At waste management facilities, which were admitted after May 1, 2008, the concentration of 10 must not exceed ppm.
6 additional requirements for completing operating plans for the closure of waste management facilities of the contractor is without prejudice to the provisions of § 69 para 2 of the Federal Mining Act in the final management plan to represent whether, after the closure of the waste facility, a follow-up to ensure of the physical and chemical stability is required to avoid impairment of human health and the environment, in particular water. The follow-up includes in particular the testing and monitoring of the waste facility including required measurements with appropriate equipment, the cleaning and maintenance of existing overflow channels and channels, other conservation measures, as well as the regular reporting on the State of the system to the competent authority. The operator has all the events after the closure of the waste facility, which may affect the stability of the system, inform the competent authority, as well as all necessary measurements, to transmit data and test reports.
