Special Provisions for Hazardous Waste and Materials Requiring Special Management or Safety Precautions

A Caltrans Standard Special Provision (SSP) is a construction contract language used when specific issues may be encountered that are not covered by the Caltrans Standard Specifications. In the construction industry they are often referred to as project-specific specifications. SSPs are needed when handling contaminants or meeting specialized hazardous waste regulatory or safety requirements.

An SSP may require editing before placing into a specific contract, however editing is only allowed in approved areas of the specification as indicated in the instructions in the hidden text. SSPs should be viewed with the "hidden text" function of your word processor turned to "on" to show editing instructions for each provision. Listed below are SSPs for the management of specific hazardous wastes and other materials requiring special management or safety precautions.
