background values for all the parameters required.
Since the operator of a Class II facility may or may not be required by the Commissioner to conduct sampling and analysis for the Appendix II list, the operator shall develop and submit a ground water quality assessment plan as required in Part 6 of this paragraph and shall conduct corrective action as required in Part 8 of this paragraph based on sampling and analysis of ground water monitoring parameters specified by the Commissioner to be characteristic of the wastes and/or the Appendix II parameters. The Commissioner, at his discretion based on statistical increases in sampling parameters, may expand the number of parameters that characterize the waste.
All ground water monitoring parameters for Class II facilities will be selected and established in the permit for new facilities, and for existing facilities, the parameters will be established in the permit modification which will be established in the new closure/post-closure care plan care as required in Rule .03(2)(c)2(ii).
Class II facilities shall meet all other requirements for the ground water protection and monitoring standards of paragraph (7).
Class III and Class IV Disposal Facilities – Class III and Class IV disposal facilities must meet the same ground water protection/monitoring standards for Class I facilities in subparagraph (a) of this paragraph.
Closure and Post-Closure Standards - Unless specifically noted otherwise, the standards of this paragraph apply to Class I, Class II, Class III, and Class IV disposal facilities.
General Performance Standard
The operator must close the disposal facility or disposal facility parcel in a manner that:
Minimizes the need for further maintenance; and
Controls, minimizes, or eliminates, to the extent necessary to prevent threats to public health and the environment, post-closure escape of solid waste, solid waste constituents, leachate, contaminated rainfall, or waste decomposition products to the ground or surface waters or to the atmosphere.
The operator must care for a disposal facility or disposal facility parcel for the period of time after closure, specified in subparagraph (d) of this Rule, in a manner that assures that the performance objectives of part 1 of this subparagraph are continuously met.
Adherence to Plan - The operator must initiate and complete closure activities and conduct post-closure care activities in accordance with the approved closure/post- closure care plan, if such plan has been prepared and approved for the disposal facility or disposal facility parcel being closed.
Closure Requirements - The following requirements apply to active portions of the facility:
