AQMD SVE Operation (R203) or Rule 1166 Notification Form Mobile App
The AQMD SVE Operation (R203) or Rule 1166 Notification Form app can be used to notify officials of a Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE) operation.
How does it work?
It’s also used to report the R1166 project prior to excavating contaminated soil. This refers to an area that is known or suspected to contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) the concentration which can be a detriment to human health. It may refer to a VOC tank excavation, discovering detection limits of > 50 ppm and 1000 ppm VOC contaminated soil or removal and mitigation of VOC contaminated the soil.
VOC’s are often used in petroleum and solvents. Improper disposal of these contaminants can cause health and environmental concerns, such as contaminated groundwater. When soil samples of a site indicate hazardous VOC substances, remedial action to remove the soil must be taken. this treatment is intended to eradicate this dangerous pollution element.
Before mitigation measures are taken to clean up a contaminated site, a proper hazardous waste site or disposal facility must be secured. Since VOC materials produce fumes that can be toxic to breathe, extraction hazards must be considered before the removal. Site safety includes air monitoring with an organic vapor analyzer. Employees must often wear personal protective equipment like respirators.
This app logs project information, site contractor details, tank information, and certification requirements. It also captures images as documentation and can be shared electronically.
