(a) The Agency may not issue any new permit for the construction or
development of any solid waste disposal facility that is proposed
to be located above an active or inactive shaft or tunnelled mine or within 200
feet of a fault that has had displacement within Holocene time, unless
engineering measures have been incorporated into the facility design to ensure
that the integrity of the structural components of the facility will not be
disrupted by geological processes.
(b) For the purposes of this Section, "structural components" means liners,
leachate collection systems, final covers, run-on and run-off
systems, and any other component used in the construction and operation of a
solid waste disposal facility that is necessary for protection of
