Parish, DEQ officials to discuss shredded tires issue
AMITE- A plan is being put together on how to handle the millions of pounds of shredded tires at the Tangipahoa Parish landfill, according to an attorney involved in talks with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.
Attorney Beau Brock told the council Monday that he is continuing to meet with DEQ officials.
The parish learned in June that DEQ had issue a compliance order regarding the use of shredded tires on a firing range being built at the landfill. Additionally, DEQ alleged the parish stored an excessive amount of the tire material at the landfill.
The notice included a warning that the parish could be fined thousands of dollars a day for the duration of the alleged violations if the matter is not resolved.
