This document is a deliverable of the BASMAA project: Managing PCBs−Containing Building Materials during Demolition: Guidance, Tools, Outreach and Training. BASMAA developed guidance, tools, and outreach and training materials to assist with San Francisco Bay Area municipal agencies’ (Permittees) efforts to address the requirements of Provision C.12.f. of the Bay Area Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit (referred to as the MRP). Provision C.12.f of the MRP requires Permittees to manage PCBs–containing building materials during demolition. Specifically, MRP Provision C.12.f.ii (2) requires that by July 1, 2019 Permittees “implement or cause to be implemented the PCBs management protocol for ensuring PCBs are not discharged to MS4s [municipal storm drain systems] from demolition of applicable structures via vehicle track-out, airborne releases, soil erosion, or stormwater runoff.”
The PCBs in Priority Building Materials: Model Screening Assessment Applicant Package (Applicant Package) contains model supplemental demolition permit application materials that incorporate the PCBs in building materials control program requirements in the MRP. It includes supplemental demolition permit application model materials, including an overview of the process. The Applicant Package summarizes the typical process that a local agency will need to follow to implement a new program to manage PCBs-containing materials during building demolition. It is anticipated that each jurisdiction’s approach to implementing the new program will vary depending upon that agency’s current procedures and needs. Potential approaches include using the model materials as a stand-alone program, or incorporating questions in the model materials into existing demolition permit or building permit applications, Construction and Demolition (C&D) applications and plan development guidance, and/or information management systems such as GreenHalo™. However, the Applicant Package was developed as a stand-alone package in order to provide a complete overview of a model process.
