R315-270-1. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Purpose and Scope of These Rules.

(a) No person shall own, construct, modify, or operate any facility for the purpose of treating, storing, or disposing of hazardous waste without first submitting, and receiving the approval of the Director for, a hazardous waste permit for that facility. However, any person owning or operating a facility on or before November 19, 1980, who has given timely notification as required by section 3010 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976, 42 U.S.C., section 6921, et seq., and who has submitted a proposed hazardous waste permit as required by Section R315-270-1 and Section 19-6-108 for that facility, may continue to operate that facility without violating Section R315-270-1 until such time as the permit is approved or disapproved pursuant to Section R315-270-1.

(b)(1) The Director shall review each proposed hazardous waste permit application to determine whether the application will be in accord with the provisions of Rules R315-260 through 266, 268, 270 and 273, and Section 19-6-108 and, on that basis, shall approve or disapprove the application within the applicable time period specified in Section 19-6-108. If, after the receipt of plans, specifications, or other information required under Rule R315-270 and Section 19-6-108 and within the applicable time period of Section 19-6-108, the Director determines that the proposed construction, installation or establishment or any part of it will not be in accord with the requirements of Rule R315-270 or other applicable rules, he shall issue an order prohibiting the construction, installation or establishment of the proposal in whole or in part. The date of submission shall be deemed to be the date of all required information is provided to the Director as required by Rule R315-270.

(2) Any permit application which does not meet the requirements of Rules 315-260 through 266, 268 270 and 273 shall be disapproved within the applicable time period specified in Section 19-6-108. If within the applicable time period specified in Section 19-6-108 the Director fails to approve or disapprove the permit application or to request the submission of any additional information or modification to the application, the application shall not be deemed approved but the applicant may petition the Director for a decision or seek judicial relief requiring a decision of approval or disapproval.

(3) An application for approval of a hazardous waste permit consists of two parts, part A and part B. For an existing facility, the requirement is satisfied by submitting only part A of the application until the date the Director sets for each individual facility for submitting part B of the application, which date shall be in no case less than six months after the Director gives notice to a particular facility that it shall submit part B of the application.

(c) Scope of the hazardous waste permit requirement. Section 19-6-108 requires a permit for the "treatment," "storage," and "disposal" of any "hazardous waste" as identified or listed in Rule R315-261. The terms "treatment," "storage," "disposal," and "hazardous waste" are defined in Section R315-270-2. Owners and operators of hazardous waste management units shall have permits during the active life, including the closure period, of the unit. Owners and operators of surface impoundments, landfills, land treatment units, and waste pile units that received waste after July 26, 1982, or that certified closure, according to 40 CFR 265.115, which is adopted by reference, after January 26, 1983, shall have post-closure permits, unless they demonstrate closure by removal or decontamination as provided under Subsections R315-270-1(c)(5) and (6), or obtain an enforceable document in lieu of a post-closure permit, as provided under Subsection R315-270-1(c)(7). If a post-closure permit is required, the permit shall address applicable Rule R315-264 groundwater monitoring, unsaturated zone monitoring, corrective action, and post-closure care requirements. The denial of a permit for the active life of a hazardous waste management facility or unit does not affect the requirement to obtain a post-closure permit under Section R315-270-1.

(1) Specific inclusions. Owners and operators of certain facilities require hazardous waste permits as well as permits under other programs for certain aspects of the facility operation. Hazardous waste permits are required for:

(i) Injection wells that dispose of hazardous waste, and associated surface facilities that treat, store or dispose of hazardous waste. However, the owner and operator with a Utah or Federal UIC permit, shall be deemed to have a "permit by rule" for the injection well itself if they comply with the requirements of Subsection R315-270-60(b).

(ii) Treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste at facilities requiring an NPDES permit. However, the owner and operator of a publicly owned treatment works receiving hazardous waste shall be deemed to have a "permit by rule" for that waste if they comply with the requirements of Section R315-270-60(c).

(2) Specific exclusions and exemptions. The following persons are among those who are not required to obtain a hazardous waste permit:

(i) Generators who accumulate hazardous waste on-site in compliance with all of the conditions for exemption provided in Sections R315-262-14, R315-262-15, R315-262-16, and R315-262-17.

(ii) Farmers who dispose of hazardous waste pesticides from their own use as provided in Section R315-262-70;

(iii) Persons who own or operate facilities solely for the treatment, storage or disposal of hazardous waste excluded from regulations under Rule R315-270 by Section R315-261-4 or Section R315-262-14, very small quantity generator exemption.

(i) A person is not required to obtain a permit for treatment or containment activities taken during immediate response to any of the following situations:

(A) A discharge of a hazardous waste;

(B) An imminent and substantial threat of a discharge of hazardous waste;

(C) A discharge of a material which, when discharged, becomes a hazardous waste.

(ii) Any person who continues or initiates hazardous waste treatment or containment activities after the immediate response is over is subject to all applicable requirements of Rule R315-270 for those activities.

