The deed also must reference a map, which must be filed with the county clerk, showing the limits of the active areas as defined in WAC 173-351-100.
(3) Duration of permits. The jurisdictional health department must specify the duration of the MSWLF permit. Except as provided in WAC 173-351-710(5), permits must be renewed at least every five years on a date established by the jurisdictional health department. If a permit is to be renewed for longer than one year, the jurisdictional health department may hold a public hearing before making a decision.

(4) Preconstruction review condition. The jurisdictional health department must include in each permit for a new MSWLF unit or lateral expansion a condition requiring the owner or operator to submit the following documents sixty days prior to beginning construction, and to obtain the jurisdictional health department's approval that the following documents conform to the engineering report and with the requirements of this chapter:
(a) Final design drawings;
(b) Construction specifications; and
(c) A construction quality assurance manual for the following MSWLF components:
(i) Bottom liner;
(ii) Leachate collection and removal system;
(iii) Landfill gas control system;

(a) Under the supervision of an individual licensed to practice engineering in the state of Washington; and
(b) In conformance with the construction quality assurance plan of WAC 173-351-730(6).
(6) Preoperation review conditions. Each permit issued under this chapter for a new MSWLF unit or lateral expansion must contain a condition requiring that upon completion of construction, the licensed engineer who supervised construction must certify or declare in writing that the construction is in accordance with the terms of the applicable permit and tested in accordance with construction quality assurance plans of WAC 173-351-730(6). Except as specified elsewhere in this regulation, this certification or declaration must be submitted to the jurisdictional health department within three months after completion of construction and must include recorded construction drawings and specifications.

If construction or operation activities started under a permit issued pursuant to this chapter cease for a period of twelve consecutive months, the jurisdictional health department may in its discretion revoke the permit. The jurisdictional health department must provide notice to the owner or operator in writing explaining the reasons for revocation. The jurisdictional health department must not revoke a permit where the cessation of construction or operation is caused by factors beyond the reasonable control of the permittee or when such cessation is in accordance with the provisions of the permit.
