The Department of the Environment is responsible for regulating fugitive air emissions from the transportation of coal combustion by-products and the permissible beneficial uses of these by-products in the State. This legislation restricts the siting of new refuse disposal systems accepting coal combustion by-products in critical natural resource areas (defined in Natural Resources Article, 8-1802, Annotated Code of Maryland).
