Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 42467
Filed: 01/12/2018 09:14:51 AM

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:

One amendment to this rule was made since the last five-year review to conform the rule with S.B. 21 which was passed during the 2012 General Session. No comments were received on the 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 R315-316 sets standards for the management of infectious waste. This waste can present special risks or require special handling which is set forth in Rule R315-316. When these standards are obeyed, it will assure that these wastes do not present an unacceptable risk to public health or the environment. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
