   A.  RCRA

    1.   Land Disposal Ban of Solvents

    Section 3004(e) of RCRA as amended by the Hazardous and  Solid Waste  Amendments
    of 1984 (HSWA) prohibited the land disposal of certain hazardous wastes by
    specific dates unless the Administrator determines that  the  prohibition is
    not required  in order to protect human health and  the environment  for as
    long as the waste remains hazardous.  The first group of wastes to be affected
    include "those hazardous wastes numbered F001, F002,  F003, F004, and F005
    in regulations promulgated by the Administrator under Section 3001 (40 CFR
    261.31 (July  1, 1983)), as those regulations are in effect on July 1983."

    EPA proposed  regulations on January 14,  1986 (51 FJ? 1602), for the implanen-
    tation of HSWA Section 3004(e).   Proposed 40 CFR 268.30  addresses  the prohi-
    bition on land disposal of solvent wastes and lists as prohibited, with
    certain exceptions, the wastes numbered F001,  F002,  F003, F004, and  F005  as
    those listings were amended and expanded to include mixtures or blends on
    December 31,  1985, (50 FR 53315).   How does EPA have the authority to use
    the expanded  solvent listings for the prohibition  when the statute specifies
    that the prohibition applies to the solvent listings as  the  solvent  listings
    as they were  in effect on July 1,  1983?

       Section 3004(e) of RCRA as amended by HSWA specifies that the earliest land
       disposal prohibition applies to the solvent listings as they were in effect
       on July 1, 1983.  The universe of solvent wastes covered by those listings in
       1983 is proposed to be restricted from land disposal under the authority of
       that section.  Section 3004(g)(4) of RCRA as amended requires the Administrator
       to make a determination concerning the prohibition on land disposal of "any
       new waste identified or listed under Section 3001 after the date of enactment"
       of HSWA within six months after the date of such identification or listing.
       Since the expanded solvent listings promulgated on December 31, 1985, (50 FR
       53315) list new solvent blends or mixtures as hazardous wastes after the date
       of enactment of HSWA (November 8, 1984), EPA is required to make a determination
       concerning the prohibition on land disposal of these newly listed wastes within
       six months of listing.  The universe of solvent wastes not covered by F001-5
       listings on July 1, 1983, but included in the proposed §268.30 land disposal
       restrictions is proposed under the authority of §3004(g)(4) of RCRA as amended
       by HSWA.

2.  The Qnnibus Provision and Permits

    An interim status landfill contains reactive hazardous waste (D003).  The land-
    fill is a regulated unit because it accepted hazardous waste after July 26, 1982.
    Since it is a regulated unit, the landfill is subject to 40 CFR 264 post-closure
    standards.  EPA enforces 40 CFR 264 post-closure standards by issuing a post-
    closure permit.  Prior to closure, the waste at the facility will be treated
    until it no longer exhibits the characteristic of reactivity.  The permit writer
    is concerned that during the post-closure period, waste residues will be reduced
    anaerobically to the point where the material would again exhibit the characteris-
    tic of reactivity.  The permit writer wants to require the owner of the site to
    perform hydrogen sulfide gas monitoring and sulfide detection during the post-
    closure period to measure the rate of anaerobic reactions.  Can these monitoring
    requirements be included in the post-closure permit?

       Yes;  the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA) significantly
       increased the authority of the EPA when writing permits by adding an "omnibus
       provision" to the Solid Waste Disposal Act (§3005(c)(3)).  This provision
       states that "[ejach permit issued under this section shall contain such terms
       and conditions as the Administrator (or the State) determines necessary to
       protect hunan health and the environment."  The final codification rule
       published in the July 15, 1985 Federal Register (50 FR 28702) incorporated
       the statutory provision into 40 CFR 270.32(b)(2) of the regulations.  This
       provision gives permit writers the authority to impose permit standards in
       addition to applicable permit standards found in 40 CFR 264, as long as the
       permit writer can justify the need for the additional standards in terms of
       protection of hunan health and the environment.  Additional standards can be
       justified by basing the standards on such sources as documented studies,
       expert opinions, and published articles.

3.  Specification Used oil Fuel

    The final rule for the burning and marketing of used oil fuel was published
    in the November 29, 1985 Federal Register (50 FR 49164).  The preamble
    (example 3.A.  on page 49199) explains that a marketer who blends off-speci-
    fication used oil fuel to meet specifications must only keep records of the
    facility to which the specification fuel is first sent.  What happens if
    the first facility to receive the specification fuel does not burn it,
    but markets it to someone else? Is that subsequent marketer regulated?

       The marketer who first claims that the used oil fuel meets specification
       must keep records of the analysis (or other information) and records of
       each shipment including the name and address of the receiving facility,
       the shipment date, and the quantity shipped, according to 40 CFR 266.43
       (b)(6).  The marketer (as burner) who receives the specification used
       oil fuel shipment is not regulated by Part 266 Subpart E, per §266.43(a)
       (2).  He is not required to notify EPA of his waste as-fuel activities,
       analyze the oil, or keep records.  If, however, the subsequent marketer
       mixes the specification used oil with off-specification used oil or
       with hazardous waste, he becomes subject to regulation as a marketer of
       used oil or1 hazardous waste fuel.

