SCPH inspects several closed and historic solid waste landfills. These inspections are conducted quarterly for a period of 30 years from the date the landfill is closed. Any violations are noted during the inspections and the responsible party is notified to correct the violations within a reasonable time frame. If the violations are not corrected, further enforcement action is taken to protect the environment and public health.
The Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) for closed solid waste landfills can be found here: http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/3745-27 and http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/3745-37.
