c. Capacitors shall be identified as follows:
(1) Capacitors containing less than 3 pounds of dielectric fluid - not
required to be identified.
(2) Capacitors containing 3 or more pounds of dielectric fluid and
made prior to 1975 - "PCB."
(3) Capacitors containing 3 or more pounds of dielectric fluid and
made in 1975 or later - "Non-PCB."
d. The contract specifications shall require that PCB equipment, after
removal from service, but before being moved from equipment
location and regardless of equipment condition, be drained of fluids
and that the fluids be containerized. On individual projects, verify with
the activity and with LANTNAVFACENGCOM Environmental
Programs Branch (Code 182) whether PCB equipment and fluids are
to be turned over to Public Works for disposal by the Government or
are to be removed and disposed of under the construction contract.
REMOVAL OF EXISTING CABLES
When a project calls for removal of existing cables, these cables should be
physically removed and not simply abandoned in place. The associated ducts
or conduits, if concealed and not in the way of new construction, may be
abandoned in place. Existing direct buried cables would also normally be
abandoned in place.
MODIFICATION OF OR ADDITIONS TO EXISTING ELECTRICAL
Record, on the drawings, the manufacturer's name and other pertinent
manufacturer's identification (e.g., serial number, model number, style, and
any other manufacturer's identifying markings). Normally it is difficult to
depict "existing to remain," "existing, remove." and "new" items on a single
one-line diagram; when this is the case an existing one-line diagram of the
portion of electrical system to be modified shall be shown and a separate
one-line diagram shall be shown indicating the changes required.
Any material (including fireproofing tape in manholes. handholes, and vaults)
suspected of containing asbestos shall be tested by a qualified laboratory to
determine the asbestos content. Materials containing asbestos shall be
