This reporting requirement also applies to expansion of an existing waste management unit or development of new units at an existing site. Dischargers shall submit any applicable information required by this article to the regional board upon request. Dischargers shall be required to provide information on waste characteristics, geologic and climatologic characteristics of the unit and the surrounding region, installed features, operation plans for waste containment, precipitation and drainage controls, and closure and post-closure maintenance plans as set forth in Sections 2594 through 2597 of this article.
(1) The discharger may submit a copy of the application for a hazardous waste facility permit, including the closure and post-closure maintenance plan, under Sections 66264.112 (for fully-permitted Units) or 66265.112 (for interim status Units) of Title 22 of this code as a report of waste discharge, together with the applicable filing fee, provided that such application includes the information required in this article.

(3) [Reserved.]
(4) The discharger shall notify the regional board of changes in information submitted under this chapter, including any material change in the types, quantities, or concentrations of wastes discharged; site operations and features; or proposed closure procedures, including changes in cost estimates. The discharger shall notify the regional board a reasonable time before the changes are made or become effective. No changes shall be made without regional board approval following authorization for closure pursuant to the site closure notice required by subsection (c)(5) of this section.
(b) Deadlines for Reporting.
(1) Dischargers who own or operate existing waste management units subject to this chapter for which waste discharge requirements were issued before the effective date of this chapter shall, within six months of the effective date of this section, submit a technical report to the regional board describing the measures necessary to bring their monitoring programs into compliance with Article 5 of this chapter, including a schedule for achieving compliance. The regional board shall modify waste discharge requirements accordingly.
(2) Dischargers who own or operate existing waste management units subject to this chapter for which waste discharge requirements were issued before the effective date of this chapter shall submit a report of waste discharge which complies with subsection (a) of this section to the regional board, together with the appropriate filing fee, on request. Any applicable information required by Sections 2594 through 2597 of this article which has been submitted to the regional board, or another state agency, may be incorporated by reference, provided that the report shall not be considered complete until referenced information is received or obtained by the regional board.
(3) Dischargers who own or operate existing waste management units subject to this chapter which have not been classified under previous regulations and for which the discharger has not submitted a report of waste discharge before the effective date of this chapter, shall submit a report of waste discharge to the appropriate regional board within 60 days of the effective date of this chapter as required by Subsection 2510(d) of this chapter. The report shall be in accordance with subsection (a) of this section.
(c) Notification:
(1) The discharger shall notify the regional board in writing of any proposed change of ownership or responsibility for construction, operation, closure, or post-closure maintenance of a waste management unit subject to this chapter. This notification shall be given prior to the effective date of the change and shall include a statement by the new discharger that construction, operation, closure, and post-closure maintenance will be in compliance with any existing waste discharge requirements and any revisions thereof. The regional board shall amend the existing waste discharge requirements to name the new discharger.
(2) The regional board shall be notified immediately of any slope failure occurring in a waste management unit subject to this chapter. Any failure which threatens the integrity of containment features or the waste management unit(s) subject to this chapter shall be promptly corrected after approval of the method and schedule by the regional board.
(3) The regional board shall be notified within seven days if fluid is detected in a previously dry leachate collection and removal system or unsaturated zone monitoring system, or if a progressive increase is detected in the volume of fluid in a leachate collection and removal system.
(4) The discharger shall comply with the notification requirements in Article 5 of this chapter.
(5) The owner or operator of a waste management unit shall notify the regional board of units to be closed at least 180 days prior to beginning any partial or final closure activities, provided that the regional board may specify a shorter interval for particular units in the waste discharge requirements for such units. The notice shall include a statement that all closure activities will conform to the most recently approved closure plan and that the plan provides for site closure in compliance with all applicable federal and state regulations.
(6) The owner or operator of a waste management unit shall notify the regional board within 30 days after the completion of any partial or final closure activities. The discharger shall certify under penalty of perjury that all closure activities were performed in accordance with the most recently approved closure plan and in accordance with all applicable regulations. The discharger shall certify that closed waste management units shall be maintained in accordance with an approved post-closure maintenance plan unless post-closure maintenance has been waived pursuant to subsection (a)(3) of this section.
(d) Any report submitted under this section or any amendment or revision thereto which might affect containment features or monitoring systems shall be approved by a registered civil engineer or a certified engineering geologist.
