§ 21760. SWRCB - Design Report and Operations Plan. (C15: s2596)

(a) Design Report.

(1) Preliminary and As-Built Plans -As part of the report of waste discharge ("ROWD", including any such report integrated into a Joint Technical Document, pursuant to s21585), dischargers who own or operate classified waste management units (Units) shall submit, for each such Unit, detailed preliminary and (later, after completion) as-built plans, specifications, and descriptions for all liners (under s20330) and other containment structures (e.g., final cover, under s21090), leachate collection and removal system components (under s20340), leak detection system components [under s20415(b-d)], precipitation and drainage control facilities (under s20365), and interim covers installed or to be installed or used (under s20705). In addition, the ROWD shall contain a description of, and location data for, ancillary facilities including roads, waste handling areas, buildings, and equipment cleaning facilities, only insofar as the location and operation of these ancillary facilities could have an effect upon water quality.

(2) [Reserved.]

(3) Monitoring System Plans and Rationale -Dischargers shall submit detailed plans and equipment specifications for compliance with the ground water and unsaturated zone monitoring requirements of Article 1, Subchapter 3, Chapter 3, Subdivision 1 of this division (s20380 et seq.). Dischargers shall provide a technical report which includes rationale for the spatial distribution of ground water and unsaturated zone monitoring facilities, [e.g., the location and design of Monitoring Points and Background Monitoring Points for each monitored medium under s20415(b-e)], and for the selection of other monitoring equipment. This report shall be accompanied by the following information, which shall be updated throughout the Unit's active life, closure period, and post-closure maintenance period as needed to reflect the as-built system:

(A) Map -a map showing the locations of proposed monitoring facility components; and

(B) Plans & Specifications -drawings and data showing construction details of proposed monitoring facilities. These data shall include:

1.casing and test hole diameter;

2.casing materials (PVC, stainless steel, etc.);

3.depth of each test hole;

4.the means by which the size and position of perforations shall be determined, or verified, in the field;

5.method of joining sections of casing;

6.nature of filter material;

7.depth and composition of seals;

8.method and length of time of development; and

(C) Unsaturated Zone Monitoring -specifications, drawings, and data for location and installation of unsaturated zone monitoring equipment.

(4) Inspection Procedures -Dischargers shall submit proposed construction and inspection procedures for the Unit [including, after July 18, 1997, a CQA Plan under s21710(a)(5)] to the RWQCB for approval.

(b) Operation Plans -Dischargers shall submit operation plans describing those Unit operations which could affect water quality, including but not limited to:

(1) a description of proposed treatment, storage, and disposal methods;

(2) contingency plans for the failure or breakdown of waste handling facilities or containment systems, including notice of any such failure, or any detection of waste or leachate in monitoring facilities, to the RWQCB, local governments, and water users downgradient of Units; and

(3) a description of inspection and maintenance programs which will be undertaken regularly during disposal operations and the post-closure maintenance period.
