Title Solid Waste Compliance Program Inspection Manual
Document ID LPR-SW-02-2010
Summary The Virginia DEQ Solid Waste Compliance Program conducts periodic inspections of waste management facilities subject to the Virginia Waste Management Act and its associated waste regulations. This manual provides procedural guidance on how to conduct a legally defensible inspection, and is designed to promote uniformity and consistency among DEQ Regional Offices. Procedures include pre-inspection preparation, on-site inspection protocols, and post-inspection procedures for report preparation and responding to observations of compliance and non-compliance. Suspected noncompliance is addressed using a classification system of severity levels to identify the significance of various noncompliance observations so a prioritized compliance and enforcement response may be initiated to resolve the matter.