(iii) In the case of emergency responses involving military munitions, the responding military emergency response specialist's organizational unit shall retain records for three years identifying the dates of the response, the responsible persons responding, the type and description of material addressed, and its disposition.

(4) Permits for less than an entire facility. The Director may issue or deny a permit for one or more units at a facility without simultaneously issuing or denying a permit to all of the units at the facility. The interim status of any unit for which a permit has not been issued or denied is not affected by the issuance or denial of a permit to any other unit at the facility.

(5) Closure by removal. Owners/operators of surface impoundments, land treatment units, and waste piles closing by removal or decontamination under Rule R315-265 standards shall obtain a post-closure permit unless they can demonstrate to the Director that the closure met the standards for closure by removal or decontamination in Section R315-264-228, Subsection R315-264-280(e), or Section R315-264-258, respectively. The demonstration may be made in the following ways:

(i) If the owner/operator has submitted a part B application for a post-closure permit, the owner/operator may request a determination, based on information contained in the application, that Rule R315-264 closure by removal standards were met. If the Director believes that Rule R315-264 standards were met, The Director shall notify the public of this proposed decision, allow for public comment, and reach a final determination according to the procedures in Subsection R315-270-1(c)(6).

(ii) If the owner/operator has not submitted a part B application for a post-closure permit, the owner/operator may petition the Director for a determination that a post-closure permit is not required because the closure met the applicable Rule R315-264 closure standards.

(A) The petition shall include data demonstrating that closure by removal or decontamination standards of Rule R315-264 were met.

(B) The Director shall approve or deny the petition according to the procedures outlined in Subsection R315-270-1(c)(6).

(6) Procedures for closure equivalency determination.

(i) If a facility owner/operator seeks an equivalency demonstration under Subsection R315-270-1(c)(5), the Director shall provide the public, through a newspaper notice, the opportunity to submit written comments on the information submitted by the owner/operator within 30 days from the date of the notice. The Director shall also, in response to a request or at the Director's discretion, hold a public hearing whenever such a hearing might clarify one or more issues concerning the equivalence of the Rule R315-265 closure to a Rule R315-264 closure. The Director shall give public notice of the hearing at least 30 days before it occurs. Public notice of the hearing may be given at the same time as notice of the opportunity for the public to submit written comments, and the two notices may be combined.

(ii) The Director shall determine whether the Rule R315-265 closure met the Rule R315-264 closure by removal or decontamination requirements within 90 days of its receipt. If the Director finds that the closure did not meet the applicable Rule R315-264 standards, the Director shall provide the owner/operator with a written statement of the reasons why the closure failed to meet Rule R315-264 standards. The owner/operator may submit additional information in support of an equivalency demonstration within 30 days after receiving such written statement. The Director shall review any additional information submitted and make a final determination within 60 days.

(iii) If the Director determines that the facility did not close in accordance with Rule R315-264 closure by removal standards, the facility is subject to post-closure permitting requirements.

(7) Enforceable documents for post-closure care. At the discretion of the Director, an owner or operator may obtain, in lieu of a post-closure permit, an enforceable document imposing the requirements of 40 CFR 265.121, which is adopted by reference. "Enforceable document" means an order, a permit, or other document issued by the Director including, but not limited to, a corrective action order issued by EPA under section 3008(h), a CERCLA remedial action, or a closure or post-closure permit.

(c) Completeness.

(1) The Director shall not issue a permit before receiving a complete application for a permit except for permits by rule, or emergency permits. An application for a permit is complete when the Director receives an application form and any supplemental information which are completed to the Director's satisfaction. An application for a permit is complete notwithstanding the failure of the owner or operator to submit the exposure information described in Subsection R315-270-10(j). The Director may deny a permit for the active life of a hazardous waste management facility or unit before receiving a complete application for a permit.

(2) The Director shall review for completeness every permit application. Each permit application submitted by a new hazardous waste management facility, should be reviewed for completeness by the Director in accordance with the applicable review periods of 19-6-108. Upon completing the review, the Director shall notify the applicant in writing whether the permit application is complete. If the permit application is incomplete, the Director shall list the information necessary to make the permit application complete. When the permit application is for an existing hazardous waste management facility, the Director shall specify in the notice of deficiency a date for submitting the necessary information. The Director shall review information submitted in response to a notice of deficiency within 30 days after receipt. The Director shall notify the applicant that the permit application is complete upon receiving this information. After the permit application is complete, the Director may request additional information from an applicant but only when necessary to clarify, modify, or supplement previously submitted material.

(3) If an applicant fails or refuses to correct deficiencies in the permit application, the permit application may be denied and appropriate enforcement actions may be taken under the applicable provisions of the Utah Solid and Hazardous Waste Act.

(d) Information requirements. All applicants for permits shall provide information set forth in Section R315-270-13 and applicable sections in Sections R315-270-14 through 29 to the Director, using the application form provided by the Director, if the Director has made such forms available.

(e) Existing HWM facilities and interim status qualifications.

