Any change in, or any new, local fire authority requirements that affect the requirements in this Article shall be reported to the Department by the operator within 30 days after their effective date. Any alternative requirements approved by the local fire authority shall be subject to Department concurrence at the time of issuance or review of the permit.

(d) Tire storage piles containing less than 500 waste tires shall be located no closer than 10 feet from lot lines or buildings; however, tire piles containing less than 500 waste tires may be stored within 10 feet of lot lines or buildings after the operator has obtained approval from the fire code official. Waste tire piles containing less than 500 waste tires shall not exceed 6 feet in height when within 20 feet of any property line, building, or perimeter fencing. Side slopes shall not exceed 60 degrees.
(e) Tire storage piles containing 500 or more waste tires shall be located at least 50 feet from lot lines and buildings, unless the facility is a waste tire facility described in subsections (1) through (4) below.
(1) Where the waste tire facility has obtained approval from the fire code official and the waste tires are stored at an exempt or excluded site defined in 14 CCR section 17225.822, tire storage piles may be located within 50 feet but no closer than 10 feet from lot lines or from buildings.

(g) Waste tire piles shall not be located under bridges, elevated trestles, elevated roadways, or stored in an area where they may be subjected to immersion in water during a 100-year storm unless the owner or operator demonstrates that the waste tire facility or solid waste facility will be designed and operated so as to prevent waste tires from migrating off-site.
(h) At a waste tire facility or solid waste facility storing more than 150,000 cubic feet of waste tires, adjacent individual waste tire piles shall be considered a group, and the aggregate volume of storage piles in a group shall not exceed 150,000 cubic feet. Each group shall be separated from any other group by a distance of at least 75 feet.
