Section 5 11. Environmental Considerations
SECTION 5 SITE AND ROAD WORK
11. Environmental Considerations:
A. Excavation of affected soil shall be accomplished as described in the excavation Specification. The soil is contaminated with petroleum product which may be partly or entirely die fuel or gasoline.
B. Classification of affected soil for disposal purposes will be made by the OWNER using an Organic Vapor Analyzer (OVA) with flame ionization detector. Soils with vapor readings higher than 10 parts per million (ppm) for diesel as defined in Section 62-770 of the Florida Administrative Code, are excessively contaminated and will be identified by the OWNER for treatment and disposal. Affected soil must be placed on an impermeable barrier when temporarily stockpiled. All stockpile leachate or runoff must be collected for disposal in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations. Soils designated for removal and disposal shall be prepared for shipment, transported, and disposed of in accordance with the requirements of this Section.
C. Affected soils shall be processed by incineration at a state licensed facility. These soils shall be transported and disposed of in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations. The OWNER shall be responsible for all soil analyses required for transportation and disposal.
D. The OWNER shall be responsible for testing soil which has been incinerated to certify the treated soil meets applicable federal, state, and local regulations for final disposal.
FREE PETROLEUM PRODUCT
A. Some free petroleum products which may be partly or entirely diesel fuel or gasoline may be encountered during excavation or removal of affected soil. The CONTRACTOR shall remove free petroleum product, if necessary, when a separate floating phase greater than 0.10-inch thick is present as required by health and safety considerations. The free petroleum product shall be removed by skimming, pumping to an oil/water separator, or other approved methods. The CONTRACTOR shall take reasonable precautions to ensure that solids are not entrained in the pumping process.
B. Free petroleum products shall be transported and disposed by the OWNER in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations. The OWNER is responsible for any laboratory analyses required for disposal of the free petroleum products.
TRANSPORT AND DISPOSAL
A. Transport Regulations: The OWNER shall be responsible for the loading, labeling, placarding, marking, weighing, and transport of all waste materials in accordance with the Florida Department of Transportation Regulations, and U.S. Department of Transportation Regulations. The OWNER shall use only transporters that are licensed and competent to haul these wastes.
