SOLID WASTE PROCESSING AND DISPOSAL
Rule 1200-01-07-.04, continued)
The volume and chemical nature of the waste managed in the landfill;
Impacts on fish, wildlife, and other aquatic resources and their habitat from
release of the solid waste;
The potential effects of catastrophic release of waste to the wetland and the resulting impacts on the environment; and
Any additional factors, as necessary, to demonstrate that ecological resources in the wetland are sufficiently protected.
To the extent required under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act or Tennessee Water Pollution Control Act, steps have been taken to attempt to achieve no net loss of wetlands (as defined by acreage and function) by first avoiding impacts to wetlands to the maximum extent practicable as required by paragraph (a)(1) of this section, then minimizing unavoidable impacts to the maximum extent practicable, and finally offsetting remaining unavoidable wetland impacts through all appropriate and practicable compensatory mitigation actions (e.g., restoration of existing degraded wetlands or creation of man-made wetlands); and
Sufficient information is available to make a reasonable determination with respect to these demonstrations.
Karst Terrane - If a facility is proposed in an area of highly developed karst terrane (i.e., sink holes, caves, underground conduit flow drainage, and solutionally enlarged fractures) the applicant must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Commissioner that relative to the proposed facility siting:
There is no significant potential for surface collapse;
The ground water flow system is not a conduit flow which would contribute significant potential for surface collapse or which would cause significant degradation to the ground water; and
Location in the karst terrane will not cause any significant degradation to the local ground water resources.
The above referenced demonstration may require the installation of piezometers, the developing of a potentiometric-surface map of ground water, conducting geophysical surveys, dye tracing or other specific requirements deemed necessary by the Commissioner to evaluate the proposed site to his satisfaction.
Airport Safety - The owners or operators of class I disposal facilities located within 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) of any airport runway end used by turbojet aircraft or within 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) of any airport runway end used only by piston-type aircraft must include in the Narrative Description of the Facility and Operations Manual a demonstration that the unit does not pose a bird hazard to aircraft. The owners or operators proposing new class I disposal facility within a five-mile radius of any airport runway end used by turbojet or piston-type aircraft must notify the affected airport and the appropriate Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) office.
Random Inspection Program - The owner or operator of a permitted landfill must implement a program at the facility for detecting and preventing the disposal of regulated hazardous waste, unauthorized special waste, PCB’s(>50 ppm), whole tires, lead-acid batteries, and liquid wastes. This program must include at a minimum:
