122. Leachate sampling pursuant to section 105 may be reduced to a frequency of 3 samples per year, in spring, summer and fall if, after a monitoring period of a minimum duration of 3 consecutive years after the landfill site closure date, none of the parameters analyzed in the leachate samplings has exceeded the limit values set out in section 104. The monitoring frequency of all the parameters must be increased to once a month if there is non-compliance for a parameter.
In the case of leachate discharged into a sewer system or treated with the mill’s process water or that undergo treatment before being discharged into the environment or into a storm sewer, the operator must, after the permanent closure of the landfill site, measure leachate twice a year, in June and October. The parameters to be analyzed are those in section 104.
During the 12-month period following the permanent closure of the landfill site, the operator must install biogas measurement stations in the landfilled residual materials if no such stations have been installed. They must be laid out evenly over the entire landfill area. The operator must measure twice a year, in June and October, in each measurement station, the methane concentration contained in the biogas produced by landfilled residual materials. Measurement of the methane concentration is taken on site using a device designed for that purpose.
The operator must send the results of the measurements prescribed in this section to the Minister, including the result of any additional measurement taken in accordance with section 105, within 30 days following the last day of each month in which measurements were taken.
The results, and the reasons for excess or missing data, must be sent to the Minister using media-based information technology conforming to the standard format provided by the Minister that contains the information required by Schedules X and XVII.

The operator may be partially released from monitoring leachate and underground water and, as the case may be, from monitoring biogas and from maintenance obligations if the following conditions are met:
(1)  none of the parameters analyzed in the samples of leachate referred to below has exceeded the limit values set out in section 104:
(a)  leachate discharged before any treatment into a sewer system or treated with mill process water;
(b)  leachate discharged before any treatment into the environment or into a storm sewer;
(2)  the results of the parameters analyzed in the samples of the water in observation wells situated at a maximum distance of 300 m from the landfill site show no degradation relative to the reference well water as a result of the migration of leachate into the soil where the landfill site is situated; if the landfill site is impermeable, the results of the parameters analyzed in the samples of the water in the observation wells bordering the landfill site show no degradation relative to the reference well water as a result of the migration of leachate into the soil where the landfill is situated; and
(3)  biogas measurements taken under section 122 indicate a methane concentration below 25% of its lower explosive limit, or 1.25% per volume.
The operator’s total or partial release application must be supported by a status report from an independent expert on the state of the landfill and, where applicable, its environmental impacts.

Notes:
— The emission standards apply individually to all the emission points of process equipment;
— the brown pulp washing system may include the following sources:
- first stage of washing vent;
- knotter vent;
- foam tank;
- seal tank;
— the recovery furnace includes, where applicable, the direct contact evaporator;
— the concentrations of contaminants measured to verify compliance with emission standards expressed in mg/m3 are corrected to reference conditions, on a dry basis, and to 8% oxygen by volume;
— the concentrations of contaminants measured to verify compliance with the dissolving tank standards are expressed in grams per ton of dry solids contained in the black liquor incinerated in the recovery furnace;
— the concentrations of contaminants measured to verify compliance with emission standards expressed in ppm are calculated on a dry basis and corrected, in the case of a lime kiln, recovery furnace or any other system for treating total reduced sulphur compounds in fuel burning equipment or in an incinerator, to 8% oxygen by volume according to the following formula. In the case of an incinerator of the “regenerative” type, the correction is made to 18% oxygen by replacing the value 12.9 in the formula by 2.9;
E = Ea × (12.9 / (20.9 -A))
where
“E” is the corrected concentration;
“Ea” is the concentration on a dry basis without correction;
“A” is the percentage of oxygen on a dry basis in gases at the sampling site.

(1) The standards of all parameters apply where treatment sludge, de-inking sludge or bark is stored.
(2) Compliance is verified by comparing the standard with the arithmetic average of concentrations measured in the last 4 samples. Despite the foregoing, for other wastewater, the standards are expressed as maximum concentrations.
(3) The flow is required only in the case of a landfill site having a leachate specific treatment system. Measurement of the flow may be taken at the treatment system entry or outflow.

(1): The average dryness value corresponds to the arithmetic average of the dryness measurements taken during a month for each type of residual materials directed to a landfill site. Average dryness is calculated only for mill residual materials whose management code is #1 or #2. Despite the foregoing, the dryness standard applies only where the management code is #1.
(2): The average percentage of biological sludge in dry weight of all the mixture of buried sludge is required only where the management code is #1 and the mill is to use a dryness standard of 15% in accordance with the conditions of section 106.
“Other mill residual materials” means any residue from the pulp or paper product manufacturing process that is not a hazardous material.
Do not enter in the “Other mill residual materials” space: residual materials that are not mill residual materials such as discarded pieces of equipment, construction or demolition waste, used oils, solid residual materials similar to household refuse and sawmill residual materials.
