§ 66261.22. Characteristic of Corrosivity.
(a) A waste exhibits the characteristic of corrosivity if representative samples of the waste have any of the following properties:
(1) it is aqueous and has a pH less than or equal to 2 or greater than or equal to 12.5, as determined by a pH meter using either the EPA test method for pH or an equivalent test method approved by the Department pursuant to section 66260.21. The EPA test method for pH is specified as Method 9040 in “Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste, Physical/Chemical Methods,” SW-846, 3rd edition and updates (incorporated by reference, see section 66260.11);
(2) it is a liquid and corrodes steel (SAE 1020) at a rate greater than 6.35 mm (0.250 inch) per year at a test temperature of 55o C (130o F) as determined by the test method specified in NACE Standard TM-01-69 as standardized in “Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste, Physical/Chemical Methods,” SW-846, 3rd edition and updates (incorporated by reference, see section 66260.11) or an equivalent test method approved by the Department pursuant to section 66260.21;
(3) it is not aqueous and, when mixed with an equivalent weight of water, produces a solution having a pH less than or equal to 2 or greater than or equal to 12.5, as determined by a pH meter using either Method 9040 in “Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste, Physical/Chemical Methods,” SW-846, 3rd edition and updates (incorporated by reference, see section 66260.11) or an equivalent test method approved by the Department pursuant to 66260.21;
(4) it is not a liquid and, when mixed with an equivalent weight of water, produces a liquid that corrodes steel (SAE 1020) at a rate greater than 6.35 mm (0.250 inch) per year at a test temperature of 55o C (130o F) as determined by the test method specified in NACE Standard TM-01-69 as standardized in “Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste, Physical/Chemical Methods,” SW-846, 3rd edition and updates (incorporated by reference, see section 66260.11) or an equivalent test method approved by the Department pursuant to 66260.21.
(b) A waste that exhibits the characteristic of corrosivity specified in subsection (a)(1) or (a)(2) of this section has the EPA Hazardous Waste Number of D002.
