Public Notice for SWFP Modification
|The operator has submitted an application to correct the total square feet (ft2) of the transfer station building from 48,605 ft2 to 53,285ft2 based on the operator review of original as-built technical drawings and measurements taken of the facility. As a result of this correction, the design capacity utilizing a pile height of twelve feet instead of nine feet, was recalculated resulting in an updated design capacity for the amount of municipal solid waste storage on the tipping floor from 3,402 tons per day to 5,249 tons per day.||4-12-2013||N/A||Anthony Torres
