Rule 1200-01-07-.04, continued)
Random inspection of five percent of the daily incoming loads.
Inspection of all suspicious loads.
Records of all inspections must be maintained in a bound notebook, and include
the inspection date, vehicle identification, driver signature, identification of any unauthorized waste, disposition of any unauthorized waste, and facility inspector signature.
Training of facility personnel to recognize regulated hazardous waste.
Procedures for notifying the appropriate Division field office if an unauthorized
waste is identified and left at the facility.
Future Planning - All operators of Class I disposal facilities within the state of Tennessee shall file with the department, by May 1st of every year, an estimate of the remaining life of their site. This report shall include the original usable acreage of the site and the remaining unused portion at the time of the report. Where measuring facilities are available, an average monthly weight (or volume) estimate of the incoming waste shall be supplied. The department shall have final determination of the accuracy of the estimate. If the operator plans to operate a new landfill, a suitable site for the new facility shall be selected at least twelve months before the estimated date for expiration of the operating life of the existing facility, and as applicable, design and construction plans shall be submitted at least six months prior to the estimated date for expiration of the operating life of the existing facility to assure continued operation in an approved facility or site.
Fault areas - Class I and II disposal facilities shall not be located within 200 feet (60 meters) of a fault that has had displacement in Holocene time unless the owner or operator demonstrates in the Narrative Description of the Facility and Operations Manual that an alternative setback distance of less than 200 feet (60 meters) will prevent damage to the structural integrity of the SWLF unit and will be protective of human health and the environment.
Seismic Impact zones - Class I and II disposal facilities shall not be located in seismic impact zones, unless the owner or operator demonstrates that all containment structures, including liners, leachate collection systems, and surface water control systems, are designed to resist the maximum horizontal acceleration in lithified earth
Narrative Description of the

Unstable areas - Owners or operators of Class I and II disposal facilities located in an unstable area must demonstrate that engineering measures have been incorporated into the SWLF units design to ensure that the integrity of the structural components of
the SWLF unit will demonstration in the
not be disrupted.
owner or operator must place the the Facility and Operations Manual
record. The owner or operator must consider when determining whether an area is unstable:
On-site or local soil conditions that may result in significant differential settling;
On-site or local geologic or geomorphologic features; and
On-site or local human-made features or events (both surface and subsurface).
