Title:REVISIONS TO THE MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE LANDFILL CRITERIA TO PROVIDE FLEXIBILITY TO STATES WITH EPA-APPROVED PROGRAMS
RCRA Online Number:14227
Date:05/01/1996
To:Cooley
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:US House of Representatives
Description: The Land Disposal Program Flexibility Act of 1996 requires EPA to promulgate revisions to the municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) criteria to provide flexibility to states with approved programs to allow MSWLFs receiving less than 20 tons per day to use alternative frequencies for daily cover application and gas monitoring, and to allow alternative final covers and means to demonstrate financial assurance. The revisions must be promulgated by March 26, 1998. EPA is unable to predict a schedule for final rule promulgation. EPA believes small communities can carry out the current requirements without imposing a major resource burden (SEE ALSO: 62 FR 40708; 7/29/97).