(1) Owners and operators of existing hazardous waste management facilities or of hazardous waste management facilities in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under Sections 19-6-101 through 125 that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a permit shall submit part A of their permit application no later than:

(i) Six months after the date of publication of regulations which first require them to comply with the standards set forth in Rules R315-265 or 266, or

(ii) Thirty days after the date they first become subject to the standards set forth in Rules R315-265 or 266, whichever first occurs.

(iii) For generators generating greater than 100 kilograms but less than 1000 kilograms of hazardous waste in a calendar month and treats, stores, or disposes of these wastes on-site, by March 24, 1987.

(2) Reserved

(3) The Director may by compliance order extend the date by which the owner and operator of an existing hazardous waste management facility shall submit part A of their permit application.

(11) Facility location information;

(i) In order to determine the applicability of the seismic standard, Subsection R315-264-18(a), the owner or operator of a new facility shall identify the political jurisdiction, e.g., county, township, or election district, in which the facility is proposed to be located. If the county or election district is not listed in appendix VI of Rule R315-264, no further information is required to demonstrate compliance with Subsection R315-264-18(a).

(ii) If the facility is proposed to be located in an area listed in appendix VI of Rule R315-264, the owner or operator shall demonstrate compliance with the seismic standard. This demonstration may be made using either published geologic data or data obtained from field investigations carried out by the applicant. The information provided shall be of such quality to be acceptable to geologists experienced in identifying and evaluating seismic activity. The information submitted shall show that either:

(A) No faults which have had displacement in Holocene time are present, or no lineations which suggest the presence of a fault, which have displacement in Holocene time, within 3,000 feet of a facility are present, based on data from:

(1) Published geologic studies,

(2) Aerial reconnaissance of the area within a five-mile radius from the facility.

(3) An analysis of aerial photographs covering a 3,000 foot radius of the facility, and

(B) If faults, to include lineations, which have had displacement in Holocene time are present within 3,000 feet of a facility, no faults pass within 200 feet of the portions of the facility where treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste will be conducted, based on data from a comprehensive geologic analysis of the site. Unless a site analysis is otherwise conclusive concerning the absence of faults within 200 feet of such portions of the facility data shall be obtained from a subsurface exploration, trenching, of the area within a distance no less than 200 feet from portions of the facility where treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste will be conducted. Such trenching shall be performed in a direction that is perpendicular to known faults, which have had displacement in Holocene time, passing within 3,000 feet of the portions of the facility where treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste will be conducted. Such investigation shall document with supporting maps and other analyses, the location of faults found. The Guidance Manual for the Location Standards provides greater detail on the content of each type of seismic investigation and the appropriate conditions under which each approach or a combination of approaches would be used.

(iii) Owners and operators of all facilities shall provide an identification of whether the facility is located within a 100-year floodplain. This identification shall indicate the source of data for such determination and include a copy of the relevant Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) flood map, if used, or the calculations and maps used where an FIA map is not available. Information shall also be provided identifying the 100-year flood level and any other special flooding factors, e.g., wave action, which shall be considered in designing, constructing, operating, or maintaining the facility to withstand washout from a 100-year flood. Where maps for the National Flood Insurance Program produced by the Federal Insurance Administration of the Federal Emergency Management Agency are available, they will normally be determinative of whether a facility is located within or outside of the 100-year floodplain. However, where the FIA map excludes an area, usually areas of the floodplain less than 200 feet in width, these areas shall be considered and a determination made as to whether they are in the 100-year floodplain. Where FIA maps are not available for a proposed facility location, the owner or operator shall use equivalent mapping techniques to determine whether the facility is within the 100-year floodplain, and if so located, what the 100-year flood elevation would be.

(iv) Owners and operators of facilities located in the 100-year floodplain shall provide the following information:

(A) Engineering analysis to indicate the various hydrodynamic and hydrostatic forces expected to result at the site as consequence of a 100-year flood.

(B) Structural or other engineering studies showing the design of operational units, e.g., tanks, incinerators, and flood protection devices, e.g., floodwalls, dikes, at the facility and how these will prevent washout.

(C) If applicable, and in lieu of Subsections R315-270-14(b)(11)(iv)(A) and (B), a detailed description of procedures to be followed to remove hazardous waste to safety before the facility is flooded, including:

(I) Timing of such movement relative to flood levels, including estimated time to move the waste, to show that such movement can be completed before floodwaters reach the facility.

(II) A description of the location(s) to which the waste will be moved and demonstration that those facilities will be eligible to receive hazardous waste in accordance with the regulations under Rules R315-270, 124, and 264 through 266.

(III) The planned procedures, equipment, and personnel to be used and the means to ensure that such resources will be available in time for use.

(IV) The potential for accidental discharges of the waste during movement.

(v) Existing facilities NOT in compliance with Subsection R315-264-18(b) shall provide a plan showing how the facility will be brought into compliance and a schedule for compliance.

