Zoning board approves landfill expansion for Basin Electric
With about four years remaining for their existing landfill’s capacity, Basin Electric Power Cooperative is looking to expand the Antelope Valley Station special waste landfill.
Kevin Solie, senior environmental compliance administrator with Basin Electric, spoke with the Mercer County Planning and Zoning Board during a meeting Dec. 17 about the plans for this landfill expansion.
“The entire parcel we’re looking at is about 160 acres,” Solie said. The proposed expansion would be north of the existing landfill, while also remaining in the same section (Township 145 North, Range 87 West, Section 7).
