CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan



Chapter 1


                              INTRODUCTION
This California Army National Guard (CAARNG) Hazardous Material & Waste Management
Plan (HMWMP) prescribes responsibilities, policies, and procedures for storing and managing
hazardous materials and wastes and for preventing pollution. Required by Army Regulation 200-
1, Environmental Protection and Enhancement, the HMWMP is written to ensure CAARNG
compliance with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

The HMWMP is formatted like an Army Technical Manual, with easy-to-follow procedures and
visual cues. To use the Plan, look on the front cover to see what chapter contains the information
you need, and then flip to the tab for that chapter.

This HMWMP is a general plan encompassing all CA ARNG Facilities managing, handling and
storing hazardous materials/waste in the State of California. It is to be used in combination with
the appropriate training mandated by federal and state law.

Purpose and Scope
This Plan can be used as both a freestanding document and as a training manual. Written
primarily for personnel at the activity and unit level, it provides instructions for the following:

           Managing, handling and storing hazardous materials (HM) and hazardous waste
            (HW) in the State of California;
           Using Pollution Prevention (P2) to minimize the amount of materials used and the
            wastes generated
A companion document, the Integrated Pollution Prevention Management Plan provides a
general overview of the programs for management personnel.

      Both the HMWMP and the companion Management Plan apply to:

           All activities under the command of the CAARNG
           Any other activity that disposes of hazardous waste while using CAARNG training
            sites
           Training conducted outside of California or on active duty installations within the
            state, unless the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the host activity dictates
            otherwise
Activities permanently located on active duty installations must comply with this HMWMP,
unless the SOP for the host activity dictates otherwise.




                                                                       -1-
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan



Requirements
Federal Requirements
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid
Waste Amendments (HSWA), established waste management and pollution prevention laws that
apply to federal agencies. The Federal Facilities Compliance Act, another RCRA amendment,
further requires that all Department of Defense (DOD) installations comply with federal
hazardous waste laws and regulations. Federal waste management regulations are published in
Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR).

The CAARNG must comply with 40 CFR Part 260 through Part 272 for the regulation of
hazardous waste. The CAARNG must also comply with 49 CFR Parts 170 through 177
regarding hazardous materials transportation, 29 CFR Part 1910 regarding Occupational Safety
and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, and Executive Order (EO) 12856 regarding
compliance with the Pollution Prevention Act (PPA) of 1990.

In addition to hazardous waste or chemicals subject to the Emergency Planning and Community
Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA), the PPA also includes all hazardous substances,
pollutants, or contaminants. Federal facilities, including Army installations, were subjected to the
requirements of the Act when President Clinton signed EO 12856, setting the Federal
Government’s policy on pollution prevention and requiring federal facilities to prepare P2 plans.
The President noted that:

        “. . . Federal facilities will set the example for the rest of the country and become
       the leader in applying pollution prevention to daily operations, purchasing
       decisions and policies. In the process, federal facilities will reduce toxic
       emissions, which helps avoid cleanup costs and promotes clean technologies.”

State Regulations
All of California’s environmental regulations are derived from California’s Health & Safety
Code. The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Department of Toxic Substances
Control enforces these laws through regulations pertaining to chemical management and waste
generation specific to the State of California in the California Code of Regulations (CCR) Titles
1-28. Hazardous waste regulations specific to California are published in CCR 22. The
CAARNG must comply with these and all other applicable California State regulations.

Military Regulations
The CAARNG must comply with the Army Environmental Protection and Enhancement
Regulation (AR 200-1), which sets the Army’s policy for managing and minimizing hazardous
materials and waste. The HMWMP provides procedures for complying with the following
chapters of AR 200-1:



          Chapter 4, Hazardous Material Management;


                                                                      -2-

   (4) The CAARNG does not operate any Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage, or Disposal facilities.


Local Regulations, Ordinances, and Codes
AR 200-1 requires compliance with local environmental regulations. Consult with the CAARNG
Environmental Programs Directorate (CAEV) regarding local regulations. In the absence of a
specific local regulation or ordinance, the CA ARNG must always follow the guidelines
established for the management of hazardous chemicals in the CCR and the CFR.