(12) An outline of both the introductory and continuing training programs by owners or operators to prepare persons to operate or maintain the hazardous waste management facility in a safe manner as required to demonstrate compliance with Section R315-264-16. A brief description of how training will be designed to meet actual job tasks in accordance with requirements in Subsection R315-264-16(a)(3).

(13) A copy of the closure plan and, where applicable, the post-closure plan required by Sections R315-264-112, 118, and 197. Include, where applicable, as part of the plans, specific requirements in Sections R315-264-178, 197, 228, 258, 280, 310, 351, 601, and 603.

(14) For hazardous waste disposal units that have been closed, documentation that notices required under Section R315-264-119 have been filed.

(16) Where applicable, the most recent post-closure cost estimate for the facility prepared in accordance with Section R315-264-144 plus a copy of the documentation required to demonstrate financial assurance under Section R315-264-145. For a new facility, a copy of the required documentation may be submitted 60 days prior to the initial receipt of hazardous wastes, if that is later than the submission of the part B.

(17) Where applicable, a copy of the insurance policy or other documentation which comprises compliance with the requirements of Section R315-264-147. For a new facility, documentation showing the amount of insurance meeting the specification of Subsection R315-264-147(a) and, if applicable, Subsection R315-264-147(b), that the owner or operator plans to have in effect before initial receipt of hazardous waste for treatment, storage, or disposal. A request for a variance in the amount of required coverage, for a new or existing facility, may be submitted as specified in Subsection R315-264-147(c).

(18) Where appropriate, proof of coverage by a State financial mechanism in compliance with Section R315-264-149 or Section R315-264-150.

(3) If the permittee is undecided whether to cease conducting regulated activities, the Director may issue or modify a permit to contain two schedules as follows:

(i) Both schedules shall contain an identical interim deadline requiring a final decision on whether to cease conducting regulated activities no later than a date which ensures sufficient time to comply with applicable requirements in a timely manner if the decision is to continue conducting regulated activities;

(ii) One schedule shall lead to timely compliance with applicable requirements;

(iii) The second schedule shall lead to cessation of regulated activities by a date which shall ensure timely compliance with applicable requirements;

(iv) Each permit containing two schedules shall include a requirement that after the permittee has made a final decision under Subsection R315-270-33(b)(3)(i) it shall follow the schedule leading to compliance if the decision is to continue conducting regulated activities, and follow the schedule leading to termination if the decision is to cease conducting regulated activities.

A written agreement containing a specific date for transfer of permit responsibility between the current and new permittees shall also be submitted to the Director. When a transfer of ownership or operational control occurs, the old owner or operator shall comply with the requirements of Sections R315-264-140 through 151 until the new owner or operator has demonstrated that he or she is complying with the requirements of Sections R315-264-140 through 151. The new owner or operator shall demonstrate compliance with Sections R315-264-140 through 151 requirements within six months of the date of the change of ownership or operational control of the facility. Upon demonstration to the Director by the new owner or operator of compliance with Sections R315-264-140 through 151, the Director shall notify the old owner or operator that he or she no longer needs to comply with Sections R315-264-140 through 151 as of the date of demonstration.

R315-270-41. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Modification or Revocation and Reissuance of Permits.

When the Director receives any information; for example, inspects the facility, receives information submitted by the permittee as required in the permit, see Section R315-270-30, receives a request for revocation and reissuance under Section R315-124-5 or conducts a review of the permit file; the Director may determine whether one or more of the causes listed in Subsections R315-270-41(a) and (b) for modification, or revocation and reissuance or both exist. If cause exists, the Director may modify or revoke and reissue the permit accordingly, subject to the limitations of Subsection R315-270-41(c), and may request an updated application if necessary. When a permit is modified, only the conditions subject to modification are reopened. If a permit is revoked and reissued, the entire permit is reopened and subject to revision and the permit is reissued for a new term. See Subsection R315-124-5(c)(2). If cause does not exist under Section R315-270-41, the Director shall not modify or revoke and reissue the permit, except on request of the permittee. If a permit modification is requested by the permittee, the Director shall approve or deny the request according to the procedures of Subsection R315-270-42. Otherwise, a draft permit shall be prepared and other procedures in Rule R315-124 followed.

(a) Causes for modification. The following are causes for modification, but not revocation and reissuance, of permits; the following may be causes for revocation and reissuance, as well as modification, when the permittee requests or agrees.

(1) Alterations. There are material and substantial alterations or additions to the permitted facility or activity which occurred after permit issuance which justify the application of permit conditions that are different or absent in the existing permit.

(2) Information. The Director has received information. Permits may be modified during their terms for this cause only if the information was not available at the time of permit issuance, other than revised regulations, guidance, or test methods, and would have justified the application of different permit conditions at the time of issuance.

(3) New statutory requirements or regulations. The standards or regulations on which the permit was based have been changed by statute, through promulgation of new or amended standards or regulations, or by judicial decision after the permit was issued.

