1.   ENVIRONMENTAL TERMS.

    a. Environment. The environment includes air, water, land,
man-made structures, all organisms living therein, the
interrelationships that exist among them, and archeological and
cultural resources.

    b. Environmental Enhancement. All actions taken to improve
the environment beyond, but not limited to, those actions that
maintain environmental compliance and meet environmental quality
standards.

    c. Environmental Pollution. The conditions resulting from
the presence of chemical, physical, or biological agents or
causes which alter the natural environment, adversely affecting
human health or the quality of life, biosystems, structures and
equipment, recreational opportunities, or natural beauty.

    d. Finding. A deficiency that could result in a Notice of
Violation (NOV) a fine or other enforcement action if discovered
by a regulatory agency. Findings normally are the result of
noncompliance with an applicable federal, state, or local
definition is allowed, as demonstrated by the following example:
An evaluator visits 15 sites and finds the same deficiency at 10
locations. The Environmental Compliance Evaluation (ECE) Team
Leader may assign a “Finding” to the worst site to identify the
trend and assign “Discrepancy” to the remaining nine sites.

                               SO 2
    e. Discrepancy. A deficiency that would not normally result
in an NOV, a fine, or other enforcement action if discovered by
a regulatory agency. Discrepancies normally result from poor
management practices or failure to follow installation SOP’s
MCO’s or DON and DoD directives. Also falling into the
discrepancy category are minor differences in interpreting
requirements and repetitive deficiencies identified as part of a
trend.

    f. Environmental Training. Any form of instruction and
information that is based upon, derived from, or guided by,
environmental laws, regulations, or policies.

chemical transformation of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Nitrogen
Oxides (NOx) emissions.

    h. Air Pollution Emergency Episodes. The accumulation of
air pollutants in an area which reaches levels which could, if
such levels are sustained of exceeded, lead to a substantial
threat to the health of individuals.

    i. Above-Ground Release. Any release to the surface of the
land or to surface water. This includes, but is not limited to,
releases from the above-ground portion of a under-ground storage
tank (UST) system and aboveground releases associated with
overfills and transfer operations as a regulated substance moves
to or from a UST system.

    j. Below-Ground Release. Any release to the subsurface of
the land and to groundwater. This includes, but not limited to,
releases from the below-ground portions of a UST system and
below-ground releases associated with overfills and transfer
operations as a regulated substance moves to or from a UST
system.

    k. Disposal. The discharge, deposit, injection, dumping,
spilling, leaking, or placing of any Solid Waste (SW) or
Hazardous Waste (HW) into or on any land or water so that such
SW or HW, or any constituent thereof, may enter the environment
or emitted into the air or discharged into any waters, including
groundwater.

for storage.
3. All HAZMAT in general purpose storage area would be placed in storage cabinets
meeting requirements of 29 CFR 1910.106(d)(3). Maximum of 3 storage cabinets allowed
in fire area. Additional group of up to 3 cabinets must be separated from other
cabinets or group of cabinets by at least 100 ft. as specified by NFPA 30.
4. In lieu of storage cabinets, separate storage rooms constructed as specified in 29
CFR 1910.106(d)(4) are allowed.
5. Maximum storage for flammable aerosols based on fact that flammable aerosols are
considered same as OSHA IA liquids for storage purposes per the definition in 29 CFR
1910.106 (A)(13).
6. Maximum quantity of corrosives chosen based on fact that maximum desired amount in
storage should not equal EPCRA reportable quantity of Sulfuric Acid and Sodium
Hydroxide as these are common corrosives.
7. Storage of kits containing multiple types of hazardous materials will be determined
by the most restrictive size/quantity limitations, compatibility constraints, and most
severe hazard classification.
8. Incompatible products shall be placed in separate storage cabinets in the same
