(1) For the purposes of the F037 and F038 listings, oil/water/solids is defined as oil and/or water and/or solids.
(2)(A) For the purposes of the F037 and F038 listings, aggressive biological treatment units are defined as units which employ one of the following four treatment methods: activated sludge; trickling filter; rotating biological contactor for the continuous accelerated biological oxidation of wastewaters; or high-rate aeration. High-rate aeration is a system of surface impoundments or tanks, in which intense mechanical aeration is used to completely mix the wastes, enhance biological activity, and:
1. The unit employs a minimum of six horsepower per million gallons of treatment volume; and
2. a. The hydraulic retention time of the unit is no longer than five days; or
b. The hydraulic retention time is no longer than 30 days and the unit does not generate a sludge that is a hazardous waste by the Toxicity Characteristic.
(B) Generators and treatment, storage and disposal facilities have the burden of proving that sludges generated or managed by the generator or facility are exempt from listing as F037 and F038 wastes under this definition. Generators and treatment, storage anddisposal facilities shall maintain, in the facility operating or other onsite records, documents and data sufficient to prove that:
1. The unit is an aggressive biological treatment unit as defined in this subsection; and
2. The sludges sought to be exempted from the definitions of F037 and/or F038 wastes were actually generated in the aggressive biological treatment unit.
(3)(A) For the purposes of the F037 listing, sludges are considered to be generated at the moment of deposition in the unit, where deposition is defined as at least a temporary cessation of lateral particle movement.
(B) For the purposes of the F038 listing:
1. Sludges are considered to be generated at the moment of deposition in the unit, where deposition is defined as at least a temporary cessation of lateral particle movement; and
2. Floats are considered to be generated at the moment of formation in the top of the unit.
