after unless released prior thereto by the Department upon receipt
of assurance that the landfill has been closed and covered in the
required manner. The bond shall be executed by the applicant and
by a corporate surety licensed to do business in the State of Mary-
land. In lieu of having the bond executed by a corporate surety, the
applicant may elect to deposit, with the local governing body, cash
or negotiable bonds of the U. S. Government or of the State of
Maryland or any other securities acceptable to the Department. The
amount of the cash deposit or the market value of any securities
shall be at least equal to the required sum of the bond. The local
governing body shall receive and hold any such cash or securities in
the name of the appropriate subdivision, in trust, for the purposes
for which the deposit is posted. The Department shall adopt stand-
ards for the closing and covering of landfill refuse disposal systems.
The obligation of the applicant and of any corporate surety under
the bond shall become due and payable, and all or any part of any
cash or securities shall be applied to payment of the costs of proper-
ly closing and covering a landfill only if the Department has (1)
notified the applicant and any corporate surety that the landfill has
not been closed or covered in a manner which prevents erosion,
health and safety hazards, nuisances, and pollution, specifying in
such notice the particular deficiencies in the closing or covering of
the landfill to be corrected; and (2) given the applicant and any
corporate surety a reasonable opportunity to correct such deficien-
cies and to close and cover the landfill in accordance with the stand-
ards adopted by the Department; and (3) authorized the local
governing body to close and cover the landfill properly in accord-
ance with the standards adopted by the Department.
