VACATED -Negotiated Rule Making - Air Quality/(MSW)Municipal Solid Waste Landfills

This negotiated rulemaking has been vacated.  The meeting set for June 22, 2017 has been cancelled.

On May 23, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a 90 day administrative stay for the August 2016 New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Emissions Guidelines (EG) for municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills.  The 90 day stay began upon publication of EPA’s May 31, 2017 notice in the Federal Register.  During the stay, EPA will reconsider certain aspects of the NSPS and EG for existing MSW landfills. As part of the reconsideration process, EPA expects to prepare a proposed rule, which will allow for public comment.  Additional information on the stay and reconsideration is available at https://www.epa.gov/stationary-sources-air-pollution/municipal-solid-waste-landfills-new-source-performance-standards.

 

Based on the stay and the likelihood of updated requirements, DEQ is vacating the current rulemaking effort.  This is consistent with the public comments received on the negotiated rule draft.  A common theme in the comments received was that DEQ should delay the rulemaking and allow EPA time to address inconsistencies in the rules promulgated in August 2016.  After EPA completes its reconsideration, DEQ will assess resuming rulemaking for MSW landfills.
