§ 17385. Pre-Existing Permits.
(a) If an activity subject to this Article is existing under a Registration Permit or Full Permit on the effective date of this Article, that activity may continue to operate until the operator applies for and obtains the appropriate permit or satisfies the requirements for notification, as applicable, as set forth in this Article. As set forth in section 17385(d), the EA shall notify the owner or operator what permit is required under this Article. The operator shall obtain the required permit or satisfy the requirements for notification in the same manner and within the same time frames as set forth in subsection 17385(b). For the purposes of this section, “existing” includes activities that are operating and activities that have not commenced operation but have received all local government land use approvals required under applicable law and have commenced physical development of the site or improvements on the site for purposes of the activity.
(b) If an activity subject to this Article is existing and does not have a Registration Permit or Full Permit on the effective date of this Article, that activity may continue to operate in substantially the same manner until the EA determines what permit or other documentation is required for the activity under this Article and notifies the owner or operator in writing of its determination. The EA shall make that determination for all facilities and operations within its jurisdiction no sooner than 30 days and no later than 90 days from the effective date of this Article. If the EA determines that a Full Permit is required, the operator shall apply for and obtain that permit within 180 days from the date the owner or operator receives the EA's written determination, whichever first occurs. If the EA determines that a Registration Permit is required, the operator shall apply for and obtain that permit within 60 days from the date the owner or operator receives the EA's written determination, whichever first occurs. If the EA determines that EA notification under CCR, Title 14, Division 7, Chapter 5.0, Article 3.0, commencing at section 18100, is required, the operator shall comply with the EA notification requirements within 30 days from the date the owner or operator receives the EA's written determination, whichever first occurs. If an activity subject to this Article fails to obtain the required permit or submit documentation for EA notification within the specified time, the EA shall take appropriate enforcement action.
(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article, until that date which is two (2) years from the effective date of this Article (the “Temporary Permit Expiration Date”) or any extension of such Temporary Permit Expiration Date, large volume CDI debris processing facilities which are existing on the effective date of this Article may elect to obtain and operate under a temporary Registration Permit pursuant to subsection (b) above, rather than a Full Permit. Operators of facilities so electing shall obtain temporary Registration Permits in the manner as set forth in subsection (b) above. Operators of large volume CDI debris processing facilities that receive temporary Registration Permits under this subsection (c) shall apply for a Full Permit no later than one (1) year from the date the owner or operator of the facility receives notification from the EA that a Full Permit is required under this Article, whichever first occurs, as provided in subsection (b) above, and shall obtain a Full Permit no later than the Temporary Permit Expiration Date. Notwithstanding, the Temporary Permit Expiration Date may be extended by one or more periods not exceeding a total of three (3) years by the EA (the last such extension is the “Extended Temporary Permit Expiration Date”) in the event that the EA finds that an operator, for reasons beyond its control, has been unable to obtain a Full Permit despite having exercised good faith and due diligence in attempting to obtain such a permit. Registration Permits obtained under this subsection (c) are temporary and shall expire no later than the Temporary Permit Expiration Date or the Extended Temporary Permit Expiration Date, whichever is applicable. The Full Permit that the operator obtains shall supercede, and cause the expiration of, the facility's temporary Registration Permit obtained under this subsection (c). If any large volume CDI debris processing facility fails to obtain the required Full Permit within the specified time, the EA shall take appropriate enforcement action.
(d) Waste handling activities which are existing on the effective date of this Article and which handle exclusively construction and demolition wastes, as defined in Section 17225.15 of Article 4 of this Chapter, that do not qualify as C&D debris under this Article shall obtain the appropriate permit as a transfer/processing operation or facility as provided in Articles 6.0 through 6.4, inclusive, of this Chapter. Notwithstanding, such activities shall obtain the necessary permits in the same manner and within the same time frames as if they were operations or facilities subject to this Article, as specified in this Section 17385, such that limited volume transfer operations (defined at section 17403.3) shall comply with EA notification requirements within 30 days from the date the owner or operator receives the written determination from the EA, whichever first occurs, medium volume transfer/processing facilities (defined at section 17403.6) shall obtain a Registration Permit within 60 days from the date the owner or operator receives the written determination from the EA, whichever first occurs, and large volume transfer/processing facilities (defined at 17403.7) shall obtain a Full Permit within 180 days from the date the owner or operator receives the written determination from the EA, whichever first occurs. Large volume transfer/processing facilities which handle exclusively construction and demolition wastes may elect to obtain and operate under a temporary Registration Permit in the same manner, under the same procedures and subject to the same limitations as a large volume CDI debris processing facility under subsection 17385(c). If an activity subject to this subsection fails to obtain the required permit or submit documentation within the specified time, the EA shall take appropriate enforcement action.
