Document Description
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), pursuant to authority granted under Chapter 6.5, Cal. Code Regs., Title 22, Section 66270.61, will issue an Emergency Permit to NAS North Island located in San Diego, California, to treat hazardous waste by open detonation. The items requested to be treated are : two (2) M116A1 Grenade Simulators (L601), one 3-inch projectile of unknown nomenclature, one MK84 MOD 1SUS, and one Signal smoke and illumination MK124 Mod0. The items were generated from Navy training on base and are determined to be an explosive hazard by authorized Explosive Ordinance and Disposal (EOD) personnel. These items are currently being stored at NAS North Island in an EOD safe holding area. As NAS North Island does not have a permit for treatment of hazardous waste at this location, DTSC has determined that an emergency permit must be issued. There is no alternative treatment available.
