These operations shall be inspected by the EA at least once every three (3) months to verify compliance with minimum standards unless the EA approves, with Department concurrence, a reduced inspection frequency. The EA may approve a reduced inspection frequency only if it will not pose an additional risk to public health and safety or the environment but in no case shall the frequency be less than once per calendar year. [Note: See section 18083(a)(3) for additional EA and Department requirements regarding the approval or denial of requests for reducing the frequency of inspections.] To the greatest extent possible, all inspections shall be unannounced and shall be conducted at irregular intervals. The operator shall specify the operation's boundary area in the operating record.
(a) CDI debris stored for more than 15 days that has not been processed and sorted for resale or reuse shall be deemed to have been unlawfully disposed and therefore subject to enforcement action, including the use of a Notice and Order as provided in section 18304.
(b) CDI debris that has been processed and sorted for resale or reuse, but remains stored on site for more than one year, shall be deemed to have been unlawfully disposed, and therefore subject to enforcement action including the use of a Notice and Order as provided in section 18304.
(c) The maximum amount of material that may be stored on site, including unprocessed material, material that is being processed, and material that has been processed, is that amount which is the product of 30 days multiplied by the maximum amount of incoming material permitted per day.
(d) Storage time limits may be extended in accordance with sections 17384(a) (Land Use Entitlement), 17384(b) (Storage Plan), and 17384(c) (Financial Assurances) of this Article.
(e) Residual material shall be removed from the site within 48 hours or at analternate frequency approved by the EA.
(f) Each operator of a Small Volume CDI Processing Operation shall file with the EA, together with its application for an EA Notification, a Small Volume CDI Processing Operation Plan (as more fully described in Article 3.2, section 17386 of this Article). The information contained in the Plan shall be reviewed by the EA to determine whether it is complete and correct as defined in CCR, Title 14, Chapter 5, Article 3.0, section 18101.
(g) Where the public may have access to them, the debris piles and other piles of materials on site must be stable and otherwise configured so as to protect the public health and safety.
(h) C&D Mulch that is not compostable material produced at a small volume CDI processing operation must meet all requirements of a small volume C&D wood debris chipping and grinding operation, including the storage limits.
(i) Each operator shall determine the weight of all material received at the operation for handling and shall maintain records of the weight of materials in accord with State Minimum Standards. Weight shall be determined by the use of scales which may be located at the operation or off-site.
(j) Each operator shall maintain records in accordance with Title 14, California Code of Regulations, Division 7, Chapter 9, Article 9.25, Section 18815.1 et seq. The records shall be available for inspections as authorized by that article during normal business hours and retained in the operating record near the site or in an alternative location approved by the Local Enforcement Agency.
