Title: Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity of the Building 943 Tank System

Abstract

This Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity of Building 943 (B943) Tank System has been prepared using the guidelines of 40 CFR 265.192(a) and 22 CCR 66265.192(a) for tank systems* that manage hazardous waste and have secondary containment. The regulations require that this assessment be completed and certified by an independent, qualified, California-registered professional engineer. This technical assessment has been reviewed by an independent, qualified, California-registered professional engineer, who has certified the tank system for the following: • sufficient structural integrity, • acceptability for storing of hazardous waste, • compatibility with the waste, and • suitability of tank and containment system design to achieve the requirements of the applicable regulations so they will not collapse, rupture, or fail.

  • This Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity of retention tank system 321-R2 has been prepared for tank systems that store hazardous waste and have secondary containment.
  • This Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity is the response to 40 CFR 265.191 for an existing tank system that stores hazardous waste and does not have secondary containment. This technical assessment has been reviewed by an independent, qualified, California-registered professional engineer, who has certified the tank system to be adequately designed and compatible with the stored waste so that it will not collapse, rupture, or fail. This document will be kept on file at the facility.
  • This Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity of retention tank 325-I1U1 of Lawrence Livermore Laboratory has been prepared in response to 40 CFR 265.191 for an existing tank system that stores hazardous waste and does not have secondary containment. This technical assessment has been reviewed by an independent, qualified, California-registered professional engineer, who has certified the tank system to be adequately designed and compatible with the stored waste so that it will not collapse, rupture, or fail. Certification of the 325-I1U1 tank system is qualified by the fact that 40 CFR 265-193 requires that a system be upgraded to includemore » secondary containment when it reaches 15 years of age or within two years after January 12, 1987, whichever comes later. Tank 325-I1U1 was built in 1968 and required upgrading to secondary containment by January 12, 1989. This Engineering Assessment has been prepared as Best Management practice since this tank system was in service after January 12, 1989, but is not in use at this time. This document will be kept on file at the facility. Certification and documentation of the onground retention tank 325-I1O1, which is part of the 325-I1 retention tank system, is not included in this assessment. A discussion of tank 325-I1O1, however, is included in this report to provide a complete description of the 325-I1 retention tank system.« less
  • This Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity of retention tank 141-R1U1 is in response to the requirements of 40 CFR 265.191 for an existing tank system that stores hazardous waste and does not have secondary containment. This technical assessment has been reviewed by an independent, qualified, California registered professional engineer, who has certified the tank system to be adequately designed and compatible with the stored waste so that it will not collapse rupture, or fail. This document will be kept on file at the facility. Onground retention tanks 141-R1O1 and 141-R1O2, which are also part of the 141-R1 retention tankmore » system, do not have secondary containment; consequently, certification documentation for these tanks is not included in this assessment. A discussion of the onground tanks, however, is included in this report to provide a complete description of the 141-R1 retention tank system. 8 refs., 7 figs.« less
  • This Engineering Assessment and Certification of Integrity of retention tanks 177-RlUl, 177-RlAl, and 177-RlA2 has been prepared in response to 40 CFR 265.192(a) and 22 CCR 66265.192(a) for new tank systems that store hazardous waste and have secondary containment. The regulations require that this assessment be completed and certified by an independent, qualified, California-registered professional engineer before the tank system is placed in use as a hazardous waste storage tank system. The 177-RlUl, 177-RlAl, and 177-RlA2 tank systems have been reviewed by an independent, qualified, California-registered professional engineer, who has certified that the tank systems have sufficient structural integrity, aremore » acceptable for transferring and storing hazardous waste, are compatible with the stored waste, and the tanks and containment system are suitably designed to achieve the requirements of the applicable regulations so they will not collapse, rupture, or fail.« less
