Air Resources Board or air pollution control districts and air quality management
(c) The regulations adopted by the board pursuant to subdivision (a) shall establish
monitoring and control standards, based on the potential of the waste to generate

disposal sites or disposal facilities to report monitoring data and to perform, or
cause to be performed, site inventories and evaluations of disposal sites or disposal
facilities for the subsurface migration of landfill gas.
