Document Description
The project involves the issuance of a temporary authorization allowing Aerojet to move the propellant and explosive waste storage area from Building 03010 to Building 03006 and close the eastern half of Building 03006. The condition of the roof on Building 03010 has recently deteriorated and efforts to maintain its integrity have been unsuccessful. Because of the U.S. Department of Defence (DOD) requirements, no major repairs can be made to the roof while PEP materials are stored in the building. Aerojet does not currently have any other permitted container storage areas for PEP wastes.

Reasons for Exemption
1. The project is minor in nature and represents the modification of Building 03006 in order to meet DOD requirements and store PEP wastes in the building. 2. The proposed modifications to Building 03006 do not substantially alter the Permit conditions or reduce the ability of the facility owned and operated by Aerojet-General Corporation to protect human health or the environment. 3. Modifications to the building will be implemented in order to ensure that Building 03006 will be protective of human health and the environment and meet DOD and other regulatory requirements. 4. All modifications have been approved by the local fire marshal as meeting local fire code requirements. 5. The site is on the Hazardous Waste and Substances Sites list (January 2001) pursuant to Government Code, Section 65962.5. However, Aerojet is on this list because of improper practices in the past involving hazardous substances generated in other locations throughout this site.
