Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing on a draft permit modification from the Department of Environmental Quality for the Rockingham County Sanitary Landfill. The County of Rockingham has applied for a modification to a permit that allows the Rockingham County Sanitary Landfill to operate an existing landfill in Rockingham County. This modification to the permit would allow an increase of daily disposal limit from 600 tons/day to 900 tons/day and a 49.7-acre new disposal area, designated as Phases 5A through 5C, that consists of a lateral expansion area (39.0 acres) and a piggyback area on the south slope of the Old Fill Part 2 (10.7 acres). As a result of the expansion, the total disposal area footprint (Old Fills and Phases 1 through 5C) for the facility is 104.6 acres (excluding piggyback acreage). The modification increases landfill capacity from 6,716,000 cubic yards to 15,275,000 cubic yards. The comment period begins on November 2, 2016 and closes on December 22, 2016.
