Document Description
The Department of Toxic Substances Control has issued an Emergency Permit to Beale AFB to treat hazardous waste by open detonation. The item to be treated is a 155 mm M1 projectable found in the Spenceville Wildlife and Recreation Area. Beale AFB Explosive Ordnance Disposal personnel have determined that, due to its condition, the item is considered unsafe for shipment. The Emergency Permit is effective from October 28, 2010 through December 31, 2010. Treatment will be scheduled depending on weather, logistics, and availability of personnel. The treatment activities will be conducted by qualified personnel from Beale AFB. The detonation will be performed on the Beale AFB Explosive Ordinance Disposal Range. As Beale AFB does not have a permit for treatment of hazardous waste at this location, DTSC has determined that an emergency permit should be issued. The item is potential safety hazard and presents an unacceptable risk for continued storage. There is no alternative treatment available.
