Proposed Part 208, Landfill Gas Collection and Control Systems for Certain Municipal Solid Waste Landfills

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is revising 6 NYCRR Part 208 "Landfill Gas Collection and Control Systems for Certain Municipal solid Waste Landfills," and attendant revisions to Part 200 "General Provisions," to incorporate the new federal Emission Guideline (EG) for MSW Landfills codified under 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart Cf. The new federal EG is designed to reduce emissions of landfill gas containing non-methane organic compounds and methane by lowering the emission threshold at which a landfill must install and operate a landfill gas collection and control system. Once this proposal is adopted, the Department is required to revise its State Plan to reflect the new EG and submit the State Plan to EPA for review and approval.
