FOR PROPOSED REVISIONS TO THE SOLID WASTE PROGRAM
DIVISION 335-13, ADEM ADMINISTRATIVE CODE
PUBLIC NOTICE – 422

Notice is hereby given that a hearing before the Department of Environmental Management of the State of Alabama will be held on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at 10:30 AM in the Main Hearing Room of the ADEM - Central Office location at 1400 Coliseum Boulevard in Montgomery, to consider proposed revisions and additions to Division 335‑13 of the ADEM Administrative Code (Solid Waste Program).

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management proposes to amend the ADEM administrative code. Revisions to the Division 13 Regulations are being proposed to adopt new rules published by EPA, to incorporate a statutory change to the Code of Alabama, to incorporate changes to ensure consistency with State and Federal Statutes, to make typographical and grammatical corrections, adopt certain State specific requirements, to provide clarification of State requirements for the management of solid waste, and adopt standards for the disposal of coal combustion residuals (CCR) in landfills and surface impoundments as promulgated by EPA.

Additionally, the definition of “municipal solid waste landfill unit” is proposed to be amended in accordance with EPA’s Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule (81 FR 85805, November 28, 2016).

Copies of the proposed rules are available at a cost of 30 cents per page at each of the locations listed below.  The summary of reasons supporting the revisions are available free of charge.  Copies of the proposed rules and summary of reasons can also be found on the internet at http://adem.alabama.gov/newsEvents/pubHearings.cnt at no cost.