                                                                               -3-
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan



Contractual Obligations
The CAARNG routinely contracts for services related to environmental compliance, such as
waste transportation and disposal. These contracts may include requirements that are more
stringent than the regulations. The CAARNG will comply with all contractor restrictions that do
not violate any regulation, order, ordinance, code, or other regulatory requirement.

Description of CAARNG Operations
The CAARNG is a division of the California State Military Department, as displayed in the
following organizational chart. CAARNG Headquarters (HQ) is co-located with HQ, California
National Guard and HQ, California Air National Guard in Sacramento, California. CAARNG’s
primary mission is to provide mission-ready forces to the federal government in the event of war
or other issues of national defense.

Secondarily, the CAARNG provides the California Military Department with a ready militia in
the event of a civilian emergency or a natural disaster.




                                                                   -4-
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan


The CAARNG manages training sites and maintains military vehicles and equipment. It
operates more than 60 surface maintenance facilities (MATES, CSMS, and OMS), aviation
maintenance facilities (AASF and AVCRAD), Camps, armories, and other facilities throughout
the state. The federal (RCRA) hazardous waste generator status and EPA ID Number for each
CAARNG activity is provided in the table below. The generators status for each unit/facility is
listed beneath the RCRA column. Each unit/facility will be listed as LQG, SQG, or CESQG.
These designations are obtained from the amount (in pounds) of hazardous waste each
unit/facility disposes of on a monthly and or yearly basis. This designation determines how long
hazardous waste may accumulate at each unit/facility before it must be disposed of. The
definitions of LQG, SQG and CESQG and be found in chapter 10 of this plan.

General Procedures
Whether checking in new products or maintaining current stock, the ECO must properly
store HMs to minimize hazards to personnel /property. HM can be stored in storage
lockers, storage rooms, warehouses, or racks. In addition, there are special guidelines for
storing compressed gases.

                                         WARNING!

               DO NOT store tools or personal items in any HM storage
               location.

               DO NOT store combustible materials, such as cardboard,
               paper, or rags, with flammable HMs.

               DO NOT store any incompatible hazardous materials
               together (i.e. oxygen gas (oxidizer) with acetylene gas,
               batteries (corrosives) with flammables, oxidizers, poisons,
               toxics, etc.).

               DO NOT store flammable or reactive HM within 50 feet of
               the property boundary.

               DO NOT store HM in trailers, vehicles, personal wall
               lockers, near floor drains, or in areas with high foot or
               vehicle traffic.

               DO NOT use wood to construct additional or replacement
               shelving.

To set up storage areas, follow the flowchart below and use the Hazardous Chemical
Storage Setup Checklist provided at the end of this chapter. Chapter 9 includes
information for inspecting storage locations.

                                   Inspect existing storage
                                          locations




                        If necessary, modify existing storage areas or
                            set up new chemical storage areas, and
                           implement MSDS management process




                             Manage chemical storage locations




                                                                                              2
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan



Storage Lockers
Use storage lockers in the work area to store daily amounts of commonly used HMs, such
as grease tubes, quart oil cans, aerosol cans, etc. All lockers must be approved by the
National Fire Protection Association [NFPA]. The locker color depends on the HM being
stored

       HM Type                               Locker Color

       Flammables                            Yellow
       Corrosives                            Blue
       Oxidizers                             Red


Be sure to keep your lockers clean and orderly and to maintain all structural integrity and
hardware, including doors, hinges, and shelves. Do not remove the door or ventilation
bungs, penetrate the wall, modify ventilation, or otherwise modify the locker. Keep
locker doors closed when materials are not being transferred.

To set up a locker,

STEP 1.    Use the following guidelines to select a location for the locker:

          Locate the locker indoors in a well-ventilated area near where the HM will be
           used, or outdoors under cover.
          Maintain easy access to the locker.
          Do not block doors.
          Do not place lockers near break rooms, bathrooms, offices, or other occupied
           non-shop areas.
          Do not place lockers near floor drains, drainage channels, or areas with high
           foot or vehicle traffic.
STEP 2.    Assign a two-digit number (i.e., 01) to the locker and mark it on the front top
           right corner.

