Title:CLOSURE AND POST-CLOSURE ISSUES FOR INTERIM STATUS SURFACE IMPOUNDMENTS
RCRA Online Number:13110
Date:12/17/1987
To:Greaves, Region 3
From:Williams
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: EPA may extend the time allowed for the closure of a surface impoundment to allow groundwater corrective action so that the owner can achieve clean closure. Units closing by removal under Part 265 (e.g. surface impoundments, waste piles, and land treatment units) must obtain post-closure permits unless the owner demonstrates equivalence with 264.228, 264.280(e), or 264.258 closure by decontamination standards (SEE ALSO: 63 FR 56711; 10/22/98). The owner of an interim status landfill that has closed by removal and has not triggered groundwater assessment does not have to monitor groundwater for the full list of Appendix VIII or IX constituents. Groundwater evaluation conducted as part of the 265 clean-closure demonstration should establish constituents that could reasonably be expected to exist at the impoundment. A surface impoundment that has triggered groundwater assessment may not be able to clean close.
