Notice of Proposed Comprehensive Bond Review for Weyerhaeuser, Operating Permit 00167

 

Legal Notice

 

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has completed a comprehensive bond review for Weyerhaeuser Company (Weyerhaeuser) which operates 96 rock quarries in northwestern Montana under Operating Permit No. 00167. The sites are located on private land in Lincoln, Flathead, and Sanders Counties

DEQ currently holds a reclamation bond in the amount of $250,000, of which $74,076 is obligated. DEQ is proposing to increase the obligated portion of the bond by $100,027 to $174,103. The increase in the obligated portion of the bond is mostly due to an increase in labor and equipment costs.

The procedure for increasing bonds resulting from a comprehensive bond review is set forth in Section 82-4-338(3), MCA. The company and the public have until January 31, 2020 to comment on the proposed bond increase. DEQ will then issue a final bond determination. The company and any person with an interest that may be adversely affected by DEQ’ s final bond determination may then obtain a contested case hearing before the Board of Environmental Review by filing with DEQ within 30 days of the issuance of the final bond determination a written request for a hearing stating the reason for the request.

A copy of the bond calculation that forms the basis for the proposed bond increase can be obtained by contacting the Department of Environmental Quality.

Comments on the proposed bond or requests for additional information should be sent to: Department of Environmental Quality, Hard Rock Mining Bureau, P. O. Box 200901, 1520 E. Sixth Ave., Helena, MT 59620-0901, or by contacting Herb Rolfes at (406) 444-3841 or hrolfes@mt.gov.
