Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Solid waste management and enforcement. Prohibits the issuance of permits for the siting of new municipal solid waste landfills in wetlands. The prohibition does not apply to an expansion into the Great Dismal Swamp sought by the Southeastern Public Service Authority. Routine groundwater monitoring at landfills in wetland areas or within their proximity is doubled unless the Department of Environmental Quality Director finds that less frequent monitoring is necessary. The Virginia Waste Management Board is authorized to issue administrative orders that may include monetary penalties, and may require the violator to take corrective action and cease activities in cases where solid waste management laws, regulations, permits or orders are not being complied with. There is also a technical amendment.
