Revisions to the Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (MSWLFs) To Address Advances in Liquids Management (Draft)
Dec. 27, 2018
The EPA is considering whether to propose revisions to the criteria for MSWLFs to support advances in effective liquids management. EPA is seeking information relating to: Removing the prohibition on the addition of bulk liquids to MSWLFs; defining a particular class of MSWLF units (i.e., bioreactor landfill units) to operate with increased moisture content; and establishing revised MSWLF criteria to address additional technical considerations associated with liquids management, including waste stability, subsurface reactions, and other important safety and operational issues.
