Point of Compliance
The physical location where water quality must meet the surface/groundwater criteria of the IRMA Standard or other relevant water quality objectives.
The point of compliance for a surface water discharge is the point of discharge.
The points of compliance for groundwater are all groundwater monitoring sites located outside the groundwater capture zone (see the definition for capture zone); in no case shall mine-related contaminants extend beyond the mine boundary.
If a mixing zone is authorized, then the point of compliance is at the edge of the mixing zone.
