Section 122.1 Purpose and scope of Part 122.

(3) Technical regulations. The RCRA (state hazardous waste) permit program has separate additional regulations that contain technical requirements. These separate regulations are used by DNREC to determine what requirements must be placed in permits if they are issued. These separate regulations are located in Parts 264, 266, and 268 of these regulations.
(b) [Reserved]
(1) Specific inclusions. Owners and operators of certain facilities require hazardous waste permits as well as permits under other programs for certain aspects of the facility operation. Hazardous waste permits are required for:
(i) [Reserved]
(ii) Treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste at facilities requiring an NPDES permit. However, the owner and operator of a publicly owned treatment works receiving hazardous waste will be deemed to have a hazardous waste permit for that waste if they comply with the requirements of Section 122.60(c) (permit-by-rule for POTWs).
(2) Specific exclusions and exemptions. The following persons are among those who are not required to obtain a State hazardous waste permit:
(i) Generators who accumulate hazardous waste on-site in compliance with all of the conditions for exemption provided in Sections 262.14, 262.15, 262.16, and 262.17 of these regulations.
(ii) Farmers who dispose of hazardous waste pesticides from their own use as provided in Section 262.70 of these regulations;
(iii) Persons who own or operate facilities solely for the treatment, storage or disposal of hazardous waste excluded from regulations under this part by Sections 261.4 or 262.14 (very small quantity generator exemption).
(iv) Owners or operators of totally enclosed treatment facilities as defined in Section 260.10.
(v) Owners and operators of elementary neutralization units or wastewater treatment units as defined in Section 260.10.
(vi) Transporters storing manifested shipments of hazardous waste in containers meeting the requirements of Section 262.30 at a transfer facility for a period of ten days or less. See also Section 263.12.
(vii) Persons adding absorbent material to waste in a container (as defined in Section 260.10 of these regulations) and persons adding waste to absorbent material in a container, provided that these actions occur at the time waste is first placed in the container; and Sections 264.17(b), 264.171, and 264.172 of these regulations are complied with.
(viii) Universal waste handlers and universal waste transporters (as defined in Section 260.10) managing the wastes listed below. These handlers are subject to regulation under Part 273.
(A) Batteries as described in Section 273.2 of these regulations;
(B) Pesticides as described in Section 273.3 of these regulations;
(C) Mercury-containing equipment as described in Section 273.4 of these regulations;
(ix) [Reserved]
(x) Reverse distributors accumulating potentially creditable hazardous waste pharmaceuticals and evaluated hazardous waste pharmaceuticals, as defined in §266.500. Reverse distributors are subject to regulation under 40 CFR part 266 subpart P for the accumulation of potentially creditable hazardous waste pharmaceuticals and evaluated hazardous waste pharmaceuticals.
(3) Further exclusions.
(i) A person is not required to obtain a permit for treatment or containment activities taken during immediate response to any of the following situations:
(A) A discharge of a hazardous waste;
(B) An imminent and substantial threat of a discharge of hazardous waste;
(C) A discharge of a material which, when discharged, becomes a hazardous waste.
(D) An immediate threat to human health, public safety, property, or the environment from the known or suspected presence of military munitions, other explosive material, or an explosive device, as determined by an explosive or munitions emergency response specialist as defined in Section 260.10.
(ii) Any person who continues or initiates hazardous waste treatment or containment activities after the immediate response is over is subject to all applicable requirements of this part for those activities.
(iii) In the case of emergency responses involving military munitions, the responding military emergency response specialist's organizational unit must retain records for three years identifying the dates of the response, the responsible persons responding, the type and description of material addressed, and its disposition.
(4) Permits for less than an entire facility. DNREC may issue or deny a permit for one or more units at a facility without simultaneously issuing or denying a permit to all of the units at the facility. The interim status of any unit for which a permit has not been issued or denied is not affected by the issuance or denial of a permit to any other unit at the facility.
(5) Closure by removal. Owners/operators of surface impoundments, land treatment units, and waste piles closing by removal or decontamination under Part 265 standards must obtain a post-closure permit unless they can demonstrate to the Secretary that the closure met the standards for closure by removal or decontamination in Sections 264.228, 264.280(e), or 264.258, respectively. The demonstration may be made in the following ways:
(i) If the owner/operator has submitted a Part B application for a post-closure permit, the owner/operator may request a determination, based on information contained in the application, that Part 264 closure by removal standards were met. If the Secretary believes that Part 264 standards were met, he/she will notify the public of this proposed decision, allow for public comment, and reach a final determination according to the procedures in paragraph (c)(6) of this section.
(ii) If the owner/operator has not submitted a Part B application for a post-closure permit, the owner/operator may petition the Secretary for a determination that a post-closure permit is not required because the closure met the applicable Part 264 closure standards.
(A) The petition must include data demonstrating that closure by removal or decontamination standards were met, or it must demonstrate that the unit closed under State requirements that met or exceeded the applicable 264 closure-by-removal standard.
(B) The Secretary shall approve or deny the petition according to the procedures outlined in paragraph (c)(6) of this section.
(6) Procedures for closure equivalency determination.
(i) If a facility owner/operator seeks an equivalency demonstration under Section 122.1(c)(5), the Secretary will provide the public, through a newspaper notice, the opportunity to submit written comments on the information submitted by the owner/operator within 30 days from the date of the notice. The Secretary will also, in response to a request or at his/her own discretion, hold a public hearing whenever such a hearing might clarify one or more issues concerning the equivalence of the Part 265 closure to a Part 264 closure. The Secretary will give public notice of the hearing at least 30 days before it occurs. (Public notice of the hearing may be given at the same time as notice of the opportunity for the public to submit written comments, and the two notices may be combined.)
(ii) The Secretary will determine whether the Part 265 closure met 264 closure by removal or decontamination requirements within 90 days of its receipt. If the Secretary finds that the closure did not meet the applicable Part 264 standards, he/she will provide the owner/operator with a written statement of the reasons why the closure failed to meet Part 264 standards. The owner/operator may submit additional information in support of an equivalency demonstration within 30 days after receiving such written statement. The Secretary will review any additional information submitted and make a final determination within 60 days.
(iii) If the Secretary determines that the facility did not close in accordance with Part 264 closure by removal standards, the facility is subject to post-closure permitting requirements.
(7) Enforceable documents for post‑closure care. At the discretion of the Secretary, an owner or operator may obtain, in lieu of a post‑closure permit, an enforceable document imposing the requirements of Section 265.121. “Enforceable document” means an order, a plan, or other document issued by EPA or by an authorized State under an authority that meets the requirements of 40 CFR, 271.16(e) including, but not limited to, a corrective action order issued by EPA under Section 3008(h) or DNREC under 7 Del.C., Chapter 63, a CERCLA remedial action, or a closure or post‑closure plan.

