§ 880-X-10D-.19. Hydrologic Balance: Acid-Forming And Toxic-Forming Materials
Drainage from acid-forming and toxic-forming underground development waste and spoil, if any, into ground and surface water shall be avoided by --
(a) Identifying, burying, or treating, where necessary, waste and spoil which, in the judgment of the State Regulatory Authority, may be detrimental to vegetation or may adversely affect water quality, if not treated or buried;
(b) Preventing water from coming into contact with acid-forming and toxic-forming materials in accordance with Rule 880-X-10D-.50; and
(c) Burying or otherwise treating all acid-forming or toxic-forming underground development waste and spoil after they are first exposed on the mine site within a period required by the State Regulatory Authority. Temporary storage of such materials may be approved by the State Regulatory Authority upon a finding that immediate burial or treatment is not feasible and will not result in any material risk of water pollution or other environmental damage. Materials shall be stored only until burial or treatment becomes feasible. Acid-forming and toxic-forming underground development waste and spoil to be stored shall be placed on impermeable material and protected from erosion and contact with surface water.
