Location Restrictions


Except as otherwise provided in OAR 340 division 95, any person who designs, constructs, maintains, or operates any non-municipal land disposal site must do so in conformance with the location requirements of this rule.


Endangered Species. No person shall establish, expand or modify a non-municipal land disposal site in a manner that will cause or contribute to the actual or attempted:


Harassing, harming, pursuing, hunting, wounding, killing, trapping, capturing or collecting of any endangered or threatened species of plants, fish, or wildlife;


Direct or indirect alteration of critical habitat which appreciably diminishes the likelihood of the survival and recovery of threatened or endangered species using that habitat.


Floodplains. No person shall establish, expand or modify a non-municipal land disposal site in a floodplain in a manner that will allow the facility to restrict the flow of the base flood, reduce the temporary water storage capacity of the floodplain, or result in washout of solid waste so as to pose a hazard to human life, wildlife or land or water resources.


Sensitive Hydrogeological Environments. No person shall establish or expand a non-municipal land disposal site in a gravel pit excavated into or above a water table aquifer or other sole source aquifer, or in a wellhead protection area, where the Department has determined that:


Groundwater must be protected from pollution because it has existing or potential beneficial uses (OAR 340-040-0020 (General Policies)); and


Existing natural protection is insufficient or inadequate to minimize the risk of polluting groundwater.
