Title Surface Water Impacts at Solid Waste Landfills
Document ID LPR-SW-01-2008
Summary This guidance defines the goals for addressing unpermitted discharges to surface water caused by releases from solid waste landfills. Most commonly, landfill-derived surface water impact mitigation will proceed as part of site wide groundwater corrective action under the oversight of the Department’s Waste Program. When such groundwater remedial actions would also require a Virginia Pollution Discharge Elimination System (VPDES) permit for a surface water discharge, the permit should be issued with conditions which satisfy the applicable requirements of both the Water and Waste Programs. This guidance establishes that VPDES permits should not be issued to discharges of contaminated groundwater in cases where the discharge is not related to some form of active remediation/treatment, otherwise part of groundwater corrective action.
