Abstract:
The EPA is proposing clarifications to the final rule entitled "Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills" (61 FR 9905, March 12, 1996). We propose to clarify who is responsible for compliance activities conducted on-site; to clarify what constitutes treated landfill gas; to correct omission of an exemption for specific boilers and process heaters from the initial performance test; and to address compliance activities conducted by third parties with systems located off-site.
The proposed amendments will not change the basic control requirements of the final rule or the level of health protection it provides, but will improve implementation, compliance, and regulatory flexibility while reducing unnecessary regulatory burden.
