The Chemical Storage and Distribution Facility offers state-of-the-art storage for the wide variety of materials handled at CSM. Special prefabricated storage buildings have been placed outside the main Coolbaugh Hall structure. Six separate compartments are used to store materials based upon compatibilities.

The storage units are heated, well lit, and continuously ventilated. Explosion-proof refrigeration units are available for subambient storage of reactive and highly volatile materials. Each compartment provides several levels of containment and access is limited to authorized personnel.

Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF)

  • Location: Plant Facilities Yard
  • Phone: 303-273-3869
  • Contact Person: Tim Sweitzer

The safe management and storage of hazardous materials is accomplished through the use of the CSM Hazardous Materials Management Facility (HMMF). This facility is engineered to safely store hazardous materials in several different secure compartments. Storage Compartments in the HMMF include: Flammable, Corrosive, Toxic, Radioactive, and Special Handling.

The compartments are heated to prevent freezing of contents and are all equipped with fire suppression systems. The facility was constructed with a spill containment and control system that prevents leaks or spills from release from the facility.

The HMMF has provisions for the storage of asbestos waste, batteries, and special wastes.

Both wastes and hazardous materials designated for reuse may be temporarily stored in the HMMF.

Industrial Chemical Storage Facility (ICSF)

  • Location: Plant Facilities Yard
  • Phone: 303-273-3869
  • Contact Person: Tim Sweitzer

The Industrial Chemical Storage Facility (ICSF) provides for storage of large containers (55 gallon drums) of hazardous materials used on campus. This facility reduces the quantities of materials located in occupied buildings. The ICSF is a covered and fenced concrete slab surrounded by a six inch dike to contain any spilled material. The facility is also the central storage point for all recycled materials (e.g. paper, oil, aluminum) from the CSM campus.

Space in the ICSF is available to all CSM departments for bulk material storage. Because the ICSF is protected from the weather, stored material is not exposed to precipitation and potential problems with runoff are avoided.
