Department of Ecology seeks input on landfill rule changes
June 12, 2012
The state Department of Ecology seeks citizen input as the agency prepares to amend rules affecting landfills, including the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill near Issaquah.
The amendments to the state administrative code aim to bring the criteria for landfills into alignment with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
The state agency is proposing changes to rules for landfill liner and cover design, standards and procedures for closing landfills, and other landfill practices and procedures.
Citizens can review the proposed rule language and related documents at www.ecy.wa.gov/laws-rules/activity/wac173351.html.
