Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--February 25, 2013, to March 1, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed requirements under the Risk Management Program's General Duty clause, hazardous waste containers, and the petroleum exclusion under CERCLA.
Here’s the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

Hefty Fine for RMP General Duty Clause Violations--A cold storage and ice manufacturing company was fined $225,000 for RMP violations related to its use of ammonia at facilities located in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

What is the RMP General Duty Clause? --The RMP General Duty Clause requires regulated facilities to identify hazards that may result from the release of extremely hazardous substances.

Keeping Your Hazardous Waste Containers in Good Condition--What exactly does "good condition" mean for hazardous waste container?

BMPs for Reusing Your 55-Gallon Drums--Solid waste facility personnel should be aware of the best management practices for collecting and processing 55-gallo drums, since many drums may contain, or may have contained, hazardous materials.

The Petroleum Exclusion under CERCLA--When Congress wrote the Comprehensive Emergency Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund)the decision was made decided that a CERCLA response action should not be triggered by a release of “petroleum, including crude oil or any fraction thereof.”