4.  Fossil Fuel Combustion Waste Exclusion

    A coal combustion process produces a mixture of fly ash and bottom ash, a
    waste that is deemed non-hazardous in 40 CFR §261.4(b)(4).  When quench
    water comes in contact with the ash to cool it, the water sometimes becomes
    alkaline to the point of corrosivity.  A pipeline transfers this mixture to
    a dewatering facility, and the dewatered ash is placed on a truck.  Is this
    corrosive quench water a hazardous waste, even though it is from an excluded

       Fly ash, bottom ash, slag and flue gas emission control wastes generated
       primarily from the burning of fossil fuels are exempt from hazardous
       waste regulation under RCRA according to 40 CFR S261.4(b)(4) and Section
       3001(b)(3) (A)(i) of RCRA.  The quench water beccnes corrosive solely as
       a result of contact with the ash.  Because the hazardous waste charac-
       teristic of the quench water is derived from an exempt waste, the resul-
       ting corrosive quench water retains the exempt status of that waste.  In
       other words, whatever makes the water corrosive is already exempt, so the
       water is also exempt from regulation as a hazardous waste.

5.  Definition of Solid and Hazardous Waste

    Section 261.2(e)(1}(i) was promulgated on January 4, 1985, (50 FR 664) as
    part of the new definition of solid waste.  It states that materials are not
    solid wastes when they can be shown to be recycled by being used or reused
    as ingredients in an industrial process to make a product, provided the
    materials are not being reclaimed.  This is significant because materials
    that are not solid wastes per §261.2(e)(1)(i) are not hazardous wastes, and
    therefore, are not subject to RCRA regulations.

    A chemical manufacturing plant generates spent sulfuric acid.  The spent acid
    is reintroduced into the production process, where it is decomposed into its
    constituents (e.g., 502).  These constituents can then be used to produce
    more sulfuric acid.  Would the process of reintroduction and decomposition
    constitute reclamation, thus precluding the plant from the exemption?

         Spent sulfuric acid is frequently used as a feedstock in the production
         of virgin sulfuric acid.  Accordingly, EPA has promulgated a specific
         exclusion stating that spent sulfuric acid recycled in this way is not
         a solid waste (§261.4(a)(7)).  The recycling process more closely resembles
         a manufacturing operation than a reclamation process.  Note that:  (1)
         spent sulfuric acid is subject to the speculative accumulation provisions,
         as defined in §261.1 (c);  and (2) the spent acid would be a hazardous
         waste if disposed (assuming it is corrosive or exhibits another hazardous
         waste characteristic) and could be a hazardous waste if recycled in
         sane other manner (see the January 4, 1985 Federal Register (50 FR 642)).

6.  Liability Requirements

    According to §265.147(a)(1)(ii), insurance policies held by owners/operators
    of hazardous waste facilities must be issued by an insurer which, at a r -limum,
    is licensed to transact the business of insurance, or eligible to prova
    insurance as an excess or surplus lines insurer in one or more States,  under
    what circunstances, if any, would an off-shore (foreign) entity be able to
    provide insurance for a domestic treatment, storage, or disposal facility

          Under Federal RCRA requirements, facilities must be insured by a company
          that is licensed in one or more States.  The company need not be licensed
          in the State in which the facility is located, unless stricter State
          regulations require in-State licensing.  The facility owner/operator
          should verify the qualifications of a company by first contacting the
          insurer about its licenses and then confirming with insurance regulatory
          authorities of the appropriate State or States.

          Regarding the off-shore entity, any captive or alien insurers must meet
          the above requirements in order to provide insurance satisfying the
          Subpart H regulations.  See SW-961, "Liability Coverage:  Requirements
          for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal
          Facilities: A Guidance manual," dated November 1982 (pages II-3 and G-3).

    Hazardous Substance Releases

    A reportabl« quantity (RQ) of a hazardous substance, as defined in Section 101(14)
    of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act
    (CERCLA), is spilled on the ground and cleaned up.  The hazardous substance is
    not a RCRA-regulated hazardous waste because it does not exhibit a characteristic
    of hazardous waste (before or after the spill) nor is ic listed in §§261.31-33.
    Can the person responsible for the spill send the material for disposal in a
    municipal landfill? Does this disposal constitute a "release" for which notification
    under CERCIA is required?

    Under RCRA, a hazardous substance which is not a RCRA hazardous waste may be
    disposed in a municipal landfill in accordance with State or local solid waste
    regulations.  However, disposing of a CERCLA hazardous substance in a municipal
    landfill does constitute a "release"  under §101(22) of CERCLA.  In this case,
    the release would be reportable under §103(a) of CERCLA since a reportable quantity
    is disposed (i.e., released) into the municipal landfill.  The person in charge
    of the facility from which the substance is released (i.e., the disposer) must
    notify the National Response Center (NEC) as scon as he has knowledge that an RQ
    has been released.  The "facility" fron which there is a reportable release in
    this case would normally be the vehicle from which the waste is discharged into
    the landfill.

    Thus, the relevant "person in charge" who must report the release would be the
    person responsible for the waste disposal operations of the vehicle, which may
    be the waste generator, the landfill operator, or the transporter, depending
    upon the facts in each situation.

2.  Releases to POTW's

    A production facility spills a hazardous substance listed in 40 CFR 302.4.  This
    substance goes into a drain through a sewer to a Publicly Owned Treatment Works
    (PCTW).  The PCTW does not have a program approved under Sections 402 or 307(b)
    or (c) of the Clean Water Act (CWA).

    a) Is the release of a hazardous substance into a sewer considered a "release
       into the environment?"

    b) If the release is "into the environment," is it a federally permitted release?

       Because a sewer is not a totally enclosed structure, a hazardous substance
       which is spilled into a sewer is considered a "release into the environment."

       The release may or may not be federally permitted depending on whether the
       release exceeds the facility's pre-treatment standards of Section 307(b) or
       (c) of CWA and whether the POTW has a program approved under Section 402 of
       the CWA.  In this case, the PCTW does not have an approved program;  therefore,
       the release is not federally permitted.  If the amount of substance spilled
       exceeds its reportable quantity as described in Section 302.4, the facility
       owner/operator must notify the National Response Center as required by
       Section 302.6.