(ii) If the facility is proposed to be located in an area listed in Appendix VI of Part 264, the owner or operator shall demonstrate compliance with the seismic standard. This demonstration may be made using either published geologic data or data obtained from field investigations carried out by the applicant. The information provided must be of such quality to be acceptable to geologists experienced in identifying and evaluating seismic activity. The information submitted must show that either;
(A) No faults which have had displacement in Holocene time are present, or no lineations which suggest the presence of a fault (which have displacement in Holocene time) within 3,000 feet of a facility are present, based on data from:
(1) Published geologic studies,
(2) Aerial reconnaissance of the area within a five‑mile radius from the facility,

Information shall also be provided identifying the 100‑year flood level and any other special flooding factors (e.g., wave action) which must be considered in designing, construction, operating, or maintaining the facility to with stand washout from as 100‑year flood.
[Comment: Where maps for the National Flood Insurance Program produced by the Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) of the Federal Emergency Management Agency are available, they will normally be determinative of whether a facility is located within or outside of the 100‑year flood plain. However, where the FIA map excludes an area (usually areas of the floodplain less that 200 feet in width), the areas must be considered and a determination made as to whether they are in the 100‑year floodplain. Where FIA maps are not available for a proposed facility location, the owner or operator must use equivalent mapping techniques to determine whether the facility is within the 100‑year floodplain, and if so located, what the 100‑year flood elevation would be.]

