The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a plan to implement the emissions guidelines and compliance times for municipal solid waste landfills (MSW Landfills EG) for existing MSW landfills where state plans or tribal plans are not in effect, as reported in the Federal Register.
This proposed plan includes the same elements as required for a state plan: Identification of legal authority and mechanisms for implementation; inventory of designated facilities; emissions inventory; emission limits; compliance schedules; a process for the EPA or state review of design plans for site-specific gas collection and control systems; testing, monitoring, reporting and recordkeeping requirements; public hearing requirements; and progress reporting requirements. Additionally, this action summarizes implementation and delegation of authority of the MSW Landfills Federal Plan.
Comments must be received on or before October 7. EPA will hold a public hearing on September 6 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
