Article 5.95. Construction and Demolition Waste and Inert Debris Disposal Regulatory Requirements

Section 17388.3. Inert Debris Engineered Fill Operations.
Inert debris engineered fill operations shall submit EA Notifications, as set forth in CCR, Title 14, Section 18100 et seq. and shall comply with all applicable RWQCB waste discharge requirements.

(a) Each operator of an inert debris engineered fill operation shall submit a copy of its waste discharge requirements or a letter of exemption from the applicable RWQCB to the EA together with its notification of intent to operate.

(b) Inert debris engineered fill operations shall be inspected as necessary by the EA to verify compliance with State Minimum Standards. Inspections shall be conducted quarterly, unless the EA determines a lesser frequency is sufficient, but in no case shall the inspection frequency be less than annual.

(c) Each operator of an inert debris engineered fill operation shall file an "Operation Plan" (as specified in this Article, Section 17390) with the EA together with its notification of intent to operate. The information contained in the Plan shall be reviewed by the EA to determine whether it is complete and correct as defined in CCR, Title 14, Section 18101.

(d) All inert debris engineered fill operations shall comply with the State Minimum Standards set forth in Title 27 CCR, Division 2, Chapter 3.0, Subchapter 4, Article 1 (Operating Criteria), Article 3 (Handling, Equipment and Maintenance), and Article 4 (Controls) (except sections 20515, 20640, 20880, and 20890).

(e) By March 1 of each year, the operator shall report to the EA and the board the total amount of inert debris deposited during the previous year. However, the operator is not subject to the disposal reporting record requirements of Title 14 CCR, Division 7, Chapter 9, Article 9.2 or the disposal fee specified in Public Resources Code Section 48000 and Revenue and Taxation Code Section 45151.

(f) All inert debris engineered fill operations, upon completion of cessation of fill activities for more than one year and upon any transfer of any part of the land subject to the operation prior to completion of fill activities, shall comply with the requirements in Title 27, subsections 21170(a)(1, 2 and, if applicable, 3).

(g) Upon the final placement of waste at the site, the operator shall cover the site of fill with three feet of compacted soil above the fill area or with other final cover as determined by the EA. The EA may determine, on the basis of substantial evidence, that a lesser amount of final cover or no final cover is needed, based on potential impacts to the public health, safety and the environment.

(h) If an inert debris engineered fill operation exceeds any combination of the following requirements three (3) or more times within any two (2) year period which the EA determines constitutes a violation of this Article, the facility no longer qualifies for an EA Notification under this section. Upon the third such violation, the EA shall notify the operator in writing that the facility no longer qualifies for an EA Notification, and the operator must within 30 days apply for a Full Permit as if it were a CDI Waste Disposal Facility pursuant to Section 17388.5. In addition, the EA shall issue a cease and desist order pursuant to Section 18304 directing, among other things, that the operator immediately cease accepting material at the site until the operator has demonstrated to the EA that it has corrected the violation and eliminated the cause of the violation. Notwithstanding, the EA may at any time take any additional enforcement action the EA deems appropriate. The requirements to which this subdivision applies are:

(1) Disposal of any wastes not authorized by subsection 17388(l);

(2) Failure to comply with the requirements for certification by an engineer specified in subsection 17388(l);

(3) Failure to comply with requirements for operator certification of materials disposed in the fill as required by subsection 17388(l).

(i) Inert debris engineered fill operations are not required to meet the notification requirements of this Article if the operation is occurring at a disposal facility that has a full solid waste facilities permit and the permit authorizes the activity either through a specific condition in the permit or as described and approved in the Report of Disposal Site Information.

Section 17388.4. Inert Debris Type A Disposal Facilities.
Inert debris Type A disposal facilities shall obtain Registration Permits and shall comply with the Registration Permit requirements as set forth in CCR, Title 14, Division 7, Chapter 5.0, Article 3.0 (commencing at Section 18100), with the following requirements set out in CCR, Title 27, Division 2, Chapter 4, Subchapter 3, Article 2 (commencing at Section 21570) in the same manner as if they were municipal solid waste landfills, CCR, Title 14, Division 7, Chapter 9, and with all RWQCB waste discharge requirements.

(a) Each operator of an inert debris Type A disposal facility shall submit a copy of its waste discharge requirements or a letter of exemption from the applicable RWQCB to the EA together with its application for a Registration Permit.

(b) Inert debris Type A disposal facilities shall be inspected monthly by the EA in accordance with Public Resources Code Section 43218.

(c) Each operator shall file with the EA, together with its application for a solid waste facilities permit, a Disposal Facility Plan (as more fully described in CCR, Title 14, Division 7, Chapter 5, Article 3.2, Section 18223.6).

(d) Each operator must comply with the closure and postclosure maintenance requirements of Title 27, CCR, Division 2, Subchapter 5, Article 2 (commencing with Section 21099).

(e) Each operator must comply with the financial assurance requirements for closure and postclosure maintenance, operating liability and corrective action set forth in Title 27 CCR, Division 2, Chapter 6 (commencing at Section 22200).

(f) The EA shall comply with the Enforcement Agency Requirements of Title 27 CCR, Division 2, Chapter 4, Subchapter 3, Article 3, commencing with Section 21650.

(g) Inert debris Type A disposal facilities shall maintain disposal reporting records and comply with the requirements set forth in Title 14 CCR, Division 7, Chapter 9, Article 9.2 (Disposal Reporting System), commencing at Section 18800.

(i) Each operator shall determine the weight of all material received at the facility for disposal and shall maintain records of the weight of materials as required herein. Until February 24, 2005, weight of material shall be determined by a conversion factor authorized by the EA for each waste type received. After that date, weight shall be determined by the use of scales, which may be located at the operation or off-site. Notwithstanding, operations in a rural city or rural county, as defined in Public Resources Code Sections 40183 and 40184, and operations that will cease activities within three years from February 24, 2004, as reflected in their Operation Plan may determine the weight of materials received by use of conversion factors authorized by the EA for each waste type or combination thereof received. Evidence of the accuracy of the conversion factors shall be provided to the EA annually.

(j) If an inert debris Type A disposal facility accepts for disposal any waste not authorized by, or pursuant to, Subsection 17388(k)(1) three (3) or more times within any two (2) year period which the EA determines constitutes a violation of this Article, the facility no longer qualifies for a Registration Permit under this Section. Upon the third such violation, the EA shall notify the operator in writing that the facility no longer qualifies for a Registration Permit, and the operator must within 30 days apply for a Full Solid Waste Facilities Permit as if it were a CDI Waste Disposal Facility pursuant to Section 17388.5. In addition, the EA shall issue a cease and desist order pursuant to Section 18304 directing, among other things, that the operator immediately cease accepting material at the site until the operator has demonstrated to the EA that it has corrected the violation and eliminated the cause of the violation. Notwithstanding, the EA may at any time take any additional enforcement action the EA deems appropriate.

After that date, weight shall be determined by the use of scales, which may be located at the operation or off-site. Notwithstanding, operations in a rural city or rural county, as defined in Public Resources Code Sections 40183 and 40184, and operations that will cease activities within three years from February 24, 2004, as reflected in their Operations Plan may determine the weight of materials received by use of conversion factors authorized by the EA for each waste type or combination thereof received.
