Alternative Management Standards for Treated Wood Waste
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The proposed project involves the adoption and implementation of statewide regulations governing alternative management standards for treated wood wastes. These regulations do not address site-specific conditions and do not require or mandate construction of new facilities or infrastructure. Generators, transporters, and other entities who will be subject to these proposed regulations will also be subject to local ordinances respecting land use.

Document Description
The proposed project involves two rulemaking processes: 1. Emergency regulations which will extend the current statutory management standards of TWW for 120 days beyond the statutory sunset date of January 1, 2007. 2. Permanent regulations which, when completed, will establish comprehensive alternative management standards for the TWW. The proposed regulations would establish alternative management standards for specified non-RCRA hazardous treated wood waste otherwise subject to California Hazardous Waste Control Law and the resultant hazardous waste management standards. Existing requirements for the management of non-RCRA hazardous treated wood waste are found in Health and Safety Code (HSC section 25150.7(e)). These requirements provide streamlined handling standards for treated wood waste. Subject to a sunset date of January 1, 2007, HSC section 25150.7 conditionally exempts generators, transporters, and other entities managing treated wood waste prior to disposal from the requirements of the hazardous waste control law.
