with at least 15 cm (6 in) of compacted nonasbestos-containing material and a cover of vegetation shall be grown and maintained on the area adequate to prevent exposure of the asbestos-containing waste material; or the asbestos-containing waste material shall be covered with at least 61 cm (2 ft) of compacted nonasbestos-containing material and maintained to prevent exposure of the asbestos-containing waste.

3.2 For inactive waste disposal sites for asbestos tailings, a resinous or petroleum-based dust suppression agent which effectively binds dust and controls wind erosion shall be applied. Such agent shall be used as recommended for the particular asbestos tailings by the dust suppression agent manufacturer. Other equally effective dust suppression agents may be used upon prior approval by the APCO. For purposes of this subsection waste crankcase oil is not considered a dust suppression agent.

3.3 For an active waste disposal site, at the end of each operating day, or at least once every 24-hour period while the site is in continuous operation, the asbestos-containing waste material which was deposited at the site during the operating day or previous 24-hour period shall be covered with at least 15 cm (6 in) of compacted nonasbestos-containing material. Alternately, a resinous or petroleum-based dust suppression agent which effectively binds dust and controls wind erosion may be used. Such dust suppression agent shall be used as recommended for the particular dust by the dust suppression agent manufacturer. Other equally effective dust suppression agents may be used upon prior approval by the APCO. For purposes of this subsection, waste crankcase oil is not considered a dust suppression agent.

305.4 For an active waste disposal site, the owner or operator shall:

4.1 Maintain waste shipment records as specified in Section 11-2-503 for all asbestos-containing waste material received.

4.2 Send a copy of the signed waste shipment record to the waste generator, as soon as possible, and in no case longer than 30 days after the receipt of the waste:

4.3 Upon discovering a discrepancy between the quantity of asbestos-containing waste material noted in the waste shipment records and the quantity actually received, attempt to reconcile the discrepancy with the waste generator. If the discrepancy is not resolved within 15 days after receiving the waste, immediately report in writing to the APCO. Describe the discrepancy and attempts to resolve it, and include a copy of the waste shipment record.
