What kind of development is allowed on a closed landfill?
For sites that are deed recorded, development is allowed, but limited. The limitation for development is due to the potential disturbance of the landfills final cover or liner. According to the Texas Administrative Code, disturbance of the final cover or liner systems is prohibited. Some of these prohibitions include borings, piers, spread footings, foundations for light standards, fence posts, manholes, onsite disposal systems, and recreational facilities.
