52 (vi) residual from the extraction, beneficiation, and processing of an ore or mineral;
53 (vii) cement kiln dust; or
54 (viii) contaminated soil extracted as a result of a corrective action at a permitted
55 hazardous waste facility.
56 (b) "Industrial byproduct" does not include material that:
57 (i) causes a public nuisance or public health hazard; or
58 (ii) is a hazardous waste under Part 1, Solid and Hazardous Waste Act.
59 (3) "Public project" means a project of the Department of Transportation to construct:
60 (a) a highway or road;
61 (b) a curb;
62 (c) a gutter;
63 (d) a walkway;
64 (e) a parking facility;
65 (f) a public transportation facility; or
66 (g) a facility, infrastructure, or transportation improvement that benefits the public.
67 (4) "Reuse" means to use an industrial byproduct in place of a raw material.
68 Section 3. Section 19-6-1103 is enacted to read:
69 19-6-1103. Rulemaking -- Reporting.
70 (1) In accordance with Title 63G, Chapter 3, Utah Administrative Rulemaking Act, the
71 Solid and Hazardous Waste Control Board may make rules to implement this part, including:
72 (a) a streamlined application procedure designed to encourage reuse of an industrial
73 byproduct in a public project; and
74 (b) reasonable standards for demonstrating, without regard to the industrial byproduct's
75 source, the safety of the reuse and future reuse of an industrial byproduct.
76 (2) (a) Except as provided by Subsection (2)(b), the board may not require a report
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
80 board demonstrates that the report is reasonably required to meet a compelling public safety
82 (3) The executive secretary shall receive reports from the Department of Transportation
83 as required by Section 72-6-106.5 .
84 Section 4. Section 19-6-1104 is enacted to read:
85 19-6-1104. Applications for industrial byproduct reuse -- Approval by the
86 executive secretary.
87 (1) A person may submit to the executive secretary an application for reuse of an
88 industrial byproduct.
89 (2) The executive secretary shall respond to an application submitted under Subsection
90 (1) within 60 days of the day on which the executive secretary determines the application is
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
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

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.
