Section 21585 - SWRCB -Joint Technical Document (JTD). (new) (California Code of Regulations)

§ 21585. SWRCB -Joint Technical Document (JTD). (new)

Regulations in this section were promulgated by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), are administered by the appropriate Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) through the issuance of waste discharge requirements (WDRs) or other enforceable orders, and are applicable both to the RWQCB and to the owner or operator of a waste management unit (Unit) for the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste, in cases where the Unit is jointly regulated by the RWQCB and by one or more other state agencies.

(a) JTD Addresses All Post-CUP Permitting Agency Requirements -After July 18, 1997, for any Unit jointly regulated by the RWQCB and another state agency (or agencies), the report of waste discharge (ROWD) submitted to the RWQCB in support of the development or revision of WDRs for that Unit shall be in the form of a joint technical document (JTD) which includes all applicable information required under Article 4 of Subchapter 3 of this chapter (s21710 et seq.), in addition to all information necessary to support the development (or modification, as appropriate) and issuance of any state or local agency permits, other than the conditional use permit, that are required to operate the Unit (including but not limited to the lateral expansion of any Unit).

(1) JTD Submittal Date -For new Units for which the ROWD is initially submitted (as part of the application for WDRs) after July 18, 1997, the discharger shall submit the ROWD in the form of a JTD when applying for WDRs for the Unit. For all other new Units and for existing Units, the discharger need not reorganize and resubmit, as a JTD, those portions of the ROWD submitted prior to July 18, 1997. For new and existing Units, after July 18, 1997, except for scheduled monitoring reports, each submittal regarding the Unit, whether initiated by the discharger or requested by RWQCB, shall be made in the form of a separate addendum to the JTD, pursuant to ¶(a)(4).

(2) JTD Scope -The discharger is responsible for identifying all state and local agencies for which the JTD will serve as a joint permitting information document, pursuant to ¶(a). Nevertheless, for a landfill, the list of agencies addressed in the JTD shall include at least the RWQCB, the CIWMB, the EA, and the AQMD or APCD.

(3) Integration -The discharger is free to organize the JTD in any manner that maximizes the readability and compactness of the document. Nevertheless, to the extent feasible, with respect to any portion of the JTD that discusses a subject of regulatory concern to more than one agency, the discharger shall integrate the discussion to satisfy the concerns of all agencies concerned with that subject. Likewise, to the extent feasible, for facilities having more than one Unit, the JTD shall address topics which are germane to all Units at the facility (e.g., the hydrogeology of the facility and surrounding area) in a manner which integrates and incorporates all concerns applicable to each individual Unit and to the facility in general.

(4) JTD Addenda -After July 18, 1997, each submittal made to any permitting agency encompassed by the JTD shall be in the form of a numerically-sequential addendum to the JTD (i.e., Addendum 76 would be followed by Addendum 77). For any given topic being addressed by a given addendum, the discharger shall send a copy of that addendum simultaneously to each permitting agency listing that topic in their agency- specific JTD Index, and shall include an updated JTD page listing for each Water Board JTD index line-item [under ¶(b)] that is addressed by that addendum.

(b) Water Board (JTD) Index -As of July 18, 1997, each RWQCB shall make available to the discharger (both in hard copy and on magnetic media) a JTD index (Water Board Index) listing, by unique line-item number, each topic which the JTD must address to provide the RWQCB information needed to write and adopt or revise WDRs. For each line item (i.e., for each separately listed topic) in the Water Board Index, the discharger shall list all JTD pages (by page number or ranges thereof) addressing that topic. In cases where the preliminary or final closure and post-closure maintenance plan is submitted as a separable part of the JTD, as allowed by s21769(a), the component parts of the plan shall nevertheless be listed as part of the JTD index.

(c) Coordination -Upon the submittal of a new JTD or addendum, the RWQCB shall concentrate the initial review upon those line-items in the Water Board Index which are coded as being of joint interest with other agencies. Regarding all such joint-interest line-items in the Water Board Index, the RWQCB shall coordinate with staff from the other interested agencies, as appropriate, to ensure that WDRs (or proposed changes thereto) do not duplicate or conflict with the requirements of the other agencies.