(1) The Secretary may issue a two‑phase facility permit if he finds that, based on information submitted in Part B of the application, substantial, although incomplete or inconclusive, information already exists upon which to base the issuance of a facility permit.
(2) If the Secretary finds that not enough information exists upon which he can establish permit conditions to attempt to provide for compliance with all of the requirements of Subpart M, he must issue a treatment demonstration permit covering only the field test or laboratory analyses.
(b) If the Secretary finds that a phased permit may be issued, he will establish, as requirements in the first phase of the facility permit, conditions for conducting the field tests or laboratory analyses. These permit conditions will include design and operating parameters (including the duration of the tests or analyses and, in the case of field tests, the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the treatment zone), monitoring procedures, post‑demonstration clean‑up activities, and any other conditions which the Secretary finds may be necessary under Section 264.272(c). The Secretary will include conditions in the second phase of the facility permit to attempt to meet all Subpart M requirements pertaining to unit design, construction, operation, and maintenance. The Secretary will establish these conditions in the second phase of the permit based upon the substantial but incomplete or inconclusive information contained in the Part B application.
(1) The first phase of the permit will be effective as provided in Section 124.15(b) of these regulations.
(2) The second phase of the permit will effective as provided in paragraph (c) of this section.
(c) When the owner or operator who has been issued a two‑phase permit has completed the treatment demonstration, he must submit to the Secretary a certification, signed by a person authorized to sign a permit application or report under Section 122.11, that the field tests or laboratory analyses have been carried out in accordance with the conditions specified in phase one of the permit for conducting such tests or analyses. The owner or operator must also submit all data collected during the field tests or laboratory analyses within 90 days of completion of those tests or analyses unless the Secretary approves a later date.
(d) If the Secretary determines that the results of the field tests or laboratory analyses meet the requirements of Section 264.272 of these regulations, he will modify the second phase of the permit to incorporate any requirements necessary for operation of the facility in compliance with Part 264, Subpart M, of these regulations, based upon the results of the field tests or laboratory analyses.
(1) This permit modification may proceed under Section 122.42, or otherwise will proceed as a modification under Section 122.41(a)(2). If such modifications are necessary, the second phase of the permit will become effective only after those modifications have been made.
(2) If no modifications of the second phase of the permit are necessary, the Secretary will give notice of his final decision to the permit applicant and to each person who submitted written comments on the phased permit or who requested notice of the final decision on the second phase of the permit. The second phase of the permit then will become effective as specified in Section 124.15(b).

Section 122.70 Qualifying for Interim Status.

(a) Any person who owns or operates an "existing HWM facility" or a facility in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under 7 Del.C., Chapter 63 that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a Hazardous Waste permit shall have interim status and shall be treated as having been issued a permit to the extent he or she has:
(1) Complied with the requirements of 7 Del.C., Section Section 6304, 6306, and 6307 pertaining to notification of hazardous waste activity.
[Comment: Some existing facilities may not be required to file a notification under 7 Del.C., Section Section 6304, 6306, and 6307. These facilities may qualify for interim status by meeting paragraph (a)(2) of this section.]
(2) Complied with the requirements of Section 122.10 governing submission of Part A applications;
(b) When DNREC determines on examination or re‑examination of a Part A application that it fails to meet the standards of these regulations, it may notify the owner or operator that the application is deficient and that the owner or operator is therefore not entitled to interim status. The owner or operator will then be subject to DNREC enforcement for operating without a permit.
(c) Paragraph (a) of this section shall not apply to any facility which has been previously denied a hazardous waste permit or if authority to operate the facility under 7 Del.C., Chapter 63 has been previously terminated.

Section 122.71 Operation during interim status.

(a) During the interim status period the facility shall not:
(1) Treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste not specified in Part A of the permit application;
(2) Employ processes not specified in Part A of the permit application; or
(3) Exceed the design capacities specified in Part A of the permit application.
(b) Interim status standards. During interim status, owners or operators shall comply with the interim status standards at Part 265.

Section 122.72 Changes during interim status.

