Document Description
DTSC has issued an Emergency Permit to Beale AFB to treat hazardous waste by open detonation. The item to be treated is: One M-11 Parachute Red Star Aircraft Signal Flare. The item was recovered by Beale AFB personnel. The 9th Civil Engineer Squadron, Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) Flight (9 CES/CED) has determined that, due to its condition, the item is considered unsafe for shipment to a treatment facility. 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 a potential safety hazard and presents an unacceptable risk for continued storage. There is no alternative treatment available.
