Except as otherwise provided in this division, the existence of solid wastes on the working face of a construction and demolition debris facility does not constitute a violation of this chapter and rules adopted under it if both of the following apply:

(1) The wastes constitute not more than two cubic yards per one thousand cubic yards of construction and demolition debris or four cubic yards per one thousand tons of construction and demolition debris disposed of at the construction and demolition debris facility based on the amount of construction and demolition debris disposed of at the facility on the preceding full business day as determined by using the amount of disposal fees collected under section 3714.07 of the Revised Code for wastes disposed of at the facility on that preceding full business day.

(2) The owner or operator or the employees of the facility remove the solid wastes from the working face of the facility.

The existence of solid wastes on the working face of a construction and demolition debris facility that is located within the boundaries of a sole source aquifer as described in division (B) of section 3714.03 of the Revised Code constitutes a violation of this chapter and rules adopted under it.

(C) The board of health of the health district in which a construction and demolition debris facility is located, the director of environmental protection, or an authorized representative of either shall request the removal of specific, visible solid wastes that are located on the working face of a construction and demolition debris facility, and the owner or operator or the employees of the facility shall remove those solid wastes.