(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b), the owner or operator of an interim status facility may make the following changes at the facility:
(1) Treatment, storage, or disposal of new hazardous wastes not previously identified in Part A of the permit application (and, in the case of newly listed or identified wastes, addition of the units being used to treat, store, or dispose of the hazardous wastes on the effective date of the listing or identification) if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application prior to such treatment, storage, or disposal;
(2) Increases in the design capacity of processes used at the facility if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application prior to such a change (along with a justification explaining the need for the change) and the Secretary approves the changes because:
(i) There is a lack of available treatment, storage, or disposal capacity at other hazardous waste management facilities, or
(ii) The change is necessary to comply with a Federal, State, or local requirement.
(3) Changes in the processes for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste or addition of processes if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application prior to such change (along with a justification explaining the need for the change) and the Secretary approves the change because:
(i) The change is necessary to prevent a threat to human health and the environment because of an emergency situation, or
(ii) The change is necessary to comply with a Federal, State, or local requirement.
(4) Changes in the ownership or operational control of a facility if the new owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application no later than 90 days prior to the scheduled change. When a transfer of operational control of a facility occurs, the old owner or operator shall comply with the requirements of 40 CFR Part 265, Subpart H (Financial Requirements), until the new owner or operator has demonstrated to the Secretary that he is complying with the requirements of that subpart. The new owner or operator must demonstrate compliance with subpart H requirements within six months of the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility. Upon demonstration to the Secretary by the new owner or operator of compliance with Subpart H, the Secretary shall notify the old owner or operator in writing that he no longer needs to comply with Subpart H as of the date of demonstration. All other interim status duties are transferred effective immediately upon the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility.
(5) Changes made in accordance with an interim status corrective action order issued by EPA under RCRA Section 3008(h) or other Federal authority, by 7 Del. C., Chapter 63, or by a court in a judicial action by EPA or by the State of Delaware. Changes under this paragraph are limited to the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste from releases that originate within the boundary of the facility.
(6) Addition of newly regulated units for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application on or before the date on which the unit becomes subject to the new requirements.
(b) Except as specifically allowed under this paragraph, changes listed under paragraph (a) of this section may not be made if they amount to reconstruction of the hazardous waste management facility. Reconstruction occurs when the capital investment in the changes to the facility exceeds 50 percent of the capital cost of a comparable entirely new hazardous waste management facility. If all other requirements are met, the following changes may be made even if they amount to a reconstruction:
(1) Changes made solely for the purposes of complying with the requirements of Section 265.193 for tanks and ancillary equipment.
(2) If necessary to comply with Federal, State, or local requirements, changes to an existing unit, changes solely involving tanks or containers, or addition of replacement surface impoundments that satisfy the standards of Section 3004(o).
(3) Changes that are necessary to allow owners or operators to continue handling newly listed or identified hazardous wastes that have been treated, stored, or disposed of at the facility prior to the effective date of the rule establishing the new listing or identification.
(4) Changes during closure of a facility or of a unit within a facility made in accordance with an approved closure plan.
(5) Changes necessary to comply with an interim status corrective action order issued by EPA under RCRA Section 3008(h) or other Federal authority, by 7 Del.C., Chapter 63, or by a court in a judicial proceeding brought by EPA or by the State of Delaware, provided that such changes are limited to the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste from releases that originate within the boundary of the facility.
(6) Changes to treat or store, in tanks, containers, or containment buildings, hazardous wastes subject to land disposal restrictions imposed by Part 268 of these regulations or 7 Del.C., Section 6307, provided that such changes are made solely for the purposes of complying with Part 268 of these regulations or 7 Del.C., Section 6307.
(7) Addition of newly regulated units under paragraph (a)(6) of this section.
(8) Changes necessary to comply with standards under 40 CFR, Part 63, Subpart EEE -- National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants From Hazardous Waste Combustors.

Section 122.74 ‑ 122.78 [Reserved]

Section 122.79 Why is this subpart written in a special format?

General Information

Section 122.80 What is a RAP?