(4) Compliance schedules. The Director determines good cause exists for modification of a compliance schedule, such as an act of God, strike, flood, or materials shortage or other events over which the permittee has little or no control and for which there is no reasonably available remedy.

(5) Notwithstanding any other provision in Section R315-270-41, when a permit for a land disposal facility is reviewed by the Director under Subsection R315-270-50(d), the Director shall modify the permit as necessary to assure that the facility continues to comply with the currently applicable requirements in Rules R315-124, 260 through 266, and 270.

(b) Causes for modification or revocation and reissuance. The following are causes to modify or, alternatively, revoke and reissue a permit:

(1) Cause exists for termination under Section R315-270-43, and the Director determines that modification or revocation and reissuance is appropriate.

(2) The Director has received notification; as required in the permit, see Subsection R315-270-30(l)(3); of a proposed transfer of the permit.

(c) Facility siting. Suitability of the facility location will not be considered at the time of permit modification or revocation and reissuance unless new information or standards indicate that a threat to human health or the environment exists which was unknown at the time of permit issuance.

R315-270-68. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Remedial Action Plans (RAPs).

Remedial Action Plans (RAPs) are special forms of permits that are regulated under Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

R315-270-70. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Qualifying for Interim Status.

(a) Any person who owns or operates an "existing hazardous waste management facility" or a facility in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under the State or Federal Act that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a hazardous waste permit shall have interim status and shall be treated as having been issued a permit to the extent the owner or operator has:

(1) Complied with the requirements of section 3010(a) of RCRA pertaining to notification of hazardous waste activity or the notification requirements of Rules R315-260 through 266, 268 and 270.

Comment: Some existing facilities may not be required to file a notification under section 3010(a) of RCRA. These facilities may qualify for interim status by meeting Subsection R315-270-70(a)(2).

(2) Complied with the requirements of Section R315-270-10 governing submission of part A applications;

(b) Failure to qualify for interim status. If the Director has reason to believe upon examination of a part A application that it fails to meet the requirements of Section R315-270-13, the Director shall notify the owner or operator in writing of the apparent deficiency. Such notice shall specify the grounds for the Director's belief that the application is deficient. The owner or operator shall have 30 days from receipt to respond to such a notification and to explain or cure the alleged deficiency in the owner or operator's part A application. If, after such notification and opportunity for response, the Director determines that the application is deficient the Director may take appropriate enforcement action.

(c) Subsection R315-270-70(a) shall not apply to any facility which has been previously denied a hazardous waste permit or if authority to operate the facility under Federal or State authority has been previously terminated.

R315-270-71. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Operation During Interim Status.

(a) During the interim status period the facility shall not:

(1) Treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste not specified in part A of the permit application;

(2) Employ processes not specified in part A of the permit application; or

(3) Exceed the design capacities specified in part A of the permit application.

(b) Interim status standards. During interim status, owners or operators shall comply with the interim status standards at Rule R315-265.

R315-270-72. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Changes During Interim Status.

(a) Except as provided in Subsection R315-270-72(b), the owner or operator of an interim status facility may make the following changes at the facility:

(1) Treatment, storage, or disposal of new hazardous wastes not previously identified in part A of the permit application and, in the case of newly listed or identified wastes, addition of the units being used to treat, store, or dispose of the hazardous wastes on the effective date of the listing or identification if the owner or operator submits a revised part A permit application prior to such treatment, storage, or disposal;

(2) Increases in the design capacity of processes used at the facility if the owner or operator submits a revised part A permit application prior to such a change, along with a justification explaining the need for the change, and the Director approves the changes because:

(i) There is a lack of available treatment, storage, or disposal capacity at other hazardous waste management facilities, or

(ii) The change is necessary to comply with a Federal, State, or local requirement.

(3) Changes in the processes for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste or addition of processes if the owner or operator submits a revised part A permit application prior to such change, along with a justification explaining the need for the change, and the Director approves the change because:

(i) The change is necessary to prevent a threat to human health and the environment because of an emergency situation, or

(ii) The change is necessary to comply with a Federal, State, or local requirement.

(4) Changes in the ownership or operational control of a facility if the new owner or operator submits a revised part A permit application no later than 90 days prior to the scheduled change. When a transfer of operational control of a facility occurs, the old owner or operator shall comply with the requirements of Sections R315-265-140 through 150, until the new owner or operator has demonstrated to the Director that the owner or operator is complying with the requirements of Sections R315-265-140 through 150. The new owner or operator shall demonstrate compliance with Sections R315-265-140 through 150 within six months of the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility. Upon demonstration to the Director by the new owner or operator of compliance with Sections R315-265-140 through 150, the Director shall notify the old owner or operator in writing that he no longer needs to comply with Sections R315-265-140 through 150 as of the date of demonstration. All other interim status duties are transferred effective immediately upon the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility.

(5) Changes made in accordance with an interim status corrective action order issued under Subsection 19-6-105(d) or by EPA under section 3008(h) or other Federal authority, or by a court in a judicial action brought by EPA or by an authorized State. Changes under Subsection R315-270-72(a)(5) are limited to the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste from releases that originate within the boundary of the facility.

