Permit Requirements for Solid Waste Facilities

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 42461

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 19-6-104(1)(j) requires the Solid and Hazardous Waste Control Board to require any facility disposing of non-hazardous waste to submit plans, specifications, and other information required by the Board prior to the construction and/or operation of a facility. Subsection 19-6-108(12) requires that operation plans be reviewed every five years. This rule sets out the procedures and information that must be submitted to review a plan approval and meet the requirements of the statute.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

Two amendments to this rule were made since the last five-year review. One to conform the rule to S.B. 21 which was passed during the 2012 General Session, and the other to add coal ash facilities operated by electrical generation facilities to the list of facilities requiring a permit. No comments were received on either amendment. No other comments were received from any interested persons either supporting or opposing this rule during or since the last five-year review.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Rule R315-310 contains the requirement for a permit to operate a nonhazardous facility. The permitting program is an integral part of the solid waste program and is required to maintain EPA program approval and to meet the requirements of Section 19-6-108. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