(a) A RAP is a special form of hazardous waste permit that you, as an owner or operator, may obtain, instead of a permit issued under Section Section 122.3 through 122.66, to authorize you to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous remediation waste (as defined in Section 260.10 of these regulations) at a remediation waste management site. A RAP may only be issued for the area of contamination where the remediation wastes to be managed under the RAP originated, or areas in close proximity to the contaminated area, except as allowed in limited circumstances under Section 122.230.
(b) The requirements in Section Section 122.3 through 122.66 do not apply to RAPs unless those requirements for traditional hazardous waste permits are specifically required under Section Section 122.80 through 122.230. The definitions in Section 122.2 apply to RAPs.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this part or Part 124 of these regulations, any document that meets the requirements in this section constitutes a hazardous waste permit under 7 Del. C., Chapter 63.
(d) A RAP may be:
(1) A stand-alone document that includes only the information and conditions required by this subpart; or
(2) Part (or parts) of another document that includes information and/or conditions for other activities at the remediation waste management site, in addition to the information and conditions required by this subpart.
(e) If you are treating, storing, or disposing of hazardous remediation wastes as part of a cleanup compelled by Federal or State cleanup authorities, your RAP does not affect your obligations under those authorities in any way.
(f) If you receive a RAP at a facility operating under interim status, the RAP does not terminate your interim status.

Section 122.85 When do I need a RAP?

(a) Whenever you treat, store, or dispose of hazardous remediation wastes in a manner that requires a hazardous waste permit under Section 122.1, you must either obtain:
(1) A hazardous waste permit according to Section Section 122.3 through 122.66; or
(2) A RAP according to this subpart.
(b) Treatment units that use combustion of hazardous remediation wastes at a remediation waste management site are not eligible for RAPs under this subpart.
(c) You may obtain a RAP for managing hazardous remediation waste at an already permitted hazardous waste facility. You must have these RAPs approved as a modification to your existing permit according to the requirements of Section 122.41 or Section 122.42 instead of the requirements in this subpart. When you submit an application for such a modification, however, the information requirements in Section 122.42(a)(1)(i), (b)(1)(iv), and (c)(1)(iv) do not apply; instead, you must submit the information required under Section 122.110. When your permit is modified the RAP becomes part of the hazardous waste permit. Therefore when your permit (including the RAP portion) is modified, revoked and reissued, terminated or when it expires, it will be modified according to the applicable requirements in Section Section 122.40 through 122.42, revoked and reissued according to the applicable requirements in Section Section 122.41 and 122.43, terminated according to the applicable requirements in Section 122.43, and expire according to the applicable requirements in Section Section 122.50 and 122.51.

Section 122.95 How do I apply for a RAP?

Section 122.100 Who must obtain a RAP?

Section 122.105 Who must sign the application and any required reports for a RAP?

Section 122.110 What must I include in my application for a RAP?

(a) The name, address, and EPA identification number of the remediation waste management site;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the owner and operator;
(c) The latitude and longitude of the site;
(d) The United States Geological Survey (USGS) or county map showing the location of the remediation waste management site;
(e) A scaled drawing of the remediation waste management site showing:

(a) If the Secretary tentatively finds that your RAP application includes all of the information required by Section 122.110 and that your proposed remediation waste management activities meet the regulatory standards, the Secretary will make a tentative decision to approve your RAP application. The Secretary will then prepare a draft RAP and provide an opportunity for public comment before making a final decision on your RAP application, according to this subpart.
(b) If the Secretary tentatively finds that your RAP application does not include all of the information required by Section 122.110 or that your proposed remediation waste management activities do not meet the regulatory standards, the Secretary may request additional information from you or ask you to correct deficiencies in your application. If you fail or refuse to provide any additional information the Secretary requests, or to correct any deficiencies in your RAP application, the Secretary may make a tentative decision to deny your RAP application. After making this tentative decision, the Secretary will prepare a notice of intent to deny your RAP application (“notice of intent to deny”) and provide an opportunity for public comment before making a final decision on your RAP application, according to the requirements in this Subpart. The Secretary may deny the RAP application either in its entirety or in part.

Any person who did not file comments, or did not participate in any public hearing(s) on the draft RAP, may petition for administrative review only to the extent of the changes from the draft to the final RAP decision. Appeals of RAPs may be made pursuant to 7 Del. C., Section 6312. The Secretary will give public notice of any grant of review of RAPs by the DNREC Environmental Appeals Board through the same means used to provide notice under Section 122.145. The notice will include:

Section 122.165 When may I begin physical construction of new units permitted under the RAP?