(6) Addition of newly regulated units for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste if the owner or operator submits a revised part A permit application on or before the date on which the unit becomes subject to the new requirements.

(b) Except as specifically allowed under Subsection R315-270-72(b), changes listed under Subsection R315-270-72(a) may not be made if they amount to reconstruction of the hazardous waste management facility. Reconstruction occurs when the capital investment in the changes to the facility exceeds 50 percent of the capital cost of a comparable entirely new hazardous waste management facility. If all other requirements are met, the following changes may be made even if they amount to a reconstruction:

(1) Changes made solely for the purposes of complying with the requirements of Section R315-265-193 for tanks and ancillary equipment.

(2) If necessary to comply with Federal, State, or local requirements, changes to an existing unit, changes solely involving tanks or containers, or addition of replacement surface impoundments that satisfy the standards of section 3004(o).

(3) Changes that are necessary to allow owners or operators to continue handling newly listed or identified hazardous wastes that have been treated, stored, or disposed of at the facility prior to the effective date of the rule establishing the new listing or identification.

(4) Changes during closure of a facility or of a unit within a facility made in accordance with an approved closure plan.

(5) Changes necessary to comply with an interim status corrective action order issued under Subsection 19-6-105(d), or by EPA under section 3008(h) or other Federal authority, or by a court in a judicial proceeding brought by EPA or an authorized State, provided that such changes are limited to the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste from releases that originate within the boundary of the facility.

(6) Changes to treat or store, in tanks, containers, or containment buildings, hazardous wastes subject to land disposal restrictions imposed by Rule R315-268 or RCRA section 3004, provided that such changes are made solely for the purpose of complying with Rule R315-268 or RCRA section 3004.

(7) Addition of newly regulated units under Subsection R315-27-72(a)(6).

(8) Changes necessary to comply with standards under 40 CFR part 63, Subpart EEE-National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants From Hazardous Waste Combustors, which is incorporated by reference in Subsection R307-214-2(39).

R315-270-73. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Termination of Interim Status.

Interim status terminates when:

(a) Final administrative disposition of a permit application, except an application for a remedial action plan (RAP) under Sections R315-270-79 through 230 is made.

(b) Interim status is terminated as provided in Subsection R315-270-10(e)(5).

(c) For owners or operators of each land disposal facility which has been granted interim status prior to November 8, 1984, on November 8, 1985, unless:

(1) The owner or operator submits a part B application for a permit for such facility prior to that date; and

(2) The owner or operator certifies that such facility is in compliance with all applicable ground-water monitoring and financial responsibility requirements.

(d) For owners or operators of each land disposal facility which is in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under the Federal Act, or Section 19-6-108, that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a hazardous waste permit and which is granted interim status, twelve months after the date on which the facility first becomes subject to such permit requirement unless the owner or operator of such facility:

(1) Submits a part B application for a hazardous waste permit for such facility before the date 12 months after the date on which the facility first becomes subject to such permit requirement; and

(2) Certifies that such facility is in compliance with all applicable ground water monitoring and financial responsibility requirements.

(e) For owners or operators of any land disposal unit that is granted authority to operate under Subsections R315-270-72(a) (1), (2) or (3), on the date 12 months after the effective date of such requirement, unless the owner or operator certifies that such unit is in compliance with all applicable ground-water monitoring and financial responsibility requirements.

(f) For owners and operators of each incinerator facility which has achieved interim status prior to November 8, 1984, interim status terminates on November 8, 1989, unless the owner or operator of the facility submits a part B application for a hazardous waste permit for an incinerator facility by November 8, 1986.

(g) For owners or operators of any facility, other than a land disposal or an incinerator facility, which has achieved interim status prior to November 8, 1984, interim status terminates on November 8, 1992, unless the owner or operator of the facility submits a part B application for a hazardous waste permit for the facility by November 8, 1988.

R315-270-79. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Why Sections R315-79 through 230 Written In A Special Format?

Sections R315-270-79 through 230 are written in a special format to make it easier to understand the regulatory requirements. Like other rules adopted the Board, this establishes enforceable legal requirements. For Sections R315-270-79 through 230, "I" and "you" refer to the owner/operator.

R315-270-80. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- What is a RAP?

(a) A RAP is a special form of hazardous waste permit that you, as an owner or operator, may obtain, instead of a permit issued under Sections R315-270-3 through 66, to authorize you to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous remediation waste, as defined in Section R315-260-10, at a remediation waste management site. A RAP may only be issued for the area of contamination where the remediation wastes to be managed under the RAP originated, or areas in close proximity to the contaminated area, except as allowed in limited circumstances under Section R315-270-230.

