PURPOSE OF NOTICE: To seek public comment on a tentative variance to allow a change in reporting groundwater monitoring results at solid waste landfills with permits from the Department of Environmental Quality.


PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD:  January 23, 2013 to February 22, 2013


PERMIT NAME: Warren County Sanitary Landfill (SWP 184)


FACILITY NAME AND LOCATION:  Warren County Sanitary Landfill, 232 Shangri-La Road, Bentonville, VA 22610


VARIANCE DESCRIPTION: The landfill owner/operator has asked that the requirement to report groundwater monitoring results on a semi-annual or quarterly basis be replaced with a requirement to report the calendar year’s sampling data on an annual basis.  In an effort to reduce reporting redundancy and its related cost burden on the owner/operator while still remaining protective of human health and the environment through requiring sampling data be reported annually, the DEQ has tentatively decided to grant this request.


HOW TO COMMENT: DEQ accepts comments on this proposed decision by e-mail, fax or postal mail. All comments must include the name, address and telephone number of the person commenting and be received by DEQ within the 30-day comment period. The public may review the variance document at the DEQ offices named below.