Section 122.170 After my RAP is issued, how may it be modified, revoked and reissued, or terminated?

Section 122.175 For what reasons may the Secretary choose to modify my final RAP?

(a) The Secretary may modify your final RAP on his own initiative only if one or more of the following reasons listed in this section exist(s). If one or more of these reasons do not exist, then the Secretary will not modify your final RAP, except at your request. Reasons for modification are:
(1) You made material and substantial alterations or additions to the activity that justify applying different conditions;
(2) The Secretary finds new information that was not available at the time of RAP issuance and would have justified applying different RAP conditions at the time of issuance;
(3) The standards or regulations on which the RAP was based have changed because of new or amended statutes, standards or regulations, or by judicial decision after the RAP was issued;
(4) If your RAP includes any schedules of compliance, the Secretary may find reasons to modify your compliance schedule, such as an act of God, strike, flood, or materials shortage or other events over which you as the owner/operator have little or no control and for which there is no reasonably available remedy;
(5) You are not in compliance with conditions of your RAP;
(6) You failed in the application or during the RAP issuance process to disclose fully all relevant facts, or you misrepresented any relevant facts at the time;
(7) The Secretary has determined that the activity authorized by your RAP endangers human health or the environment and can only be remedied by modifying; or

(b) Notwithstanding any other provision in this section, when the Secretary reviews a RAP for a land disposal facility under Section 122.195, he may modify the permit as necessary to assure that the facility continues to comply with the currently applicable requirements in Parts 124, 260 through 266 and 122 of these regulations.
(c) The Secretary will not reevaluate the suitability of the facility location at the time of RAP modification unless new information or standards indicate that a threat to human health or the environment exists that was unknown when the RAP was issued.

Section 122.180 For what reasons may the Secretary choose to revoke and reissue my final RAP?

(a) The Secretary may revoke and reissue your final RAP on his own initiative only if one or more reasons for revocation and reissuance exist(s). If one or more reasons do not exist, then the Secretary will not modify or revoke and reissue your final RAP, except at your request. Reasons for modification or revocation and reissuance are the same as the reasons listed for RAP modifications in Section 122.175(a)(5) through (8) if the Secretary determines that revocation and reissuance of your RAP is appropriate.
(b) The Secretary will not reevaluate the suitability of the facility location at the time of RAP revocation and reissuance, unless new information or standards indicate that a threat to human health or the environment exists that was unknown when the RAP was issued.

Section 122.185 For what reasons may the Secretary choose to terminate my final RAP, or deny my renewal application?

Section 122.190 May the decision to approve or deny a modification, revocation and reissuance, or termination of my RAP be administratively appealed?

(a) Any commenter on the modification, revocation and reissuance or termination, or any person who participated in any hearing(s) on these actions, may appeal the Secretary's decision to approve a modification, revocation and reissuance, or termination of your RAP, according to Section 122.155.

(b) Any commenter on the modification, revocation and reissuance or termination, or any person who participated in any hearing(s) on these actions, may informally appeal the Secretary's decision to deny a request for modification, revocation and reissuance, or termination to DNREC's Environmental Appeals Board. Any person who did not file comments, or did not participate in any public hearing(s) on the modification, revocation and reissuance or termination may petition for administrative review only of the changes from the draft to the final RAP decision.
(c) The process for informal appeals of RAPs is as follows:
(1) The person appealing the decision must send a letter to the Environmental Appeals Board. The letter must briefly set forth the relevant facts.
(2) The Environmental Appeals Board has 60 days after receiving the letter to act on it.
(3) If the Environmental Appeals Board does not take action on the letter within 60 days after receiving it, the appeal shall be considered denied.
(d) This informal appeal is a prerequisite to seeking judicial review of these DNREC actions.

Section 122.195 When will my RAP expire?

Section 122.200 How may I renew my RAP if it is expiring?

Section 122.205 What happens if I have applied correctly for a RAP renewal but have not received approval by the time my old RAP expires?

Section 122.210 What records must I maintain concerning my RAP?

(a) All data used to complete RAP applications and any supplemental information that you submit for a period of at least 3 years from the date the application is signed; and
(b) Any operating and/or other records the Secretary requires you to maintain as a condition of your RAP.

