SOLID WASTE PROCESSING AND DISPOSAL
Rule 1200-01-07-.04, continued)
Minimizes erosion of cover material (e.g., no steep slopes);
Optimizes drainage of precipitation falling on the disposal facility or
disposal facility parcel (e.g., prevent pooling); and
Provides a surface drainage system which is consistent with the surrounding area and in no way significantly adversely affects proper drainage from these adjacent lands.
In order to minimize soil erosion, as soon as practicable after final grading, the operator shall take steps as necessary to establish a protective vegetative cover of acceptable grasses over disturbed areas of the site. These steps shall include seeding, mulching, and any necessary fertilization at a minimum, and may include additional activities such as sodding of steeper slopes and drainage ways if such are necessary.
In addition to the drainage and grading requirements and vegetative cover requirements, the operator shall take other measures as may be necessary to minimize and control erosion and sedimentation (e.g., soil stabilization, sediment ponds) at the site.
As required in his permit, or as otherwise necessary to prevent threats to human health and the environment, the operator shall establish and/or complete a system for collecting, removing, and treating leachate generated by the disposal facility or disposal facility parcel.
As required in his permit, or as otherwise necessary to prevent threats to human health and the environment, the operator shall establish and/or complete a system for collecting and venting or otherwise controlling the vertical and horizontal escape of gases generated in the disposal facility or disposal facility parcel.
The operator must notify the Division Director in writing within 60 days of his completion of closure of the disposal facility or disposal facility parcel. Such notification must include a certification by the operator that the disposal facility or disposal facility parcel has been closed in accordance with the approved closure/post-closure care plan. Within 21 days of the receipt of such notice the Division Director shall inspect the facility to verify that closure has been completed and in accordance with the approved plan. Within 10 days of such verification, the Commissioner shall approve the closure in writing to the operator. Closure shall not be considered final and complete until such approval has been made.
Post-Closure Care Period – For Class I and Class II disposal facilities, post-closure care must continue for 30 years after the date of final completion of closure of the disposal facility or facility parcel unless a shorter period is established in the approved closure/post-closure care plan. For Class III and IV disposal facilities, post-closure care must continue for 2 years after the date of final completion of closure of the facility or facility parcel. The post-closure care period may be reduced or extended based on cause by amendment of the approved closure/post-closure care plan as provided in Rule 1200-01-07-.03(2)(c).
Post-Closure Care Activities - During the post-closure care period, the operator must, at a minimum, perform the following activities on closed portions of his facility:
