Hazardous Materials Management and Spill Response

As part of the SWPPP or Erosion Control Plan (see WQHM-002 and WQHM-003), the Project Proponent will prepare and implement a hazardous materials management and spill response plan. The Project Proponent will ensure that any hazardous materials are stored at the staging area(s) with an impermeable membrane between the ground and hazardous material, and that the staging area is designed to prevent the discharge of pollutants to groundwater and runoff water. The Project Proponent will use and store hazardous materials, such as vehicle fuels and lubricants, in designated staging areas away from stream channels and wetlands, unless otherwise approved in the ESA Section 7(a)(2) Review Form, according to local, state, and federal regulations. The Project Proponent will notify regulatory agencies within 24 hours of any leaks or spills and will properly contain and dispose of any unused or leftover hazardous products off site. Also see GPM-010, Equipment Maintenance and Materials Storage, for more detail on spill prevention.
