Q1) This project has 12 different locations where yellow thermoplastic is to be removed. Will we be required to take a minimum of four samples from each bridge deck, or will four random samples from the total job suffice?
A1) Four samples from each location are required. 19Mar11.
Q2) After removal, the potentially hazardous waste is to be stored in a secured location in sealed drums while awaiting test results. It cannot be transported until tested and an EPA number is given. Does this mean that we must create 12 secure storage locations for materials being tested?
A2) Material that is collected within a ten day time period may be combined and stored in a fenced area with a gate. All material must be labeled as to specific source(s). Waste must be in metal drums on a pallet and moved within 90 days from the first day material began being deposited in drum. 19Mar11.
