(1)    located contiguous with the electric generating unit;

(2)    intended to be beneficially reused;

(3)    placed into beneficial reuse; or

(4)    placed in an appropriate landfill which meets the standards of the Department of Health and Environmental Control Regulation 61-107, and that is owned or operated by the entity that produced the electricity which resulted in the coal combustion residuals.

(B)    The 'beneficial reuse' of coal combustion residuals, as used in this section, is subject to the applicable regulations as promulgated by the Department of Health and Environmental Control."
