15 Presentation Outline Communication Request Background Waivers Recommendation 15

16 Waivers 1.Wekiva Study Area Presumptive Prohibition 2.Third-Party Consultant Review of Cell 3-6 Liner Exemption 3.Less than 5 Feet Between Landfill Base and Seasonal High Water Table, Cells Final Elevations Above Original Grade 5.Reduced Setbacks on Southern and Portion of Western Boundary 6.Reduced Landscape Visual Buffer (Trees) 7.Plans with Grades Depicted at Lines at 2-foot Instead of 1-foot Contour Interval 16

17 Waivers 1.Wekiva Study Area Presumptive Prohibition 2004FS 369 Part III – Wekiva Parkway and Protection Act construct Wekiva Parkway protect water resources in Wekiva Study Area (WSA) 2007Comprehensive Plan Amendments for Wekiva 2008Study - Siting Solid Waste Facilities in WSA 2009Chapter 32 Art V amendments presumptive prohibition of both C&D and Class III landfills in all but least vulnerable portions of WSA 17

18 Primary (more vulnerable) Secondary (vulnerable) Tertiary (less vulnerable) Wekiva (Floridan) Aquifer Vulnerability Assessment The tendency or likelihood for contaminants to reach the top of the Floridan Aquifer System after introduction at land surface. Wekiva River Protection Area 18 Wekiva Study Area

19 Waivers 1.Wekiva Study Area Presumptive Prohibition –current C&D permit is grandfathered –Class III proposal not grandfathered –The proposed Class III design is more protective of the environment and the FAS [Floridan Aquifer System] … (regardless of underlying geology) –in South 120 acres during operational phase with weekly cover once each Cell is capped with top liner –in North 100 acres during operational phase with bottom liner once each Cell is capped with top liner 19

20 Waivers 2.Third-Party Consultant Review of Cell 3-6 Liner Exemption –EPD determines if applicant satisfies liner exemption criteria –In making determination, a third-party consultant should be hired to provide a third opinion to EPD –Applicant requests, The FDEPs review of the subject permit application can be considered a 3rd party review. FDEP liner exemption criteria is the same FDEP approved permit modification in Oct

21 Waivers 3.Less than 5 Feet Between Landfill Base and Seasonal High Water Table, Cells 7-10 –Code states, Alternatives to the five-foot layer may be allowed as a waiver providing that equivalent performance criteria is met. –The proposed bottom geomembrane liner, … will provide in excess of equivalent performance to the impedance of leachate as would have the 5 feet of soil… 21

22 Waivers 4.Final Elevations Above Original Grade –BCC waiver is required for filling above natural grade –BCC can allow up to 50 feet above grade –Historic natural grade varies from 143 ft down to 70 ft (above sea level) –Existing site plan peaks at 137 ft (above sea level) has waiver for up to 43 ft above grade at some locations –Proposed site plan peaks at 168 ft (above sea level) requests waiver for up to 50 ft above grade at some locations 22

23 SOUTH NORTH (slopes not to scale) Waivers 23 Historic Natural Grade

24 SOUTH NORTH (slopes not to scale) Waivers 24 Excavation Pit Historic Natural Grade

25 SOUTH NORTH (slopes not to scale) Waivers ft Historic Natural Grade Max Allowable by Waiver + 50 ft

26 SOUTH NORTH (slopes not to scale) Waivers 26 Max Allowable by Waiver Permitted C&D Final Grade

27 SOUTH NORTH (slopes not to scale) Waivers 27 Max Allowable by Waiver Proposed Class III Final Grade

30 Waivers 5.Reduced Setbacks on Southern and Portion of Western Boundary –below grade setback is per excavation permit (doesnt require waiver) –above grade setback by code is 150 ft in these areas –request to reduce to 50 ft in areas adjacent to: an existing Class III landfill an Orange County borrow pit 30

31 Waivers Existing Golden Gem Road Class III Landfill Mid-Florida Materials 31 Above grade starting at 50 ft setback (with Class III starting at 100 ft setback) 0 C&D Class III Orange County Borrow Pit (slope not to scale)

32 Waivers 6.Reduced Landscape Visual Buffer (Trees) –primarily used as visual buffer with 1 tree / 60 feet –request no trees along property boundary shared with another landfill –existing waiver (for both landfills) Property boundary 32 Mid-Florida Materials

33 Waivers Existing Golden Gem Road Class III Landfill Areas with reduced landscaping (no trees) Mid-Florida Materials 33

34 Waivers 7.Plans with Grades Depicted at Lines at 2-foot Instead of 1-foot Contour Interval –Plan sheets more legible –In this instance did not negatively affect ability to review 34

35 Presentation Outline Communication Request Background Waivers Recommendation 35

36 BCC Action Requested APPROVAL OF MODIFICATION OF THE SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY PERMIT #SW LFCD- 85/1212 TO A CLASS III LANDFILL FOR HUBBARD CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, DBA MID-FLORIDA MATERIALS, WITH WAIVERS AND WITH CONDITIONS, FOR THE CURRENT PERMIT DURATION OF DECEMBER 3,
