Abstract:

At the request of 67 Combat Support GroupDEEV the Air Force Occupational and Environmental Health Laboratory conducted a wastewater characterization and hazardous waste technical assistance survey at Bergstrom AFB BAFB from 6-15 Mar 89. The scope of the wastewater survey was to characterize the effluent exiting the base and the effluent from 23 industrial facilities and 10 food-serving facilities. The scope of the hazardous waste survey was to address hazardous waste management practices and explore opportunities for hazardous waste minimization. Specific recommendations from the survey include 1 Accompany City of Austin personnel during wastewater sampling procedures 2 Sample at the manhole exiting the main lift station rather than at the lift station wet well 3 Split wastewater samples with the City of Austin for comparison of results 4 Ensure that oilwater separators and grease traps are functioning properly and are cleaned out regularly 5 Limit the quantity of soaps and solvents discharged down the drain to the sanitary sewer 6 Establish a waste disposal contract for the removal of wastes in the Petroleum Oils and Lubricants underground storage tanks. 7 Remove, analyze, and properly dispose of oil contaminated soil from accumulation sites. 8 Move indoors or secure, cover, and berm the aluminum sign reconditioning tank at 67 Civil Engineering Squadron Protective Coating. 9 Connect 67 Combat Repair Squadron Test Cell floor drains to the sanitary sewer.
