(a) Hazardous Wastes FO20, FO21, FO22, FO23, FO26, and FO27 must not be placed in a landfill
unless the owner or operator operates the landfill in accord with a management plan
for these wastes that is approved by the Regional Administrator pursuant to the standards
set out in this paragraph, and in accord with all other applicable requirements of
this part. The factors to be considered are:
(1) The volume, physical, and chemical characteristics of the wastes, including their
potential to migrate through the soil or to volatilize or escape into the atmosphere;
(2) The attenuative properties of underlying and surrounding soils or other materials;
(3) The mobilizing properties of other materials co-disposed with these wastes; and
(4) The effectiveness of additional treatment, design, or monitoring requirements.
(b) The Regional Administrator may determine that additional design, operating, and monitoring
requirements are necessary for landfills managing hazardous wastes FO20, FO21, FO22,
FO23, FO26, and FO27 in order to reduce the possibility of migration of these wastes
to ground water, surface water, or air so as to protect human health and the environment.
