Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Edwards Air Force Base (Edwards AFB) operates a base-wide hazardous waste support facility (HWSF) for the central collection of hazardous wastes prior to offsite disposal. This facility consists of one (1) Hazardous Waste Management Unit (unit) and has been in operation for 20 years. The permit to operate was renewed in May of 2005 for another 10 years. The project is to update the physical description of the HWSF and to employ new operational procedures and container management practices that will consolidate several non-RCRA hazardous waste streams. The new procedures will include bulking adsorbents/debris wastes, after removing any free liquids, which will be recycled or disposed seperately. The total volumeof non-RCRA solid waste will not change and at the same time reduce the number of containers being stored and managed within the permitted unit. THe new handling procedures will benefit both the EAFB Metal Recycling and Waste Minimization Programs.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Reasons for Exemption
General Rule (Section 15061 (b)(3)) Approval of the Permit will not result in any physical changes to the existing baseline environmental setting at or near the HWSF, nor will it change the conditions EAFB has historically complied with under the provisions of chapter 6.5 of the California Health and Safety Code and Division 4.5 of California Code of Regulations, title 22. These provisions are intended to ensure that facility operations are protective of human health and the environment. Consequently, DTSC finds that there is no possibility that approval of this project would have a significant effect on the environment.
