Hazardous Materials & Waste
Hazardous Materials (HM) and Hazardous Waste (HW) is an area of great concern at Fort Gordon. Each individual and every unit/activity on the installation deals with HM/HW at some point. The latest guidance on the handling of hazardous material and hazardous waste is found in the Hazardous Waste Management Plan (HWMP). If your Unit/Activity has a Satellite Accumulation Point (SAP), you can find the latest guidance in section 4 of the HWMP.

A SPCCP for a facility is prepared and implemented as required by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations contained in Title 40, CFR, Part 112 (40 CFR 112). A non-transportation-related facility is subject to SPCCP regulations if a single aboveground tank has a storage capacity greater than 660 gallons; or the total aboveground storage capacity exceeds 1,320 gallons or the underground storage capacity exceeds 42,000 gallons; and if, due to its location, the facility could reasonably be expected to discharge oil into or upon the navigable waters of the United States.The Fort Gordon Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Plan (SPCCP)
