LAYOUT
§ 1.  — General layout conditions
5. A contaminated soil burial site may not be located less than 1 km upstream of any surface water intake used to supply a municipal waterworks or a waterworks system operated by the holder of a permit issued under section 32.1 of the Act.
The distance prescribed by the first paragraph shall be measured from the inside limit of the buffer zone that must surround every contaminated soil burial site in accordance with section 10.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 5.
6. It is prohibited to lay out a contaminated soil burial site in the flood zone of a watercourse or body of water, where such zone is located within the 100-year flood plain.
“100-year flood plain” means the line that corresponds to the limit line of a flood likely to occur once every 100 years.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 6.
7. It is prohibited to lay out a contaminated soil burial site where ground movement is likely to occur.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 7.
8. Laying out a contaminated soil burial site on land within the supply area of a groundwater collection system intended for the supply of a municipal waterworks or a waterworks system operated by the holder of a permit issued under section 32.1 of the Act or used for the production of spring water or mineral water within the meaning of the Regulation respecting bottled water (chapter P-29, r. 2) is also prohibited.
It is also prohibited to lay out a contaminated soil burial site on land underneath which there is free groundwater having a high aquifer potential. A high aquifer potential exists where pumping tests show that at least 25 m3 of water per hour may be drawn, on a permanent basis, from the same interceptor well.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 8.
9. The maximum height of the final cover of the contaminated soil burial site shall be limited by a maximum slope of 30% and the obligation to maintain the periphery of the burial site at the same level as that of the surrounding soil. In addition, the contaminated soil burial site must integrate into the surrounding landscape.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 9.
10. A contaminated soil burial site shall include, on its periphery, a buffer zone at least 50 m wide intended to safeguard the isolation of the site, to mitigate the nuisances thereof and to allow the carrying out of corrective work. There shall be no watercourse or body of water in that zone.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 10.
§ 2.  — Tightness
11. In order to prevent soil and groundwater from being contaminated, contaminated soil burial sites may only be laid out on lands where the unconsolidated deposits on which the contaminated soils will be deposited are composed on their beds and walls of a natural homogenous layer having on a permanent basis a hydraulic conductivity equal to or less than 1 x 10-6 cm/s to a minimum depth of 3 m.
The zone on which the contaminated soils will be deposited shall be equipped, on their beds and walls, with an impermeabilization system with a double liner made up as follows:
(1)  a bottom protection level made up of an impermeable synthetic membrane of a high-density polyethylene type or having equivalent characteristics at least 1.5 mm thick, installed on the layer of unconsolidated deposits;
(2)  a top protection level made up of an impermeable synthetic membrane of a high-density polyethylene type or having equivalent characteristics at least 1.5 mm thick.
The natural layer and the above-mentioned impermeable membranes must be laid out so as to have a slope of at least 2% to allow the flow, by gravity, of leachates towards the drains.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 11.
§ 3.  — Collection and treatment of leachates
12. Contaminated soil burial sites must be equipped with a system that collects all the leachates and conveys them towards a treatment unit or a leakproof reservoir sheltered from water from precipitation, and that enables the quality of the leachates to be determined before discharge.
“Leachate” means any liquid or filtrate that has percolated through the contaminated soils.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, a leachate collection system must be installed on the sideslopes and bed of the burial site over the impermeable membrane. The system must be designed so that the maximum height of the liquid likely to accumulate on the bed of the burial site may not be greater than 30 cm.
Another system to collect and discharge leachates, intended to detect leakage, must be laid out between the 2 impermeable membranes. The layout of the collection system must allow for monitoring separate from the other collection systems.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 12.
§ 4.  — Collection of gas
13. Contaminated soil burial sites must be equipped with a system enabling all gas present in the soils to be collected and sampled.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 13.
§ 5.  — Collection of surface water
14. Contaminated soil burial sites must be equipped with a surface water collection system that prevents the water from being in contact with the soils deposited there or from penetrating into the zone where the soils are deposited.
O.C. 843-2001, s. 14.
