U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced it would put a stop to two Obama-era rules for new and existing dumps meant to cut methane emissions at landfills.

The EPA will reconsider the rules after industry groups protested the Obama Administration’s final rules for both rules: “Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills” and Emission Guidelines and Compliance Times for Municipal Solis Waste Landfills.” The notice issued today (article from The Hill HERE) underlines six topics EPA plans to review, including emissions monitoring, liquids reporting, timing for corrective action, overlapping applicability with other rules, and design plan approval. All of the proposed revisions fall neatly in line with claims included in pending industry lawsuits challenging the standards.
