Abstract : Problems areas include the following: (1) Toxic/hazardous wastes are being stored in excess of the 90 days allowable. (2) Wastewater discharges from the steam cleaning operation (Bldg. 601) and the wash rack (Bldg. 82) enter stormwater drainages and have not been permitted. (3) The disposal of wipe rags contaminated with toxic wastes along with nonhazardous solid waste is in violation. (4) The mixing of carbon tetrachloride with waste oil makes the resulting mixture a hazardous waste. (5) While the use of carbon tetrachloride as a degreasing agent by the Directorate of Industrial Operations motor pool is allowed by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health/Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, nonhazardous substitute solvents are available (NIOSH/OSHA, 1978).
