Table 1133 Environmental Performance Guidelines

Prevention of adverse effects on air quality considering

1. Volume and physical and chemical characteristics of facility waste, including potential for volatilization and wind dispersal

2. Existing quality of the air, including other sources of contamination and their cumulative impact on the air

3. Potential for health risks caused by human exposure to waste constituents

4. Potential damage to wildlife, crops, vegetation, and physical structures caused by exposure to waste constituents

5. Persistence and permanence of the potential adverse effects

Prevention of adverse effects on surface water quality considering

1. Volume and physical and chemical characteristics of facility waste

2. Hydrogeological characteristics of the facility and surrounding land, including topography of the area around the facility

3. Quantity, quality, and directions of groundwater flow

4. Patterns of rainfall in the region

5. Proximity of facility to surface waters

6. Uses of nearby surface waters and any water quality standards established for those surface waters

7. Existing quality of surface water, including other sources of contamination and their cumulative impact on surface water

8. Potential for health risks caused by human exposure to waste constituents

9. Potential damage to wildlife, crops, vegetation, and physical structures caused by exposure to waste constituents 10. Persistence and permanence of the potential adverse effects

Prevention of adverse effects on groundwater quality considering

1. Volume and physical and chemical characteristics of the waste in the facility, including its potential for migration through soil or through synthetic liner materials

2. Geologic characteristics of the facility and surrounding land

3. Patterns of land use in the region

4. Potential for migration of waste constituents into subsurface physical structures

5. Potential for migration of waste constituents into the root zone of food-chain crops and other vegetation

6. Potential for health risks through human exposure to waste constituents

7. Potential damage to wildlife, crops, vegetation, and physical structures through exposure to waste constituents

8. Persistence and permanence of potential adverse effects
