SAN DIEGO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT
RULE 361.154 - STANDARD FOR ACTIVE WASTE DISPOSAL SITES
Each owner or operator of an active waste disposal site that receives asbestos-containing waste material from a source covered under Rules 361.149, 361.150, or 361.155 shall meet the requirements of this rule.
(a) Either there must be no visible emissions to the outside air from any active waste disposal site where asbestos-containing waste material has been deposited, or the requirements of Sections (c) or (d) of this rule must be met.
(b) Unless a natural barrier adequately deters access by the general public, either warning signs and fencing
must be installed and maintained as follows, or the requirements of Subsection (c)(1) of this rule must be met.
(ii) Conform to the requirements for 51 cm x 36 cm (20" x 14") upright format signs specified in 29 CFR 1910.145(d)(4) and this rule; and
(iii) Display the following legend in the lower panel with letter sizes and styles of a visibility at least equal to those specified below:
(3) Upon request and supply of appropriate information, the Control Officer will determine whether a fence or a natural barrier adequately deters access by the general public.
(c) Rather than meet the no visible emission requirement of Section (a) of this rule, 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 that has been deposited at the site during the operating day or previous 24-hour period shall:
(2) Be covered with a resinous or petroleum-based dust suppression agent that effectively binds dust and controls wind erosion. Such an agent shall be used in the manner and frequency recommended for the particular dust by the dust suppression agent manufacturer to achieve and maintain dust control. Other equally effective dust suppression agents may be used upon prior approval by the Control Officer. For purposes of this section, any used, spent, or other waste oil is not considered a dust suppression agent.
(d) Rather than meet the no visible emission requirement of Section (a) of this rule, use an alternative emissions control method that has received prior written approval by the Administrator according to the procedures described in Rule 361.149(c)(2).
(e) For all asbestos-containing waste material received, the owner or operator of the active waste disposal
(ii) The name, address, and telephone number of the transporter(s).
(iii) The quantity of the asbestos-containing waste material in cubic meters (cubic yards).
(iv) The presence of improperly enclosed or uncovered waste, or any asbestos-containing waste material not sealed in leak-tight containers. Report in writing to the local, state, or EPA Regional office responsible for administering the asbestos NESHAPS program for the waste generator (identified in the waste shipment record), and if different, the local, State, or EPA Regional office responsible for administering the asbestos NESHAPS program for the disposal site, by the following working day, the presence of a significant amount of improperly enclosed or uncovered waste. Submit a copy of the waste shipment record along with the report.
(3) Upon discovering a discrepancy between the quantity of waste designated on 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 local, State, or EPA Regional office responsible for administering the asbestos NESHAPS program for the waste generator (identified in the waste shipment record), and, if different, the local, State, or EPA Regional Office responsible for administering the asbestos NESHAPS program for the disposal site. Describe the discrepancy and attempts to reconcile it, and submit a copy of the waste shipment record along with the report.
(f) Maintain, until closure, records of the location, depth and area, and quantity in cubic meters (cubic yards) of asbestos-containing waste material within the disposal site on a map or diagram of the disposal area.
(g) Upon closure, comply with all the provisions of Rule 361.151.
(h) Submit to the Control Officer, upon closure of the facility, a copy of records of asbestos waste disposal locations and quantities.
(i) Furnish upon request, and make available during normal business hours for inspection by the Control Officer, all records required under this rule.
(j) Notify the Control Officer in writing at least 45 days prior to excavating or otherwise disturbing any asbestos-containing
waste material that has been deposited at a waste disposal site and is covered. If the excavation will begin on
a date other than the one contained in the original notice, notice of the new start date must be provided to the
Control Officer at least ten working days before excavation begins and in no event shall excavation begin earlier
than the date specified in the original notification. Include the following information in the notice:
(2) Reason for disturbing the waste.
(3) Procedures to be used to control emissions during the excavation, storage, transport, and ultimate disposal of the excavated asbestos-containing waste material. If deemed necessary, the Control Officer may require changes in the emission control procedures to be used.
(4) Location of any temporary storage site and the final disposal site.
