Recordkeeping Requirements (40 CFR 257.105)
Under the CCR Rule, owners and operators of CCR landfills and surface impoundments are required to document and maintain files in a written operating record at their facilities. Written plans, assessments, notifications, certifications, demonstrations, reports, and other specified documents must be completed and placed in the written operating record by the deadline identified in the rule. Documentation must also be retained for at least five years and, if requested, documentation must be submitted to the state and/or tribal authority if the information is not publicly available via the website.
Publicly Accessible Internet Site Requirements (40 CFR 257.107)
In addition to written operating records, owners and operators of CCR landfills and surface impoundments are required to maintain a publicly accessible website that contains pertinent information found in the operating record. With a few exceptions, the information must be posted on the website within 30 days after placing it in the operating record and kept on the website for at least five years.
Notification Requirements (40 CFR 257.106)
Moreover, written notification must be sent to the appropriate state and/or tribal authority when a document is placed in the operating record and on the publicly accessible website. With a few exceptions, notification must be given within 30 days after placing documents in the operating record or on the website.
