In accordance with the provisions of the Wyoming Environmental Quality Act and Chapter 1, Section 1(f) of the Solid Waste Rules and Regulations, the Town of Manville has submitted a closure permit application for the Manville #2 Landfill.

This facility has provided for the disposal of municipal solid wastes which has been generated by the Town of Manville and surrounding area.  The approximately 3.58 acre facility is located approximately 1.5 miles south east of the Town of Manville. More specifically, this facility is located in the SE ¼, NE ¼ of Section 12, T32N R65W, in Niobrara County, Wyoming. The total volumetric capacity of this facility is estimated to be 11,000 cubic yards of solid waste. The waste has been excavated and disposed of in the Lusk Landfill. 

The Department of Environmental Quality, Solid and Hazardous Waste Division (DEQ) has reviewed the application and determined that it is generally complete and suitable for publication.  The DEQ’s solid waste rules, in Chapter 1, Section 2 (b)(ii), require that the applicant must provide public notice that a proposed permit has been issued and inform the public that there is an opportunity to file comments on the proposed permit before it is issued in final form.  The notice is also required to indicate that the public may file formal written objections to issuance of a final permit.  This publication provides notice of those opportunities.
