The USDA's Beltsville Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Md. has settled alleged violations of UST and hazardous waste regulations. EPA cited USDA for failing to conduct release detection every 30 days, failing to perform annual line leak detection tests, and failing to perform annual line tightness tests. The alleged RCRA violations included operating a facility for the storage, treatment and/or disposal of hazardous waste without a permit, failing to clearly label containers of accumulated hazardous waste, not maintaining records of hazardous waste training for facility personnel and failing to determine if the solid waste generated by the facility was hazardous waste, specifically, used aerosol cans generated from the facility's machinery shop.
