REGULATORY PETITION REGISTRY & DOCUMENT ACCESS
LCB File No. R-179-05
Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 444.688.
Description of Petition: This regulation addresses "cover requirements" of compacted solid waste at certain landfills in Nevada. The regulation amends NAC 444.688. The requested change reverse an existing requirement that allows certain landfills in Nevada to operate for up to six days without applying cover soil to exposed waste.
This regulation restores conformance with the federal landfill criteria while retaining flexibility for landfills to operate continuously. This regulation allows landfills to avoid the requirement of a daily cover if they have equipment continuously "working the face" of the landfill.
