MCAS Yuma Hazardous Waste and Munitions Treatment Range Support

Nicklaus self performs the comprehensive scope of work required to ensure MCAS remains in compliance with RCRA regulations. Work performed includes development and management of the MCAS RCRA Subpart X permit, providing RCRA training in accordance with the permit, quarterly and annual sampling, quarterly and annual compliance reporting and all coordination between MCAS Yuma and the regulatory authority ADEQ. In addition to the RCRA Permit compliance services associated with the MTR, Nicklaus performs annual hazardous waste stream sampling on twenty different waste streams generated throughout the base. Hazardous Waste Stream Sampling and Analysis is performed to determine whether hazardous wastes being considered for disposal by MCAS Yuma are within the scope of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) waste disposal requirements.

As part of this project, Nicklaus prepared the project specific planning documents, including the Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP) and Work Plan in accordance with the Uniform Federal Police for Quality Assurance Project Plans (UFPQAPP); and the project Health and Safety Plan. Nicklaus developed specific Standard Operating Procedures for the complex sampling associated with the wide variety of waste streams. On an annual basis, Nicklaus performs the sampling and analysis of 127 samples from 20 different waste streams and provides disposal recommendations. Once laboratory results are received, Nicklaus conducts a usability assessment of all data; which is used in the preparation of the final Hazardous Waste Stream Sampling and Analysis Report.
