285.63(10) (10)Requirements for medical waste incinerators.
285.63(10)(a)(a) In this subsection, "medical waste incinerator" has the meaning given in s. 287.07 (7) (c) 1. cr.
285.63(10)(b) (b) In addition to the requirements under subs. (1) to (3), the department may approve an application submitted after May 14, 1992, for a permit required or allowed under s. 285.60 for the construction of a medical waste incinerator or for the modification of a medical waste incinerator that expands the capacity of the medical waste incinerator only if it finds that the new or modified medical waste incinerator will be needed and that the site of the medical waste incinerator is appropriate.
285.63(10)(c) (c) The department shall consider all of the following in evaluating the need for the proposed medical waste incinerator:
285.63(10)(c)1. 1. An approximate service area for the proposed medical waste incinerator that encompasses all sources of waste that could potentially be burned in the medical waste incinerator. The department shall delineate the service area based on the economics of waste collection, transportation and treatment.
285.63(10)(c)2. 2. The quantity of waste that could potentially be burned in the proposed medical waste incinerator and that is generated within the anticipated service area.
285.63(10)(c)3. 3. The remaining capacity or design capacity of other solid waste facilities, if those facilities are located within the anticipated service area of the proposed medical waste incinerator and are currently providing or are expected to provide solid waste management for any sources of solid waste that could potentially be burned in the medical waste incinerator.
285.63(10)(c)4. 4. The quantity of waste having the potential to be burned in the medical waste incinerator that may be managed in an effective recycling program created under s. 287.11.
285.63(10)(c)5. 5. The potential for reducing the quantity of waste having the potential to be burned in the medical waste incinerator by reducing the amount of waste that is generated within the anticipated service area and the potential for using alternative technologies for disposing of the waste.
285.63(10)(d) (d) The department may not determine that the site of a proposed medical waste incinerator is appropriate if the medical waste incinerator or the transportation of solid waste to the medical waste incinerator will have an adverse effect that is both substantial and unreasonable on any of the following:
285.63(10)(d)1. 1. Existing recreational land uses.
285.63(10)(d)2. 2. Land or surface water that has any of the characteristics under s. 23.27 (2).

285.63(10)(d)6. 6. Projected land uses identified in any municipal master plan or official map that is in effect at least 15 months prior to the submission to the department of the permit application, if the land uses are expected to occur during the site life of the medical waste incinerator and any expansions of the medical waste incinerator.
285.63(10)(e) (e) The department shall promulgate rules for making the findings under par. (b).
285.63(11) (11)Modeling. The department is not required to use air dispersion modeling as a basis for making its findings under sub. (1) for a minor source unless modeling is specifically provided for under the federal clean air act, rules promulgated under this chapter, or a federal or state agreement.
285.64 285.64 Criteria for operation permits for stationary sources.

285.64(2)(a)(a) The department may not revoke an operation permit for an existing source for one year after the issuance of that permit based upon failure of the existing source at the time of permit issuance to comply with this chapter and s. 299.15 and rules promulgated under this chapter and s. 299.15.
285.64(2)(b) (b) Notwithstanding par. (a), the department may take any other action necessary to enforce an operation permit and this chapter and s. 299.15 and rules promulgated under this chapter and s. 299.15 which apply to the existing source after issuance of an operation permit under this section.

285.66(2)(c)2. 2. The operation permit is not a registration permit or a general permit.
285.66(3) (3)Renewal.
