NR 664.0001(10) (10) The requirements of subchs. B, C and D and s. NR 664.0101 do not apply to remediation waste management sites. (However, some remediation waste management sites may be a part of a facility that is subject to a license issued under s. 291.25, Stats., and ch. NR 670 because the facility is also treating, storing or disposing of hazardous wastes that are not remediation wastes. In these cases, subchs. B, C and D, and s.

NR 664.0001(10)(a) (a) Obtain an EPA identification number as specified in s. NR 660.07.
NR 664.0001(10)(b) (b) Obtain a detailed chemical and physical analysis of a representative sample of the hazardous remediation wastes to be managed at the site. At a minimum, the analysis shall contain all of the information which must be known to treat, store or dispose of the waste according to this chapter and ch. NR 668, and shall be kept accurate and up to date.
NR 664.0001(10)(c) (c) Prevent people who are unaware of the danger from entering, and minimize the possibility for unauthorized people or livestock to enter onto the active portion of the remediation waste management site, unless the owner or operator can demonstrate to the department all of the following:
NR 664.0001(10)(c)1. 1. Physical contact with the waste, structures or equipment within the active portion of the remediation waste management site will not injure people or livestock who may enter the active portion of the remediation waste management site.
NR 664.0001(10)(c)2. 2. Disturbance of the waste or equipment by people or livestock, who enter onto the active portion of the remediation waste management site, will not cause a violation of the requirements of this chapter.
NR 664.0001(10)(d) (d) Inspect the remediation waste management site for malfunctions, deterioration, operator errors and discharges that may be causing, or may lead to, a release of hazardous waste constituents to the environment, or a threat to human health. The owner or operator shall conduct these inspections often enough to identify problems in time to correct them before they harm human health or the environment, and shall remedy the problem before it leads to a human health or environmental hazard. Where a hazard is imminent or has already occurred, the owner or operator shall take remedial action immediately.
NR 664.0001(10)(e) (e) Provide personnel with classroom or on-the-job training on how to perform their duties in a way that ensures the remediation waste management site complies with the requirements of this chapter, and on how to respond effectively to emergencies.

I to O and X, design, construct, operate and maintain a unit within a 100-year floodplain to prevent washout of any hazardous waste by a 100-year flood, unless the owner or operator can meet the demonstration of s. NR 664.0018 (2).
NR 664.0001(10)(h) (h) Not place any non-containerized or bulk liquid hazardous waste in any salt dome formation, salt bed formation, underground mine or cave.
NR 664.0001(10)(i) (i) Develop and maintain a construction quality assurance program for all surface impoundments, waste piles and landfill units that are required to comply with ss. NR 664.0221 (3) and (4), 664.0251 (3) and (4) and 664.0301 (3) and (4) at the remediation waste management site, according to the requirements of s. NR 664.0019.
NR 664.0001(10)(j) (j) Develop and maintain procedures to prevent accidents and a contingency and emergency plan to control accidents that occur. These procedures shall address proper design, construction, maintenance and operation of remediation waste management units at the site. The goal of the plan shall be to minimize the possibility of, and the hazards from a fire, explosion or any unplanned sudden or non-sudden release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents to air, soil or surface water that could threaten human health or the environment. The plan shall explain specifically how to treat, store and dispose of the hazardous remediation waste in question, and shall be implemented immediately whenever a fire, explosion or release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents which could threaten human health or the environment occurs.
NR 664.0001(10)(k) (k) Designate at least one employee, either on the facility premises or on call (that is, available to respond to an emergency by reaching the facility quickly), to coordinate all emergency response measures. This emergency coordinator shall be thoroughly familiar with all aspects of the facility's contingency plan, all operations and activities at the facility, the location and characteristics of waste handled, the location of all records within the facility, and the facility layout. In addition, this person shall have the authority to commit the resources needed to carry out the contingency plan.
NR 664.0001(10)(L) (L) Develop, maintain and implement a plan to meet the requirements in pars. (b) to (f), (i) and (j).
NR 664.0001(10)(m) (m) Maintain records documenting compliance with pars. (a) to (L).
