Liquid Hazardous Waste

Hazardous wastes, drums, and tanks of unknown origins and concentrations are typically not sampled by AEM because the sample operations are inherently dangerous to the personnel involved. Drums and tanks are occasionally sampled when the primary constituents are known and do not present a toxic, fire, or explosion hazard.

If drum tank or pit sampling is undertaken, it is performed according to the EPA Region IV SOP and QAM, Sections 4.12.3 and 4.12.4, revised February 1991.

Sediment ponds are required for landfills. Where ponds have aboveground embankments, the embankments must be kept clear of trees to prevent root tunnels.
