U.S. EPA, MARINE CORPS SETTLE TOXIC WASTE VIOLATIONS

 U.S. EPA, MARINE CORPS SETTLE TOXIC WASTE VIOLATIONS
 SAN FRANCISCO, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) today announced the signing of a Federal Facility Compliance Agreement with the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in San Diego County to settle violations of federal hazardous waste management regulations found by U.S. EPA inspectors last year.
 The violations included failing to label and maintain hazardous waste containers, failing to provide adequate training to workers, and storing hazardous waste without a permit.
 The agreement commits Camp Pendleton to continue measures taken this year to bring its operations into full compliance with the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which governs the proper management of hazardous waste. Camp Pendleton must also certify that no hazardous waste has been stored outside permitted areas on the Base longer than 90 days, which is the limit allowed under RCRA.
 All federal facilities, including military bases, as well as state and local governments and private industry, are required to comply with RCRA regulations.