           Each locker must have a unique number designator. Do not use
           designators more than once in any building. If you share your building
           with another activity, coordinate numbers so as not to use the same
           designator.




                                                                                             3
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan


STEP 3.    Post any Warning signs required by the State Safety Officer (SSO).

**Do not place unauthorized signs, labels, stickers, or markings on the locker.




STEP 4.    Ensure that an appropriately rated fire extinguisher and spill response
           equipment is located nearby.

STEP 5.    Inventory the storage locker. The inventory will need the following
           information:

      Chemical name

      National Stock Number (NSN)

      Chemical Manufacturer name

      DLA or contact number

      Chemical Manufacturer’s city, state, and phone numbers (if the chemical is not
       from the military supply system).

**The monthly inventory form can be found at the end of chapter 3.




                                                                                        4

           IAW Chapter 3.

STEP 8.    Ensure that all chemicals in the locker are compatible, IAW Chapter 3.

STEP 9.    Prepare the locker:

STEP 9-1. Determine how much space you will need for each HM.

STEP 9-2. Ensure materials within the locker are orderly and securely closed.

STEP 9-3. Place a piece of duct tape along the entire front edge of each shelf and mark
          the unique shelf ID number on the duct tape in the center of the shelf space
          allotted for each item.

STEP 10. Assign a Storage Location Number (SLN) to each container, using the two-
         digit storage locker number and shelf number (xx-yy; where xx is the two-
         digit locker number and yy is the shelf number).

STEP 11. Mark each MSDS with the complete SLN used in STEP 10.

STEP 12. Sort the MSDSs by SLN and place the sorted MSDSs in a centrally located
         binder or in a plastic sleeve on the outside or inside of the locker.

STEP 13. Complete an inventory form IAW Chapter 3 and place in a centrally located
         binder or in a plastic sleeve on the outside or inside of the locker.

Storage Rooms and Warehouses
You must receive written approval from the SSO to establish a storage room or
warehouse or to modify an existing location.

Keep rooms and warehouses clean and orderly, and maintain all structural integrity and hardware
including doors, hinges, and shelves. Do not remove door, penetrate walls, modify ventilation, or
otherwise modify the room or warehouse without approval from the SSO or CAEV.

To set up a storage room or warehouse,

STEP 1.    Contact SSO and CAEV to approve the location before use.

STEP 2.    Provide primary and secondary containment. Secondary containment must
           equal the capacity of the largest container stored within the area plus 10%.

STEP 3.    Ensure that an appropriately rated fire extinguisher and spill response
           equipment is located nearby.




                                                                                             5

       Obtain other specific storage requirements from the SSO.

Storage Racks
You must receive written approval from the SSO and or CAEV to establish a storage rack
or to modify an existing location.

To set up a storage rack,

STEP 1.    Contact the SSO and CAEV to approve the location before use.

STEP 2.    Provide primary and secondary containment. Secondary containment must
           equal the capacity of the largest container stored within the area plus 10%.
           Place drip pans under dispensing faucets or valves.

STEP 3.    Ensure that an appropriately rated fire extinguisher and spill response
           equipment is located nearby.

         sleeve on the outside of the rack.

STEP 12. Complete an inventory form IAW Chapter 3 and place it in a plastic sleeve
         located near the rack.

Storage for Compressed Gases

       This section does not apply to fire extinguishers or spray cans.

If you are storing compressed gases, there are additional guidelines to follow. Because
compressed gases are under pressure, handle such gases with extreme care, particularly
the flammable and explosive gases. Keep the following guidelines in mind when storing
compressed gases:



       DO NOT use cylinders as rollers or supports, or for any other unintended
       purpose.

       DO NOT accept, issue, or use a cylinder unless the contents are identified.

       DO NOT use cylinders that are not properly marked (unmarked).




