Description: Precipitation run-off (PRO) is not presumed to be a hazardous waste. Mixtures of hazardous waste leachate and PRO are hazardous. PRO from active portions of landfills/waste piles is presumed to be hazardous due to mixing with the leachate. PRO from closed portions of landfills is presumed to be nonhazardous. PRO from land-treatment units is presumed to be nonhazardous. PRO is a liquid which flows over and quickly off the land. PRO is excluded from the derived-from rule. PRO is hazardous if it exhibits a characteristic or is mixed with a hazardous waste. Leachate refers to liquid that has made significant contact with hazardous waste. Leachate from a characteristic waste is presumed hazardous until it is shown not to be hazardous. Under the mixture rule, waste mixtures containing a characteristic waste are like other solid waste and are hazardous if they exhibit a characteristic.
