- See section 20080 for applicability to existing facilities.
- Waste in any category may be discharged at Units with higher levels of containment ability.
- Wastes suitable for land treatment in any category may be discharged at land treatment facilities.
- See Article 4, Subchapter 3, Chapter 3 of this subdivision.
- See Article 3, Subchapter 3, Chapter 3 of this subdivision.
- Certain hazardous wastes may be discharged at Class II or Class III Units (e.g., asbestos waste going to a Class III landfill), see sections 20200(a)(1) & 20210(a)(2).
- Leachate collection and removal system (LCRS) required.
- Single liner may be acceptable, see Table 4.1.
- Suitable natural features may satisfy requirements for outer liner where double liners are needed. Single replaceable clay liner (no LCRS) also acceptable.
- Suitable natural features may satisfy primary containment requirement.
- LCRS required as appropriate.
- Units at sites not meeting siting and geologic criteria must have a single clay liner and LCRS.
