It has been learned through email correspondence that NDEP is preparing to issue an operating permit for a landfill in Desert Valley west of Winnemucca. This should come as no surprise to anyone as it has been evident that NDEP has been “in the bag” on this from the outset. After months of having it pointed out to them, they still have the wind blowing from the wrong direction in Desert Valley and haven’t even bothered to correct that! The risks to the environment and the health and welfare of the community that have been brought up and the overwhelming local opposition to this proposal has had no impact on NDEP.

They have indicated they will issue the permit on Wednesday, February 29, 2012. We can only wait and see who might appeal this before the SEC at this point. Nevadans Against Garbage will keep you informed as best we can, and will bring you additional details if and when we learn of them.
