§ 2591. Waste Discharge Requirements.
(a) The regional board shall adopt waste discharge requirements that implement the applicable provisions of this chapter.
(b) The regional board shall revise waste discharge requirements as necessary to implement the provisions of this chapter.
(c) For waste management units subject to this chapter, classifications and waste discharge requirements for existing units shall be fully reviewed in accordance with schedules established by regional boards. In no instance shall such review be beyond five years of the effective date of this section. The waste discharge requirements shall be revised to incorporate reclassification and retrofitting requirements as provided in Subsections 2510(e) and 2540(b) of this chapter, as well as the revised monitoring program developed under Subsection 2590(b)(1) of this article. The regional board shall specify in waste discharge requirements the schedule for retrofitting of existing facilities. All retrofitting shall be complete within five years from the issuance of the revised waste discharge requirements.
(d) Waste discharge requirements for new waste management units or for expansion of existing units shall not be effective until the regional board is notified that all local agencies with jurisdiction to regulate land use, solid waste disposal, air pollution, and to protect public health have approved use of the site for discharges of waste to land.
(e) Appropriate classifications and waste discharge requirements for all waste management units in a single facility may be included in a single set of waste discharge requirements applicable to the facility as a whole and to each within the facility. Requirements relating to precipitation and drainage control systems for two or more adjacent waste management units may be consolidated provided that consolidated requirements reflect standards for the highest level of containment applicable to any waste management unit involved.
(f) The discharger shall be required to maintain legible records of the volume and type of each waste discharged at each waste management unit and the manner and location of discharge. Such records shall be on forms approved by the State Board and shall be maintained at the waste management facility until the beginning of the post-closure maintenance period. These records shall be available for review by representatives of the State Board and regional boards at any time during normal business hours. At the beginning of the post-closure maintenance period, copies of these records shall be sent to the regional board.
