(b)  using the correlation method in Schedule 1, the soil at the disposal site is impermeable solely because its texture is in the impermeable zone and, based on the hydraulic conductivity test or the percolation time test, the soil at the disposal site is permeable or low permeability soil. For the determination of the level of soil permeability, the result obtained by the correlation method must, however, be excluded;
(c)  the soil at the disposal site,
i.  according to its textural class, is structured as described in the following table:
Textural class of the soilRequired soil structure
 TypeGrade
