The department will also, in response to a request or at its own discretion, hold a public hearing whenever such a hearing might clarify one or more issues concerning a long-term care plan. The department will give public notice of the hearing at least 30 days before it occurs. (Public notice of the hearing may be given at the same time as notice of the opportunity for the public to submit written comments, and the 2 notices may be combined.) The department shall approve, modify or disapprove the plan within 90 days of its receipt. If the department does not approve the plan, it shall provide the owner or operator with a detailed written statement of reasons for the refusal and the owner or operator shall modify the plan or submit a new plan for approval within 30 days after receiving the written statement. The department will approve or modify this plan in writing within 60 days. If the department modifies the plan, this modified plan becomes the approved long-term care plan. The department shall ensure that the approved long-term care plan is consistent with s. NR 665.0117, this section, ss. NR 665.0119 and 665.0120. A copy of the modified plan with a detailed statement of reasons for the modifications shall be mailed to the owner or operator.
NR 665.0118(7) (7)Modification of plan. The long-term care plan and length of the long-term care period may be modified any time prior to the end of the long-term care period in either of the following 2 ways:
NR 665.0118(7)(a) (a) The owner or operator or any member of the public may petition the department to extend or reduce the long-term care period applicable to a hazardous waste management unit or facility based on cause, or alter the requirements of the long-term care period based on cause.
NR 665.0118(7)(a)1. 1. The petition shall include evidence demonstrating either of the following:
NR 665.0118(7)(a)1.a. a. The secure nature of the hazardous waste management unit or facility makes the long-term care requirements unnecessary or supports reduction of the long-term care period specified in the current long-term care plan (e.g., leachate or groundwater monitoring results, characteristics of the wastes, application of advanced technology or alternative disposal, treatment or re-use techniques indicate that the facility is secure).
NR 665.0118(7)(a)1.b. b. The requested extension in the long-term care period or alteration of long-term care requirements is necessary to prevent threats to human health and the environment (e.g., leachate or groundwater monitoring results indicate a potential for migration of hazardous wastes at levels which may be harmful to human health and the environment).
NR 665.0118(7)(a)2. 2. The department will consider these petitions only when they present new and relevant information not previously considered by the department. Whenever the department is considering a petition, it will provide the owner or operator and the public, through a newspaper notice, the opportunity to submit written comments within 30 days of the date of the notice. The department will also, in response to a request or at its own discretion, hold a public hearing whenever a hearing might clarify one or more issues concerning the long-term care plan. The department will give the public notice of the hearing at least 30 days before it occurs. (Public notice of the hearing may be given at the same time as notice of the opportunity for written public comments, and the 2 notices may be combined.) After considering the comments, the department will issue a final determination, based upon the criteria set forth in this paragraph.
NR 665.0118(7)(a)3. 3. If the department denies the petition, it will send the petitioner a brief written response giving a reason for the denial.
NR 665.0118(7)(b) (b) The department may tentatively decide to modify the long-term care plan if it deems it necessary to prevent threats to human health and the environment. The department may propose to extend or reduce the long-term care period applicable to a hazardous waste management unit or facility based on cause or alter the requirements of the long-term care period based on cause.
NR 665.0118(7)(b)1. 1. The department will provide the owner or operator and the affected public, through a newspaper notice, the opportunity to submit written comments within 30 days of the date of the notice and the opportunity for a public hearing as in par. (a) 2. After considering the comments, the department will issue a final determination.
NR 665.0118(7)(b)2. 2. The department will base its final determination upon the same criteria as required for petitions under par. (a) 1. A modification of the long-term care plan may include, where appropriate, the temporary suspension rather than permanent deletion of one or more long-term care requirements. At the end of the specified period of suspension, the department would then determine whether the requirements should be permanently discontinued or reinstated to prevent threats to human health and the environment.
