Department to host public hearing on draft permit for utility waste landfill in Franklin County

Jefferson City, Mo. - The Missouri Department of Natural Resources will conduct a public hearing April 8 on the draft solid waste disposal area construction permit allowing Ameren Missouri to construct the Ameren Missouri Labadie Utility Waste Landfill in Franklin County.

The proposed site at 226 Labadie Power Plant Road, is about 2.5 miles northeast of the town of Labadie and immediately southeast of the Missouri River in northeast Franklin County. It consists of 813 acres. The landfill disposal area is approximately 166.5 acres, divided into four cells. The proposed facility will be used for disposal of coal combustion by-products, including, but not limited to, fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag and flue gas desulfurization wastes.

The hearing will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in the lower level of the Knights of Columbus Hall, 1121 Columbus Lane in Washington.

The department’s Solid Waste Management Program reviews all applications submitted by cities, counties and private owners to ensure solid waste disposal areas are properly designed and constructed. Other technical factors protecting Missouri’s environment are also examined.

Additional information on the department’s Solid Waste Management Program is available online.
