Oregon, Mo., MO (2009-07-21) Holt County residents will get a chance to share their opinions on some pending permits next week.
A public hearing will be held next Tuesday to discuss the draft hazardous waste permit for Exide Technologies. The hearing will take place in Oregon, Missouri across from the Holt County Court House at 6 o'clock. The public is encouraged to offer comments and share concerns with representatives from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Renee Bungart with the Department of Natural Resources says representatives will not be responding to comments during the hearing, but comments voiced by citizens will still very important to the process.
If the permits in question are issued as written, Exide Technologies will be allowed to continue storing hazardous wastes in containers and containment buildings, treat hazardous waste in a stabilization unit, and dispose of hazardous wastes in an on-site landfill.
