The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has issued a variance to Regional Connector Constructors (CAL000403566) to generate and accumulate treated wood waste on-site. The applicant may transport the treated wood waste generated on-site to an authorized handler or disposal facility. The treated wood waste is generated as a result of treated wood used to secure various structure of excavations. The variance allows treated wood waste to be managed under procedures different from, but equally protective to human health and the environment to, the provisions of California Health and Safety Code (HSC) Articles 6, 6.5 and 9 of Chapter 6.5 and California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 22, Division 4.5, Chapters 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, and/or 20. Under the terms and conditions of Variance TWW-2021-LG-00618, Regional Connector Constructors will ensure the treated wood waste will be appropriately managed.
The treated wood waste management activities are part of the construction of a 1.9 mile fully underground line connecting the Metro Gold Line, Blue Line and Expo Line through Downtown Los Angeles and three new underground stations.
