Full text
105. Sections 37 to 40.1, 43 to 49, 52 to 55, 57 to 60, 63 to 67 and 69 to 79 apply to the operation of construction or demolition waste landfills, with the necessary modifications and in particular as follows: the maximum distance authorized under subparagraph 2 of the third paragraph of section 65 for the installation of groundwater quality monitoring wells must not exceed the perimeter of the landfills.
The operation of the landfills is also subject to the following conditions:
(1)  subject to subparagraph 2, construction or demolition waste deposited in the landfills must, at least once a month during the operation period, be graded and covered with a layer of soil or material that
— consists of less than 20% by weight of particles 0.08 mm or finer in diameter;
— has a constant minimum hydraulic conductivity of 1 x 10-4 cm/s;
— does not contain material that is not accepted in such a landfill;
— accomplishes the purposes referred to in the second paragraph of section 41;
(2)  bituminous coated material containing asbestos must be covered with other materials on being unloaded in a disposal area. The words “containing asbestos” have the same meaning as in the fourth paragraph of section 41;
(3)  (subparagraph revoked).
The soil used to cover construction or demolition waste may also contain contaminants in a concentration equal to or lower than the limit values set out in Schedule I to the Land Protection and Rehabilitation Regulation (chapter Q-2, r. 37). Those limit values do not apply to contaminants that do not originate from human activity.
The operator must periodically verify, at the frequency specified in the authorization obtained pursuant to section 22 or 31.5 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2), whether the soils or other materials used to cover the residual materials meet the requirements of subparagraph 1 of the second paragraph of this section. For that purpose, the operator must have representative samples of the soils or materials measured and analyzed and the results of the measurements and analyses must appear in the annual report prepared pursuant to section 52.
