  (6) Match lines and section lines shall reference the drawing where the match or section is shown. Section drawings should note from where the section was taken.

(i) Posting application information.

  (1) Upon submittal of an application, the owner or operator shall provide a complete copy of any application that requires public notice, except for authorizations at Type IAE and Type IVAE landfill facilities, including all revisions and supplements to the application, on a publicly accessible internet website, and provide the commission with the Web address link for the application materials. This internet posting is for informational purposes only.

  (2) The commission shall post on its website the identity of all owners and operators filing such applications and the Web address link required by this subsection.

  (3) For applications for new permits or major amendments, an owner or operator shall post notice signs at the site within 30 days of the executive director's receipt of an application. This sign posting is for informational purposes only. Signs must:

    (A) consist of dark lettering on a white background and must be no smaller than four feet by four feet with letters at least three inches in height and block printed capital lettering;

    (B) identify as appropriate that the application is for a proposed permitted facility or an amendment to a permitted facility;

    (C) include the words "For further information on how the public may participate in Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) permitting matters, contact TCEQ," the toll free telephone number for the Public Education Program, and the agency's website address;

    (D) include the name and address of the owner or operator;

    (E) include the telephone number of the owner or operator; and

    (F) remain in place and legible until the close of the final comment period.

  (4) Signs must be located within ten feet of every property line bordering a public highway, street, or road. Signs must be visible from the street and spaced at not more than 1,500-foot intervals. A minimum of one sign, but no more than three signs, shall be required along any property line parallel to a public highway, street, or road. This paragraph's sign requirements do not apply to properties under the same ownership that are noncontiguous or separated by intervening public highway, street, or road, unless the property is part of the permitted facility.

  (5) The owner or operator shall also post signs at the facility in an alternative language when the alternative language requirements in §39.405(h)(2) of this title (relating to General Notice Provisions) are met.

  (6) The executive director may approve variances from the requirements of paragraphs (3), (4), and (5) of this subsection if the owner or operator has demonstrated that it is not practical to comply with the specific requirements of those paragraphs and alternative sign posting plans proposed by the owner or operator are at least as effective in providing notice to the public. Approval from the executive director under this paragraph must be received before posting alternative signs for purposes of satisfying the requirements of this subsection.
