Title:LAND DISPOSAL UNIT CLOSURE - CLARIFICATION OF PROPOSED AND PROMULGATED RULES
RCRA Online Number:12514
Date:12/13/1985
To:Eagan
From:Williams
Organization of Recipient:URS Engineers
Description: A land disposal unit that closes prior to the effective date of any regulation listing or characterizing a waste in the unit as hazardous is not regulated under Subtitle C (active management). The same unit located at an interim status facility or a facility seeking a permit may be subject to portions of HSWA. Under 3004(o)(1)(A), landfill and surface impoundment permits must require the installation of liners, leachate collection systems, and groundwater monitoring systems (minimum technological requirements (MTR)). Section 3005(j) requires interim status surface impoundments in existence on 11/8/84 to be in compliance with MTR (3004(o)) by 11/8/88. A surface impoundment that becomes regulated after 11/8/84 due to a new listing or characteristic is subject to the minimum technological requirements (MTR) four years from date of a new listing or characteristic (3005(j) and 3004(o)(1)). A land disposal unit that is not required to obtain a RCRA permit and not otherwise subject to HSWA does not have to be retrofitted under 3004(o).
