             73      byproduct in a public project; and
             74          (b) reasonable standards for demonstrating, without regard to the industrial byproduct's

             77      regarding the management of an industrial byproduct that is reused as provided by this part and
             78      Section 72-6-106.5 .
             79          (b) The board may adopt a rule requiring a report described in Subsection (2)(a) if the

             91      complete.
             92          (3) The executive secretary shall approve an application submitted under Subsection
             93      (1) if the applicant shows:
             94          (a) the industrial byproduct meets the applicable health risk standard;
             95          (b) the industrial byproduct satisfies the applicable toxicity characteristic leaching
             96      procedure;
             97          (c) the proposed method of installation and type of reuse meet the applicable health
             98      risk standard; and
             99          (d) that future reuse of the industrial byproduct, including maintenance work, will be:
             100          (i) in the same general geographic location; and
             101          (ii) for the same or similar purpose.
             102          Section 5. Section 72-6-106.5 is enacted to read:
             103          72-6-106.5. Reuse of industrial byproducts.
             104          (1) As used in this section:
             105          (a) "Executive secretary" has the same meaning as defined in Section 19-6-1102 .
             106          (b) "Industrial byproduct" has the same meaning as defined in Section 19-6-1102 .
             107          (c) "Public project" has the same meaning as defined in Section 19-6-1102 .
             108          (d) "Reuse" has the same meaning as defined in Section 19-6-1102 .
             109          (2) Consistent with the protection of public health and the environment and generally
             110      accepted engineering practices, the department, shall, to the maximum extent possible:
             111          (a) allow and encourage the reuse of an industrial byproduct in:
             112          (i) a plan, specification, and estimate for a public project; and
             113          (ii) advertising for a bid for a public project;
             114          (b) use and contract for the reuse of an industrial byproduct in:
             115          (i) landscaping;
             116          (ii) a general geotechnical fill;
             117          (iii) a structural fill;
             118          (iv) concrete or asphalt;
             119          (v) a base or subbase; and
             120          (vi) geotechnical drainage materials;

             121          (c) promulgate and apply public project specifications that allow reuse of an industrial
             122      byproduct based upon:
             123          (i) cost;
             124          (ii) performance; and
             125          (iii) engineered equivalency in lifespan, durability, and maintenance;
             126          (d) consider applying a preference for the reuse of an industrial byproduct, unless it is
             127      demonstrated that the reuse of an industrial byproduct is not cost effective based on lifespan,
             128      durability, and maintenance costs of the pavement, structure, fill area, or another area that
             129      could contain an industrial byproduct; and
             130          (e) consider applying a preference even if the industrial byproduct may result in a
             131      modest additional cost where it can be shown that the benefit to the state or community from
             132      the reduced energy and disposal costs for the industrial byproduct would merit an additional
             133      public project expense.
             134          (3) After an approval by the executive secretary under Section 19-6-1104 :
             135          (a) the department is responsible for the management of the industrial byproduct; and
             136          (b) the generator or originator of the industrial byproduct is not responsible for the
             137      industrial byproduct under Title 19, Environmental Quality Code.
             138          (4) The department shall submit a written report within 60 days to the executive
             139      secretary describing the location and type of reuse, if applicable, of an industrial byproduct if:
             140          (a) the reuse takes place at a location that is different from the location in the
             141      application approved under Section 19-6-1104 ;
             142          (b) the industrial byproduct is moved to a location different than the location in the
             143      application approved under Section 16-6-1104 ; or
             144          (c) the industrial byproduct is removed to a permitted solid waste disposal facility.