                                                                                             8
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan



       DO NOT store gas cylinders lying down on their sides, always store in an
       upright position with the cap on.

       Always secure gas cylinders appropriately either with a chain around the
       middle of the cylinder or in a constructed device to keep the cylinder from
       falling down.

       Do Not secure the gas cylinder with a chain around the regulator.

STEP 1.    Select or construct a safe area:

       Contact the SSO for specific guidance when selecting an area to store
       compressed gases

          Ensure that all electrical installations are IAW Class I, Division 2 locations as
           defined in Article 500 of the National Electric Code. Use skylights if possible.
          Ensure that all electrical installations are properly grounded; ensure cylinders
           are not used for grounding.
          Construct shelves, racks, and floors of storage areas of noncombustible or
           limited-combustible materials. Design them so they support the weight of the
           cylinders.
          Ensure a complete change of air at least six times each hour.
           If you are storing gas cylinders outdoors, follow these construction guidelines:

          If the climate is favorable and security is adequate, store gas cylinders in a
           roofed, open-sided shed with an above-grade concrete slab.
          Construct sheds of light, noncombustible materials.
          Do not heat sheds.
          If the facility has adequate space, separate storage facilities from other
           buildings by at least 50 feet.
          Store combustible and other incompatible gases in sheds separated by a
           minimum distance of 50 feet.
          If the shed has one or more walls, ensure a complete change of air at least six
           times each hour.
          Keep storage areas clear of dry vegetation and combustible materials for at
           least 15 feet.
          Keep cylinders out of the sun, off the ground (earth), and away from surfaces
           where water can accumulate.
          Protect storage areas from vehicle traffic.



                                                                                              9
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan




STEP 2.     Secure the area:

           Secure and lock storage areas against unauthorized entry.
           Post “NO SMOKING” signs. Do not allow open flames within 50 feet.
           Place appropriate hazard identification signs such as “Flammable” at all
            entrances.
STEP 3.     Label cylinders IAW MIL STD-101. Tag or label filled cylinders with the
            proper name and two stock numbers - one for the gas and one for the cylinder.

            DO NOT alter or remove labels applied by the gas manufacturer or mark on
            cylinders.

STEP 4.     Place cylinders carefully:

           Secure cylinders being used or stored so they do not fall over by chaining or
            strapping the middle of the cylinder to a wall.
           Store all gas cylinders upright and covered to ensure the pressure relief valve
            directly communicates with the vapor space of the cylinder.
           DO NOT place cylinders where they could become part of an electrical
            circuit.




       
           DO NOT drop cylinders or permit them to strike against each other violently.
           Separate all cylinders by compatibility and away from combustible materials:
           Segregate incompatible or combustible materials by at least 50 feet
       or




                                                                                            10
CA ARNG Hazardous Material & Waste Management Plan


          Isolate incompatible or combustible materials with a barrier of
           noncombustible material at least 5 feet high and with a minimum fire
           resistance rating of 30 minutes
           See the Determining Hazardous Material Compatibility section in Chapter 3
           for more information.

You must include cylinders in the hazardous materials inspection program (see Chapter
3). When you inspect cylinders, check for the following items:

          Ensure that the valve outlet connectors of both full and empty cylinders have
           an authorized protection cap.
          Ensure that oxygen cylinders are free from grease and oil.
          Tag empty cylinders as “empty” and store them with the valves closed,
           protection caps on, and away from full cylinders.
If you must move cylinders, note the following precautions:

      Close cylinder valves before moving cylinders.

      DO NOT lift cylinders by the valve protection cap.

      DO NOT lift cylinders by cranes or mechanical lifts unless fastened in proper
       containers, racks, and cradles. Do not use rope and chain slings or electromagnets
       to lift cylinders.

      Only handle, ship, or store cylinders if they have valve protection caps.
       Exceptions are
               -   small cylinders of less than 40-pound capacity
               -   “ram-bottom” type cylinders
               -   cylinders with less than 625 cubic inches of volumetric capacity, such
                   as medical gases




                                                                                        11
