12/5/2019 DisapprovedThis Comment not addressed in previous review: 1. Please provide product specification sheets on the proposed 200 and 385 gal tanks that shows the construction standard for each tank (ie, UL 142), not just a low quality black and white image in the case of the 200 gal tanks. Tank construction shall comply with NFPA 30 design standards, but as just an image was provided, this is currently unable to be verified. 2. How are the tanks going to be vented, filled, emptied, dispensed from, etc? These shall comply with Section 5704. Note that filling of tanks with Class I, II, and IIIA liquids SHALL NOT be performed inside of buildings (ie, the filling connection must be made outside).
DisapprovedComment not addressed from previous review: Provide a full sized hazardous materials storage plan sheet with plans that is to scale to ensure that incompatible materials are separated by at least 20' and that vehicle protection is provided for the tanks and storage cages.
DisapprovedChemical inventory provided via HAMMERS. 1. Both ETHOXYTRIGLYCOL - 150 gal and POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL 200 - 150 gal are indicated as Class IA Flammable Liquids. This total amount of 300 gal of Class IA flammable liquids is greater than the Maximum Allowable Quantity of Class IA flammable liquids. This requires either: 1a. Reclassification of the occupancy to be an H-3 occupancy OR 1b. Verification that these liquids are in fact Class IA flammable liquids. IF this is the case, then the HAMMERS Submission is required to be corrected and the report printed out and added to the plans.
AttentionADDITIONAL FEES: This is our 2nd review of these plans. Any and all future plan submittals for this specific permit will have additional plan review fees charged to the project, as per the CSFD fee schedule.
