Utah deletes a location standard for new solid waste landfills

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has deleted one of the siting criteria for a new solid waste landfill. Now gone from the state solid waste regulations is a landfill location requirement that prohibited a new solid waste landfill from being located within "farmland classified or evaluated as 'prime,' 'unique,' or of 'statewide importance' by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service under the Prime Farmland Protection Act.

The DEQ based this change on feedback from stakeholders that the requirement is overly broad and likely outside DEQ's regulatory purview since such farmland designations are overseen by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture under the authority of the Farmland Protection Policy Act (FPPA). The DEQ stated that removing this particular location requirement does not lessen environmental or public health protection because other siting standards will continue to apply to siting new solid waste landfills.

The revised regulation went into effect in Utah as of August 1, 2017.
