Frequency of Hazardous Waste Tanks Self-Inspections
“…[the] interpretation of “once each operating day” in Section 265.195 (hazardous waste tanks), to mean once each day during which manufacturing operations are being conducted, conforms with EPA’s interpretation of the term. EPA’s interpretation of the term “operating day” in Section 265.226(a)(1) (surface impoundments) is that inspections must occur on every day that any waste is placed in the surface impoundment.” [To: Mr. P.E.Gerwert Manager General Motors Technical Center. From Ms. Marcia E. Williams Director US EPA Office of Solid Waste. Date: 10/16/1987 RCRA Online Number: 13063]
“We [EPA] are changing the self-inspection frequencies for tank systems from daily to weekly at permitted and interim status treatment, storage and disposal facilities, as well as for large quantity generator (LQG) tank systems that are operated under certain conditions…Daily inspections enable tank systems, subject to subpart J, to comply with the 40 CFR 264.193(c) and 265.193(c) requirements to detect leaks and spills within 24 hours.” [Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Burden Reduction Initiative. 71 FR 16862. April 4, 2006.]
