GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) _ A volunteer committee is in the process of finalizing its report evaluating the environmental and economic effects of a proposed explosives incineration business near Grand Island.
The Grand Island Independent reports that the 12-person committee met Tuesday to discuss the proposal for Heritage Disposal and Storage of Alda to open a munitions incinerator at the former Cornhusker Army Ammunition Plant west of Grand Island.
The panel has been meeting since April and is responsible for evaluating the appropriateness of the site, the proposed facility, technology used, environmental impacts, economic impacts, transportation plans and impacts, regulatory control and enforcement and emergency responses.
The group is scheduled to turn in its final report to Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality Director Jim Macy by October.
