A draft renewal permit for the Intermountain Power Service Corp. to continue operation of a combustion byproducts sanitary landfill near Delta has been approved. But the final permit won't be issued until after a public comment period that extends through July 8.
Officials of the Division of Utah Solid and Hazardous Waste noted that the landfill may accept the ash and residues produced as a result of burning coal for generation of electrical power.It was emphasized that hazardous waste will not be acceptable, however.
Copies of the application and draft permit are available at the division's headquarters, 288 N. 1460 West, in Salt Lake City and at two south-central Utah locations. These are the Central Utah Public Health Department, 70 W. View Drive in Richfield, and at the applicant's office at 850 W. Brush Wellman Road in Delta.