Section 122.215 How are time periods in the requirements in this subpart and my RAP computed?

(a) Any time period scheduled to begin on the occurrence of an act or event must begin on the day after the act or event. (For example, if your RAP specifies that you must close a staging pile within 180 days after the operating term for that staging pile expires, and the operating term expires on June 1, then June 2 counts as day one of your 180 days, and you would have to complete closure by November 28.)
(b) Any time period scheduled to begin before the occurrence of an act or event must be computed so that the period ends on the day before the act or event. (For example, if you are transferring ownership or operational control of your site, and wish to transfer your RAP, the new owner or operator must submit a revised RAP application no later than 90 days before the scheduled change. Therefore, if you plan to change ownership on January 1, the new owner/operator must submit the revised RAP application no later than October 3, so that the 90th day would be December 31.)
(c) If the final day of any time period falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the time period must be extended to the next working day. (For example, if you wish to appeal the Secretary's decision to modify your RAP, then you must petition the Environmental Appeals Board within 30 days after the Secretary has issued the final RAP decision. If the 30th day falls on Sunday, then you may submit your appeal by the Monday after. If the 30th day falls on July 4th, then you may submit your appeal by July 5th.)
(d) Whenever a party or interested person has the right to or is required to act within a prescribed period after the service of notice or other paper upon him by mail, 3 days must be added to the prescribed term.

Section 122.220 How may I transfer my RAP to a new owner or operator?

(a) If you wish to transfer your RAP to a new owner or operator, you must follow the requirements specified in your RAP for RAP modification to identify the new owner or operator, and incorporate any other necessary requirements. These modifications do not constitute “significant” modifications for purposes of Section 122.170. The new owner/operator must submit a revised RAP application no later than 90 days before the scheduled change along with a written agreement containing a specific date for transfer of RAP responsibility between you and the new permittees.
(b) When a transfer of ownership or operational control occurs, you as the old owner or operator must comply with the applicable requirements in Part 264, Subpart H (Financial Requirements), of these regulations until the new owner or operator has demonstrated that he is complying with the requirements in that subpart. The new owner or operator must demonstrate compliance with Part 264, Subpart H, of these regulations within six months of the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility or remediation waste management site. When the new owner/operator demonstrates compliance with Part 264, Subpart H, of these regulations to the Secretary, the Secretary will notify you that you no longer need to comply with Part 264, Subpart H, of these regulations as of the date of demonstration.

Section 122.225 What must the State or EPA Region report about noncompliance with RAPs?

Section 122.230 May I perform remediation waste management activities under a RAP at a location removed from the area where the remediation wastes originated?

(a) You may request a RAP for remediation waste management activities at a location removed from the area where the remediation wastes originated if you believe such a location would be more protective than the contaminated area or areas in close proximity.
(b) If the Secretary determines that an alternative location, removed from the area where the remediation waste originated, is more protective than managing remediation waste at the area of contamination or areas in close proximity, then the Secretary may approve a RAP for this alternative location.
(c) You must request the RAP, and the Secretary will approve or deny the RAP, according to the procedures and requirements in this subpart.
(d) A RAP for an alternative location must also meet the following requirements, which the Secretary must include in the RAP for such locations:
(1) The RAP for the alternative location must be issued to the person responsible for the cleanup from which the remediation wastes originated;
(2) The RAP is subject to the expanded public participation requirements in Section Section 124.31, 124.32, and 124.33 of these regulations;
(3) The RAP is subject to the public notice requirements in Section 124.10(c) of these regulations;
(4) The site permitted in the RAP may not be located within 61 meters or 200 feet of a fault which has had displacement in the Holocene time (you must demonstrate compliance with this standard through the requirements in Section 122.14(b)(11)) (See definitions of terms in Section 264.18(a) of these regulations);

Section 122.230

(e) These alternative locations are remediation waste management sites, and retain the following benefits of remediation waste management sites:
(1) Exclusion from facility-wide corrective action under Section 264.101 of these regulations; and
(2) Application of Section 264.1(j) of these regulations in lieu of Part 264, Subparts B, C, and D, of these regulations.
