Public Notice:

In accordance with the provisions of the Wyoming Environmental Quality Act and Chapter 1 of the Solid Waste Rules and Regulations, the Town of Thermopolis has submitted a low hazard and low volume permit application for the Thermopolis LHLV Transfer Station.

This facility provides for the transfer, treatment, and storage of municipal solid waste which have been generated within the Town of Thermopolis, the Town of East Thermopolis, the Town of Kirby, and within the unincorporated areas of Hot Springs County. The 10-acre facility is located 3-miles north of Thermopolis. More specifically, this facility is located in the S l/2NW1/4 of Section 25, T43N, R95W, in Hot Springs County, Wyoming. The volumetric capacity of this facility is estimated to be 50 cubic yards per day of municipal 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 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 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.

Copies of the permit application, the DEQ's review of the application, and the proposed permit can be viewed at DEQ's Casper office 152 North Durbin Street, Suite 100, Casper, WY.

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 September 24, 2020 and end on October 30, 2020. Any comments or formal written objections must be received by 5:00 PM on the last day of the notice period. Comments or formal objections must be submitted in writing to the Department of Environmental Quality, Todd Parfitt, Director, 200 West 17th Street, Cheyenne, WY 82002. Formal written objections must be accompanied by a statement of the facts upon which the objection is based.
