Rulemaking Public Hearings
Solid and Hazardous Waste
SHWD proposed Solid Waste Rule Chapter 18 will regulate disposal of coal combustion residuals in landfills and surface impoundments at active electric utilities or independent power producers. These requirements have been finalized under the solid waste provisions, Subtitle D, of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, specifically found in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Part 257, Subpart D. These regulations address location restrictions, design criteria, operating criteria, groundwater monitoring and corrective action, closure and post-closure care, recordkeeping, notification, and posting of information to the internet. Incorporating these standards by reference ensures that the Solid Waste Rule Chapter 18 meets the federal minimum criteria. Currently, in addition to the federal regulations, multiple divisions within the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality regulate the disposal of coal combustion residuals. This program will consolidate all regulations for the disposal of coal combustion residuals under the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Solid and Hazardous Waste Division.
The Water Quality Division proposes to revise Water Quality Rules Chapter 3, Regulations for Permit to Construct, Install or Modify Public Water Supplies, Wastewater Facilities, Disposal Systems, Biosolids Management Facilities, Treated Wastewater Reuse Systems and Other Facilities Capable of Causing or Contributing to Pollution. The proposed revisions to Chapter 3 add an exclusion for facilities that accept coal combustion residuals, remove passages that are restatements of the Wyoming Statutes, and reorganize passages and sections within the chapter for clarity.
Water Quality Division
The Water Quality Division proposes the adoption of Chapter 29, Geologic Sequestration Special Revenue Account Requirements, which identifies fee and timing requirements for Underground Injection Control Class VI well owners, operators, and permittees that are required to contribute to the Special Revenue Account created by Wyoming Statute § 35-11-318.
