LOCAL ATTORNEY TO APPEAL AIR QUALITY PERMIT March 8, 2010

What does it come down to? They’re guessing!

In the wake of the news that Nevada Department of Environmental Protection issued an air quality permit to Jungo Land & Investments for development of a class 1 landfill, Dolan responded by hitting the books.

  1. while Dolan hits the books to become a quick study on air quality maybe Jim French should go back to the books after reading the USGS study. the short study jim, you have been wrong.

    • In your comment you state; while Dolan hits the books to become a quick study on air quality maybe Jim French should go back to the books after reading the USGS study. the short study jim, you have been wrong.

      Its very interesting how tow people can read the same material and come up with such different conclusions. Please state where you believe Jim French is wrong. Be specific.

      I have read the entire study and find first of all the data is old;
      second: Mr. Lopes suggests; Some basic groundwater-quality data (such as sodium and chloride) exists in the Jungo area, but anthropogenic contaminants (such as volatile organic compounds) are known to occur along railroads. It would be prudent to assess groundwater for anthropogenic contaminants prior to construction of the facility and to age-date the groundwater to verify groundwater velocities. It also is unknown if groundwater is moving south to Rye Patch Reservoir or west to the Black Rock Desert. This work could be done by RecologyTM or by an impartial third party. Data needed to better evaluate the Jungo area include:
      1. Survey wells using a differential global positioning system to measure well and groundwater altitudes to within 0.1 ft;
      2. Sample groundwater around the proposed Jungo landfill site to characterize baseline water quality;
      3. Use geochemical techniques to date groundwater and verify groundwater velocities; and
      4. Drill wells to the south and west to determine directions of groundwater flow from southern Desert Valley.
      and third: There is no reference to what influence seismic activity could have on the study assumptions.

      Now if you want to know where Recology has been wrong or misleading in there permitting process and their delivery of information to the community, I will be happy to go there.

      Respectfully,
      Fred Baryol
