Title: ●Stay of Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills and Emission Guidelines and Compliance Times for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills 
Abstract:

The EPA finalized the Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills on August 29, 2016 (81 FR 59332) and its companion rule, Emission Guidelines and Compliance Times for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills, also finalized on August 29, 2016 (81 FR 59276). The EPA received a petition in response to the final rules from industry representatives. The petition raised various objections to the rules, including Tier 4 surface emission monitoring, annual liquids reporting, corrective action timeline procedures, overlapping applicability with other rules, definition of cover penetration and design plan approval. In this action, the EPA intends to issue a 90-day stay of both the new source performance standards (NSPS) and emission guidelines (EG) because the issues listed above are integral to both rules. Sources will not need to comply with these requirements while the stay is in effect.
