EPA revise the landfill criteria EPA’s policy is that all comments promulgated under paragraph (1) of received will be included in the public Section 4004(a) and Section 1008(a)(3). docket without change including any Section 4005(c) of RCRA, as amended personal information provided, unless VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:56 Dec 10, 2014 Jkt 235001 PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 by the Hazardous Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) of 1984, requires states to develop and implement permit programs to ensure that MSWLFs and non-municipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units that receive household hazardous waste or CESQG hazardous waste are in compliance with the revised criteria for the design and operation of non-municipal, nonhazardous waste disposal units under 40 CFR part 257, subpart B and MSWLFs under 40 CFR part 258. (40 CFR part 257, subpart B and 40 CFR part 258 are henceforth referred to as the ‘‘revised federal criteria’’). Section 4005(c) of RCRA further mandates the EPA Administrator to determine the adequacy of state permit programs to ensure owner and/or operator compliance with the revised federal criteria. A state program that is deemed adequate to ensure compliance may afford flexibility to owners or operators in the approaches they use to meet federal requirements, significantly reducing the burden associated with compliance. In response to the statutory requirement in § 4005(c), the EPA developed 40 CFR part 239, commonly referred to as the State Implementation Rule (SIR). The SIR describes the state application, the EPA review procedures and defines the elements of an adequate state permit program. The collection of information from the state during the permit program adequacy determination process allows the EPA to evaluate whether a program for which approval is requested is appropriate in structure and authority to ensure owner or operator compliance with the revised federal criteria. The SIR does not require the use of a particular application form. Section 239.3 of the SIR, however, requires that all state applications contain the following five components: (1) A transmittal letter requesting permit program approval. (2) A narrative description of the state permit program, including a demonstration that the state’s standards for non-municipal, non-hazardous waste disposal units that receive CESQG hazardous waste are technically comparable to the Part 257, Subpart B criteria and/or that its MSWLF standards are technically comparable to the Part 258 criteria. (3) A legal certification demonstrating that the state has the authority to carry out the program. (4) Copies of state laws, regulations, and guidance that the state believes demonstrate program adequacy. (5) Copies of relevant state-tribal agreements if the state has negotiated E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
