In accordance with the provisions of the Wyoming Environmental Quality Act and Chapter 1, Section 2(j) of the Solid Waste Rules and Regulations, the High Country Joint Power Board has submitted a low hazard and low volume permit application for the High Country Joint Power Board Convenience Center LHLV Transfer Station.

The proposed facility is located one-half mile north of the Town of Hanna. More specifically, this facility is located in the N 1/2 of the NE1/4 of Section 16, T22N, R8 l W, in Carbon County, Wyoming.

The total volumetric capacity of this facility is estimated to be 192 cubic yards of solid waste. The life of the facility is indefinite.

The Department of Environmental Quality, Solid and Hazardous Waste Division (DEQ) has determined that the permit application is generally complete and technically adequate. DEQ's solid waste rules, in Chapter 1, Section 2 (j)(iii)(A), 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 comment on the draft 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.

Any interested person has the right to either: provide comments on the proposed permit, which DEQ will consider prior to taking final action on the permit application, or file formal written objections to the proposed permit. The period for providing comments, or filing formal written objections to the proposed permit, shall begin on January 31, 2018 and end on March 9, 2018.  Any comments or formal written objections must be received by 5:00 PM on the last day of the notice period.