(b) The requirements in Sections R315-270-3 through 66 do not apply to RAPs unless those requirements for traditional permits are specifically required under Sections R315-270-80 through 230. The definitions in Section R315-270-2 apply to RAPs.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of Rule R315-270 or Rule R315-124, any document that meets the requirements in Section R315-270-80 constitutes a hazardous waste permit Section 19-6-108.

(d) A RAP may be:

(1) A stand-alone document that includes only the information and conditions required by Sections R315-270-79 through 230; or

(2) Part, or parts, of another document that includes information and/or conditions for other activities at the remediation waste management site, in addition to the information and conditions required by Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

(e) If you are treating, storing, or disposing of hazardous remediation wastes as part of a cleanup compelled by Federal or State cleanup authorities, your RAP does not affect your obligations under those authorities in any way.

(f) If you receive a RAP at a facility operating under interim status, the RAP does not terminate your interim status.

R315-270-85. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- When Do I Need a Rap?

(a) Whenever you treat, store, or dispose of hazardous remediation wastes in a manner that requires a permit under Section R315-270-1, you shall either obtain:

(1) A permit according to Sections R315-270-3 through 66; or

(2) A RAP according to Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

(b) Treatment units that use combustion of hazardous remediation wastes at a remediation waste management site are not eligible for RAPs under Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

(c) You may obtain a RAP for managing hazardous remediation waste at an already permitted hazardous waste facility. You shall have these RAPs approved as a modification to your existing permit according to the requirements of Section R315-270-41 or 42 instead of the requirements in Sections R315-270-79 through 230. When you submit an application for such a modification, however, the information requirements in Subsections R315-270-42(a)(1)(i), (b)(1)(iv), and (c)(1)(iv) do not apply; instead, you shall submit the information required under Section R315-270-110. When your permit is modified the RAP becomes part of the hazardous waste permit. Therefore when your permit, including the RAP portion, is modified, revoked and reissued, terminated or when it expires, it will be modified according to the applicable requirements in Sections R315-270-40 through 42, revoked and reissued according to the applicable requirements in Sections R315-270-41 and 43, terminated according to the applicable requirements in Section R315-270-43, and expire according to the applicable requirements in Sections R315-270-50 and 51.

R315-270-90. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Does My Rap Grant Me Any Rights or Relieve Me of Any Obligations?

The provisions of Section R315-270-4 apply to RAPs. Note: The provisions of Subsection R315-270-4(a) provide you assurance that, as long as you comply with your RAP, the Director shall consider you in compliance with the rules adopted under Sections 19-6-101 through 125, and will not take enforcement actions against you. However, you should be aware of four exceptions to this provision that are listed in Section R315-270-4.

R315-270-95. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- How Do I Apply for a Rap?

To apply for a RAP, you shall complete an application, sign it, and submit it to the Director according to the requirements in Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

R315-270-100. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Who Shall Obtain a Rap?

When a facility or remediation waste management site is owned by one person, but the treatment, storage or disposal activities are operated by another person, it is the operator's duty to obtain a RAP, except that the owner shall also sign the RAP application.

R315-270-105. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- Who Shall Sign the Application and Any Required Reports for a Rap?

Both the owner and the operator shall sign the RAP application and any required reports according to Subsections R315-270-11(a), (b), and (c). In the application, both the owner and the operator shall also make the certification required under Subsection R315-270-11(d)(1). However, the owner may choose the alternative certification under Subsection R315-270-11(d)(2) if the operator certifies under Subsection R315-270-11(d)(1).

Sections 63G-2-101 through 901 allows you to claim as confidential any or all of the information you submit to the Director under Sections R315-270-79 through 230. You shall assert any such claim by following the requirements of Section 63G-2-309. If you do assert a claim at the time you submit the information, the Director shall treat the information according to the procedures in Sections 63G-2-101 through 901. If you do not assert a claim at the time you submit the information, the Director may make the information available to the public without further notice to you. The Director shall deny any requests for confidentiality of your name and/or address.

R315-270-120. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- To Whom Shall I Submit My Rap Application?

You shall submit your application for a RAP to the Director for approval.

R315-270-125. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- If I Submit My Rap Application as Part of Another Document, What Shall I Do?

If you submit your application for a RAP as a part of another document, you shall clearly identify the components of that document that constitute your RAP application.

R315-270-130. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- What Is the Process for Approving or Denying My Application for a Rap?

(a) If the Director tentatively finds that your RAP application includes all of the information required by Section R315-270-110 and that your proposed remediation waste management activities meet the regulatory standards, the Director shall make a tentative decision to approve your RAP application. The Director shall then prepare a draft RAP and provide an opportunity for public comment before making a final decision on your RAP application, according to Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

(b) If the Director tentatively finds that your RAP application does not include all of the information required by Section R315-270-110 or that your proposed remediation waste management activities do not meet the regulatory standards, the Director may request additional information from you or ask you to correct deficiencies in your application. If you fail or refuse to provide any additional information the Director requests, or to correct any deficiencies in your RAP application, the Director may make a tentative decision to deny your RAP application. After making this tentative decision, the Director shall prepare a notice of intent to deny your RAP application and provide an opportunity for public comment before making a final decision on your RAP application, according to the requirements in Sections R315-270-79 through 230. The Director may deny the RAP application either in its entirety or in part.

