Q-2, r. 19 - Regulation respecting the landfilling and incineration of residual materials

Full text
104. Subject to the conditions set out in the second paragraph, sections 13 to 16, 19, 28 to 30 and 34 to 36 apply, with the necessary modifications, to the siting of construction or demolition waste landfills.
The siting is also subject to the following conditions:
(1)  the minimum distance between the disposal areas and any watercourse or body of water must be 150 m;
(2)  the bottom of the disposal areas must be at least 1 m above the groundwater level. The lowering of the groundwater level by pumping, draining or otherwise is prohibited. That prohibition does not apply to landfills in operation on 19 January 2006 if their siting complies with the provisions of this Regulation that apply to containment and the collection of leachate in engineered landfills. In such a case, the leachate collection system must be designed and installed so that the hydraulic head at the base of the disposal areas cannot reach the level of the residual materials deposited in the disposal areas.
The minimum distances prescribed by the second paragraph are measured from the disposal areas in the pit or quarry.
O.C. 451-2005, s. 104.
