1.2 Description:
1.2.1	Abstract:
	
	This layer contains both open and closed Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Sites 
        in the State of Texas. The locations for this layer were obtained from the 
        Municipal Solid Waste Division as recorded from the permit. This layer was 
        built using the best existing location data available at TCEQ. Although some 
        location errors were found and corrected in the process, some errors still 
        remain. Some locational errors have been identified and provided to the 
        custodian for correction.  As resources allow, TCEQ intends to improve the 
        accuracy of these locations to meet the standards set forth in the agency 
        Positional Data Policy.

        Level 3 Certification - This layer does not meet the minimum                                       
        25 meter agency standard. The layer was certified with known                                    
        problems that have been documented in the metadata. It is                                    
        not suitable for high-precision measurement applications.

1.2.2	Purpose:
	General purpose use, to determine locations of landfill permits maintained 
        by TCEQ. This layer is currently certified as a Phase One layer, which means 
        it uses existing data that does not meet the Positional Data Policy standards, 
        and that it should not be used to pinpoint individual features on large scale 
        maps or displays.  NOTE: Five landfills have incorrect coordinates that place 
        them outside of Texas. Their facility id numbers are: 201, 294, 894, 1491, and 
        1522. These landfills are retained in this map layer as placemarkers for correction.



Supplemental Information:

	IMPORTANT NOTE: The LANDFILL.DAT and LANDFILL.PAT can be linked by the
	common field "GIN" in both tables, using the relate file LANDFILL.REL.


	To query for OPEN landfills:
	Select for STATUS = "O", and FAC_TYPE = 1 thru 4

	To query for CLOSED landfills:
	Select for STATUS = "C", and TYPE_FAC containing 1,2,3,or 4

	To query for POTENTIAL landfill sites:
	Select STATUS = "P", and TYPE_FAC containing 1,2,3,or 4

	    that are new, that have been closed, that have been mapped more accurately,
	    or whose billing status has changed. Changes in landfill attribute data
	    will be reflected in the coverage as well. Every quarter, usually in the
	    months of October, January, April, and July.

2.1      Attribute_Accuracy:
2.1.1       Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
            Attributes are extracted electronically from TCEQ's PERMAPP
            and FACRPT databases. There are numerous missing 
            attribute values and a few invalid attribute values; these 
            will be cleaned up in future versions of this dataset.

2.2      Logical_Consistency_Report:
         All data are extracted electronically from TCEQ's PERMAPP and 
         FACRPT databases.

2.3      Completeness_Report: 
         All data are extracted electronically from TCEQ's PERMAPP and 
         FACRPT databases.

2.4      Positional_Accuracy:  

2.4.1       Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
2.4.1.1        Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
	       Facility coordinates used in this coverage are taken from the 
               permit application form. There are no specific requirements or 
               instructions to the permit applicant concerning how the coordinate 
               should be measured. However, each permit application must include a 
               legal description of the site which implies that the site must be 
               surveyed. TCEQ currently accepts coordinates as reported by applicants 
               and has no way of knowing what method was used to measure the coordinates.

	       Locations were accepted as reported by the applicant. 297 entries in
	       the PERMAPP database designated as Permitted Solid Waste Facilities were
	       not included in the coverage due to lack of coordinates or unreasonable
	       coordinates (ie, latitude = 2). The majority of these are closed. Nine
	       facilities included in the coverage had coordinates which incorrectly placed
	       them outside the state. These are all closed except for one site not yet
	       accepting waste.

5.2 	Overview Description:
5.2.1	Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
	This layer will be updated on a regular basis to reflect landfills that
	are new, that have been closed, that have been mapped more accurately,
	or whose billing status has changed. Changes in landfill attribute data
	will be reflected in the coverage as well. Every quarter, usually in the
	months of October, January, April, and July.


	The LANDFILL.DAT and LANDFILL.PAT can be linked by the common field "GIN"
	in both tables, using the relate file LANDFILL.REL.


	To query for OPEN landfills:
	Select for STATUS = "O", and FAC_TYPE containing 1 thru 4

	To query for CLOSED landfills:
	Select for STATUS = "C", and TYPE_FAC containing 1,2,3,or 4

	To query for POTENTIAL landfill sites:
	Select STATUS = "P", and TYPE_FAC containing 1,2,3,or 4
