(a) Delay of repair of equipment for which leaks have been detected will be allowed if
the repair is technically infeasible without a hazardous waste management unit shutdown. In such a case, repair of this equipment shall occur before the end of the next
hazardous waste management unit shutdown.
(b) Delay of repair of equipment for which leaks have been detected will be allowed for
equipment that is isolated from the hazardous waste management unit and that does
not continue to contain or contact hazardous waste with organic concentrations at
least 10 percent by weight.
(c) Delay of repair for valves will be allowed if:
(1) The owner or operator determines that emissions of purged material resulting from
immediate repair are greater than the emissions likely to result from delay of repair.
(2) When repair procedures are effected, the purged material is collected and destroyed
or recovered in a control device complying with § 264.1060.
(d) Delay of repair for pumps will be allowed if:
(1) Repair requires the use of a dual mechanical seal system that includes a barrier
(2) Repair is completed as soon as practicable, but not later than 6 months after the
leak was detected.
(e) Delay of repair beyond a hazardous waste management unit shutdown will be allowed
for a valve if valve assembly replacement is necessary during the hazardous waste
management unit shutdown, valve assembly supplies have been depleted, and valve assembly
supplies had been sufficiently stocked before the supplies were depleted. Delay of repair beyond the next hazardous waste management unit shutdown will not
be allowed unless the next hazardous waste management unit shutdown occurs sooner
than 6 months after the first hazardous waste management unit shutdown.
