Temporary Emergency Permit for Level II Emergency Response Disposal Treatment by Detonation, Naval Air Facility (NAF) Bombing Range R-2510
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
DTSC, pursuant to authority granted under, the CA Code of Regulations, Title 22, Division 4.5, Chapter 20, Section 66270.61, will issue an Emergency Permit to Naval Air Facility (NAF) located in El Centro, CA to treat hazardous waste by open detonation. The permit applicant is a Level Two Emergency Response Disposal of Items at Naval Air Facility (NAF) El Centro. The items requested to be treated by open detonation are one (1) Dud smoke grenade and one stun grenade. These items were generated for training purposes from the Naval Air Station (NAS), North Island located on the Naval Base Coronado (EPA ID CA7170090016) in San Diego, CA. These items have been determined by Explosive Ordinance and Disposal (EOD) personnel to be an explosive hazard and are currently being stored at NAS North Island in an Explosive Ordinance and Disposal (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 are no feasible alternative treatments available. NAS North Island EOD personnel have determined that the items are unstable and considered unsafe for continued storage. The items will be transported (under EOD special care and handling guidelines) to the Naval Air Facility Bombing Range R-2510 (EPA ID CA6170090017) in El Centro, CA where EOD personnel will treat by open detonation. The NAF Bombing Range in El Centro has been chosen as the closest, safest, and most appropriate location for disposal. Per NAF El Centro's 2007 Range Condition Assessment, this type of disposal by detonation is highly effective and does not adversely impact soil, groundwater, or air. The proposed detonation will be performed in a manner that minimizes potential environmental effects or impacts.
