(b) The SIR shall be prepared by a California licensed civil engineer or licensed engineering geologist.
(c) The SIR shall describe the potential impacts to the landfill including the expected timing of the impacts. The analysis shall include, but not be limited to, changes to the following:
(1) Site development;
(2) Waste types/volumes;
(3) Daily and intermediate cover and beneficial use:
(A) For intermediate cover the analysis shall also include:
1. A description and/or map of the area(s) that have or will have intermediate cover.
2. The length of time that the intermediate cover has been used and expected time that it will be used for each defined area.
3. A description of how the intermediate cover will be maintained to continue to meet the control criteria of Section 20700(a).
4. Information on all instantaneous surface readings for methane of 500 ppmv or greater in the area(s) of intermediate cover that has or will be in place for more than 12 months.
i. This information shall be as reflected in the most recent annual report filed pursuant to 17 CCR Section 95470(b)(3).
ii. The location of each such exceedance shall be identified consistent with the monitoring requirements of 17 CCR Section 95469(a)(1)(A).

(5) Waste handling methods;
(6) Gas control and monitoring systems;
(7) Gas generation;
(8) Operation and closure design (individual cells and overall site geometry);
(9) Final grading plan;
(10) Site life estimate;
(11) Ancillary facilities;
(12) Cost estimates for closure and postclosure; and
(13) Financial assurance mechanisms for closure, postclosure, and non-water corrective action requirements.
(d) The SIR shall be submitted to CalRecycle no later than one year (365 days) from the effective date of this regulation.
(e) Within 30 days of receipt of a SIR, CalRecycle shall make a determination as to the completeness of the SIR based on the requirements of Subdivisions (b) and (c). If a SIR is determined to be incomplete, CalRecycle shall provide to the operator, in writing, the reasons for the determination.
(f) For a SIR determined to be incomplete, the operator shall submit a revised SIR addressing any enumerated deficiencies within 30 days of receipt of notice from CalRecycle of an incomplete SIR.
(g) Within 60 days of a determination of completeness, CalRecycle shall submit its findings to the EA regarding amendments, if any, to the Joint Technical Document as a result of the SIR.
(1) If amendments are required, the EA shall direct the operator to submit an updated Joint Technical Document including updated closure and postclosure maintenance plans that includes the information from the SIR.
(2) The EA shall notify the operator within 30 days of receipt of CalRecycle's findings.
(h) Within 120 days of being directed by the EA, pursuant to Subdivision (g), the operator shall submit to the EA an updated Joint Technical Document including updated closure and postclosure maintenance plans that includes the information from the SIR.
