Proposed Changes to 62-701 • 62-701.510(9) Water Quality Rqm’ts – Submit monitoring data electronically – Submit within 60 days from completion of laboratory analyses – Submit Technical report • every 2.5 years during the active life of the facility. • Every 5 years during long-term care Proposed Changes to 62-701 • 62-701.520 Special waste Handling – Contaminated soil • Not haz waste • Runoff or infiltration collected by leachate system • Untreated only at Class I landfill – Animal carcasses • Class I Landfill • Property where they died Proposed Changes to 62-701 • 62-701.600 Landfill Final Closure – The landfill closure section is rewritten, with a number of outdated or unnecessary provisions eliminated. – Official Date of Closing • Entire landfill, not portion – Unless can be monitored separately Proposed Changes to 62-701 • 62-701.620 Long Term Care (1) The current rule allows the Department to extend long-term care period if closure is found to be "ineffective."
