A worker felt liquid droplets contact his face when he set down a secondary containment bin containing one-gallon high-density polyethylene bottles of a nitric and hydrofluoric acid solution. A small amount of acidic liquid was observed in the bottom of the secondary transportation bin. One of the containers had a vertical crease on the side of the container that was weeping and was compromised when it was moved. The requirement that waste in a Satellite and Generator Accumulation Area may be stored up to one year does not take into account container degradation for a particular waste stream over time. External forces exerted on the compromised container during transport is believed to have contributed to the pooling liquid.
