§ 21132. SWRCB - Landfill Emergency Response Plan Review. (new)
(a) Review & Notification -For landfills, the RWQCB shall review the emergency response plan, in coordination with the Enforcement Agency (EA), to assure that no proposed response to a foreseeable emergency will result in a threat, or increased threat, to beneficial uses of waters of the state.
(b) Submittal -For landfills for which the CIWMB requires an emergency response plan (e.g., pursuant to s21130), the discharger shall submit a copy of that plan, including any proposed amendments thereto, to the RWQCB. For landfills having an existing emergency response plan that has already been reviewed by the RWQCB, the discharger need not resubmit the plan for review by the RWQCB until such time as the plan is amended. For landfills having an existing emergency response plan (i.e., approved by the EA) that has not as yet been reviewed by the RWQCB, the discharger shall submit a current copy of the plan for RWQCB review prior to July 18, 1998. For proposed emergency response plans (including proposed amendments to an existing plan), this submittal shall occur at the same time as the discharger submits the proposed plan to the EA.
(c) Coordinate On New Response -In the event that the discharger proposes to respond to an emergency in a manner other than specified in the emergency response plan, the RWQCB shall coordinate with the EA to assure that the proposed response does not pose a threat to water quality.(1. New section filed 6-18-97; operative 7-18-97 (Register 97, No. 25).)
