Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Siting of landfills.  Reduces from five miles to three miles the distance that a landfill can be sited from a surface water or a groundwater supply intake or reservoir. However, a landfill can be constructed as close as one mile from any existing surface or groundwater supply if the landfill meets certain conditions. The bill also increases the acreage threshold for allowing a landfill to be constructed or expanded in a nontidal wetland. Under existing law, permits may be issued for the construction or expansion of a landfill that impacts less than 1.25 acres of nontidal wetlands. This bill would allow the issuance of a permit for a landfill that would impact less than two acres. The bill authorizes the Director of the Department of Environmental Quality to issue a permit for an expansion of a landfill located in a wetland only under certain specific conditions, such as the proposed site has to be at least 100 feet from any surface water body and one mile from any tidal wetland and that there is a minimum two-to-one wetlands mitigation ratio.
