Abstract:

A sanitary storm drainage survey was conducted at Hurlburt Field 30 July to 10 August 1990. The scope of the survey was to evaluate the sanitary, and stormwater systems, and the need for a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System NPDES permit. Recommendations 1 Better shop practices could reduce Freon 12, zinc, iron, phenol, oils and greases in the sanitary sewers. 2 The CES Red Horse area could be permitted by the town of Mary Esther and could have difficulty meeting some limits placed on the permit site. 3 Improved operation and maintenance of the OW separators along with stricter monitoring can significantly reduce the amount of oils and greases in the sanitary system. 4 No pretreatment of industrial wastes would be needed or required by Federal Law at this time. 5 Small amounts of purgeable volatile halocarbons, making up solvents, thinners, and other hazardous materials were found in the storm drainage system. These amounts are in small quantities and do not present a problem, but they do indicate that industrial activities are influencing the storm drainage system. 6 Air Force LEEV is evaluating the applicability of the storm water rules for the NPDES and its applicability to AF installations.
