G. Brown and Commissioner LarryW. <br />Dennison. <br /> <br />BUSINESS FROM COUNTY DEPARTMENTS: <br /> <br />PUBLIC WORKS <br /> <br />Linda Atkins re: Request for Variance for Jefferson County <br />Landfill: Linda Atkins, Environmental Heal th Specialist for the Health <br />Department, reported that the.Jefferson county Public Works Department has <br />submitted requests for four variances for the Jefferson County Landfill. The <br />Health Department has reviewed and recommends they be sent on to the state <br />Department of Ecology. <br /> <br />A Class 1 variance is being sought because waste will be placed on the un- <br />lined landfill and will be left there. The variance application lists the <br />hydro-geological reasons why the waste can be placed on the landfill and not <br />cause a public health hazard in the future. <br /> <br />A variance for a time extension is being requested to allow completion of <br />engineering studies and improvements. The non-conforming facility will be <br />operated during the period of the extension. Linda Atkins reported that she <br />found in her review of the hydrqlogical study and ground water monitoring <br />results, that no degradation is taking place and monitoring will continue on <br />the site. Gas monitoring has begun and will be expanded. <br /> <br />A variance from desiqn stanQards is being requested because the site won't <br />be closed and waste will be added to an unlined site after the deadline. A <br />time extension for the addition of waste to the site is also being requested. <br />R.W. Beck has done some preliminary work on what the contours of the site <br />will be due to the addition of this waste and any impacts that it will have <br />on surface drainage in the area. <br /> <br />A V~riance for a surface impoundment (septaqe lagoon) at the landfill. <br />Detailed information has been provided on the underlying glacial till and the <br />barrier it forms under this lagoon. The preferred method of treatment of <br />septageis to treat it at the City of Port Townsend Secondary Treatment Plant <br />when it is in operation. There is a memorandum of understanding between the <br />city and the County to have the City take the county septage when their <br />secondary treatment plant is on line. Testing's being done every quarter <br />to check for any leaching down slope from the 1 goon. <br /> <br />After further discussion of the septage lagoon a the landfill, Linda Atkins <br />recommended that the variance requests be submi ted to the state Department <br /> <br />l VOl <br /> <br /> <br />5,944 <br />
