(g)           Wetlands, if any.

(h)           Boundary of the proposed waste area.

(i)            Existing topography with contours at a minimum of five foot intervals. Where necessary, a smaller interval shall be utilized to clarify existing topographic conditions.

(j)            Proposed excavation, grading, and final contours at a minimum of five foot intervals. Where necessary, a smaller interval shall be utilized to clarify proposed grading. Excavation, grading, and fill material side slopes shall not exceed three to one (3:1).

(k)           Where on site borrow for operational and final cover is proposed, indicate the borrow excavation and grading plan with contours at a minimum of five foot intervals. Where necessary, a smaller interval shall be utilized to clarify proposed grading.

(i)            Original elevations.

(ii)           Proposed excavation.

(iii)          Proposed final elevations.

(4)           An operational plan addressing the requirements under Rule .0566 of this Section and containing the following information shall be submitted with the application for a proposed Land Clearing and Inert Debris (LCID) landfill:
