In August 1988, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed Solid Waste Disposal Facilities Criteria (40 CFR Part 258) for municipal solid waste landfills. The background document is the basis for the development of a portion of the Subtitle D criteria. The document presents information on case studies dealing with ground-water and surface-water contamination from municipal solid waste landfills. The purpose of the document was to identify and describe human health and environmental impacts (excluding subsurface gas migration) that have resulted from the operation of municipal solid waste landfills and, where possible, determine what role the design, operation, and location of the facility played in creating the problem.
