Document Description
Edwards has requested a Class 3 Permit Modification to their current hazardous waste (HW) Facility Permit to add two existing treatment units for open burn and open detonation (OB/OD) activities. Edwards current HW permit, issued by DTSC in November 2005 and effective through November 2015 allows Edwards to store onsite generated HW waste in containers. Currently, Edwards is authorized by DTSC to operate OB/OD treatment units from a January 19, 1993 Stipulation and Order. The Authorization allows for operation of the OB/OD units only until DTSC makes a hazardous waste facility permit determination. The OB/OD units are to treat waste solid propellant and unserviceable munitions and ordnance containing pyrotechnics, explosives, and propellants (PEP), and also including casings, containers, and other materials contaminated with PEP. The capability to treat reactive hazardous waste generated by Edwards' research development, test, and evaluation RDT&E activities onsite is critical to the RDT*E mission, since the unstable nature of the hazardous waste makes transport to other installation unsafe. The Ob/OD Units are operated and maintained by personnel from the Explosive Ordnance and Disposal (EOD) unit at Edwards. The OB/OD Units consist of an OB area and an OD area. Treatment is conducted by burning reactive hazardous waste on the ground surface using a remote electronic ignition device or detonating on the ground surface using bulk explosive as a donor charge.