If you have submitted a timely and complete application for a RAP renewal, but the Director, through no fault of yours, has not issued a new RAP with an effective date on or before the expiration date of your previous RAP, your previous RAP conditions continue in force until the effective date of your new RAP or RAP denial.

R315-270-210. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- What Records Shall I Maintain Concerning My Rap?

You are required to keep records of:

(a) All data used to complete RAP applications and any supplemental information that you submit for a period of at least 3 years from the date the application is signed; and

(b) Any operating and/or other records the Director requires you to maintain as a condition of your RAP.

R315-270-215. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- How Are Time Periods in the Requirements in Sections R315-27-79 through 230 and My Rap Computed?

(a) Any time period scheduled to begin on the occurrence of an act or event shall begin on the day after the act or event. For example, if your RAP specifies that you shall close a staging pile within 180 days after the operating term for that staging pile expires, and the operating term expires on June 1, then June 2 counts as day one of your 180 days, and you would have to complete closure by November 28.

(b) Any time period scheduled to begin before the occurrence of an act or event shall be computed so that the period ends on the day before the act or event. For example, if you are transferring ownership or operational control of your site, and wish to transfer your RAP, the new owner or operator shall submit a revised RAP application no later than 90 days before the scheduled change. Therefore, if you plan to change ownership on January 1, the new owner/operator shall submit the revised RAP application no later than October 3, so that the 90th day would be December 31.

(c) If the final day of any time period falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the time period shall be extended to the next working day. For example, if you wish to appeal the Director's decision to modify your RAP, then you shall file the appeal within 30 days after the Director has issued the final RAP decision. If the 30th day falls on Sunday, then you may submit your appeal by the Monday after. If the 30th day falls on July 4th, then you may submit your appeal by July 5th.

(d) Whenever a party or interested person has the right to or is required to act within a prescribed period after the service of notice or other paper upon him by mail, 3 days shall be added to the prescribed term. For example, if you wish to appeal the Director's decision to modify your RAP, then you shall file the appeal within 30 days after the Director has issued the final RAP decision. However, if the Director notifies you of his decision by mail, then you may have 33 days to file.

R315-270-220. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- How May I Transfer My Rap to a New Owner or Operator?

(a) If you wish to transfer your RAP to a new owner or operator, you shall follow the requirements specified in your RAP for RAP modification to identify the new owner or operator, and incorporate any other necessary requirements. These modifications do not constitute "significant" modifications for purposes of Section R315-270-170. The new owner/operator shall submit a revised RAP application no later than 90 days before the scheduled change along with a written agreement containing a specific date for transfer of RAP responsibility between you and the new permittees.

(b) When a transfer of ownership or operational control occurs, you as the old owner or operator shall comply with the applicable requirements in Section R315-264-140 through 151 until the new owner or operator has demonstrated that he is complying with the requirements in Section R315-264-140 through 151. The new owner or operator shall demonstrate compliance with Section R315-264-140 through 151 within six months of the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility or remediation waste management site. When the new owner/operator demonstrates compliance with Section R315-264-140 through 151 to the Director, the Director shall notify you that you no longer need to comply with Section R315-264-140 through 151 as of the date of demonstration.

R315-270-230. Hazardous Waste Permit Program -- May I Perform Remediation Waste Management Activities Under a Rap at a Location Removed From the Area Where the Remediation Wastes Originated?

(a) You may request a RAP for remediation waste management activities at a location removed from the area where the remediation wastes originated if you believe such a location would be more protective than the contaminated area or areas in close proximity.

(b) If the Director determines that an alternative location, removed from the area where the remediation waste originated, is more protective than managing remediation waste at the area of contamination or areas in close proximity, then the Director may approve a RAP for this alternative location.

(c) You shall request the RAP, and the Director shall approve or deny the RAP, according to the procedures and requirements in Sections R315-270-79 through 230.

(d) A RAP for an alternative location shall also meet the following requirements, which the Director shall include in the RAP for such locations:

(1) The RAP for the alternative location shall be issued to the person responsible for the cleanup from which the remediation wastes originated;

(2) The RAP is subject to the expanded public participation requirements in Sections R315-124-31, 32, and 33;

(3) The RAP is subject to the public notice requirements in Subsection R315-124-10(c);

(4) The site permitted in the RAP may not be located within 61 meters or 200 feet of a fault which has had displacement in the Holocene time, you shall demonstrate compliance with this standard through the requirements in Subsection R315-270-14(b)(11), See definitions of terms in Subsection R315-264-18(a);

(e) These alternative locations are remediation waste management sites, and retain the following benefits of remediation waste management sites:

(1) Exclusion from facility-wide corrective action under Section R315-264-101; and

(2) Application of Subsection R315-264-1(j) in lieu of Sections R315-264-10 through 56.
