To obtain public comments on the draft exploratory well permit for Waste Management, Inc., who applied on August 15, 2016, for a permit to construct an exploratory well (File No. 0346637-001-UC/1EX, WACS 103030). The project is located at the Springhill Regional Landfill, 4945 Highway 273, Campbellton, Florida 32426, and will consist of one exploratory well to a total depth of 4,100 feet below land surface. The project will determine the feasibility of deep well disposal of non-hazardous landfill leachate generated at the Springhill facility. The exploratory well permit does not allow injection into the well or disposal of leachate. A future Class I injection well application for construction and testing is required before injection and operational testing after the exploratory well phase.
