MPCA accepting comments on waste concrete permits

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is inviting comments through September 11 on a statewide permit that would regulate burial of waste concrete. Under this permit, homeowners and others could dispose of concrete by burying it on sites where the concrete originated, as long as they applied for a permit and certain conditions were met.

The concrete cannot be contaminated with petroleum products or hazardous substances. Also, the local zoning authority must sign the permit application.

The draft permit is available on the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Public Notices
