40 CFR 230.80 - Advanced identification of disposal areas.

prev | next
§ 230.80 Advanced identification of disposal areas.
(a) Consistent with these Guidelines, EPA and the permitting authority, on their own initiative or at the request of any other party and after consultation with any affected State that is not the permitting authority, may identify sites which will be considered as:
(1) Possible future disposal sites, including existing disposal sites and non-sensitive areas; or
(2) Areas generally unsuitable for disposal site specification;
(b) The identification of any area as a possible future disposal site should not be deemed to constitute a permit for the discharge of dredged or fill material within such area or a specification of a disposal site. The identification of areas that generally will not be available for disposal site specification should not be deemed as prohibiting applications for permits to discharge dredged or fill material in such areas. Either type of identification constitutes information to facilitate individual or General permit application and processing.
(c) An appropriate public notice of the proposed identification of such areas shall be issued;
(d) To provide the basis for advanced identification of disposal areas, and areas unsuitable for disposal, EPA and the permitting authority shall consider the likelihood that use of the area in question for dredged or fill material disposal will comply with these Guidelines. To facilitate this analysis, EPA and the permitting authority should review available water resources management data including data available from the public, other Federal and State agencies, and information from approved Coastal Zone Management programs and River Basin Plans;
(e) The permitting authority should maintain a public record of the identified areas and a written statement of the basis for identification.
