Out Esmeralda Way by Carol Sirnes Mother Nature visits Goldfield Good morning! Another beautiful day to be working in the yards and gardens. This past Thursday, around 1:30 p.m. Mother Nature put on a quick and powerful show of energy in the form of a very tall, noisy, whirling dust- devil full of sand! It was noisy you heard the sound first. When it came spinning down the hill into our neighbor&apos;s yard and was several feet taller than their two-story house! The dust-devil tossed around small items in their yard, then crossed our driveway tossing four big, old rubber tires three feet from their location, then traveled down Lida Road to Franklin Road, overturning a full-size, three-drawer, heavy metal desk, then spinning itself out. All this happened in about two to three minutes, so this writer had no time to grab a camera.

Local residents attending participated in a lively com- ment and question session which was very informative on this issue that affects our whole county. The costs and funding of all this is still being worked on. More on this later. Goldfield Landfill On Thursday, May 8, a Public Input Meeting was held at the Goldfield Community Center on the issue of new require- ments on the way Esmeralda County will have to dispose of its garbage. Commissioner Susan Dudley, along with District Attorney Steve Evenson, conducted the meeting with Eugene Klara from NDEP (Nevada Division of Environmental Pro- tection Agency) as guest speaker. The new requirements" actually began in 1991 and the original manuscript contains 50 pages which Dudley had condensed to three and passed out copies to the audience. Under regulations imposed and enforced by the Environ- mental Protection Agency, Goldfield will be considered a Class Two Site which means: 1. It is comprised of at least one municipal solid waste fill. 2. It accepts less than 20 tons of solid waste per day on average. 3. There's no evidence of contamination of ground water originating from the site. 4. It serves a community that has no other practicable alternative for waste management. 5. It's located in an area which annually receives no more than 25 inches of precipitation. The new regulations state by Oct. 9, 1997, the landfill must be permitted or stop accepting waste. If waste is not being accepted, the landfill must be closed within 180 days. To close a landfill, it must be covered with soil and fenced off. Goldfield is in the permitting process now. The permit application will be complete by May 19, 1997, and a public hearing will be held at the Commissioners Meeting that day. Then it will be submitted to the NDEP for approval. 00e00brat,n, 00997 Years Serving Pahrump! 2nd Lut21e.<t Jarntel insutunce A/lent in the qlnited Stat" Worden's Insurance Agency PHONE QUOTES NOTARY IMMEDIATE ISSUE SR22's MORTGAGE INSURANCE ALL LINES BROKER AUTO- HOMEOWNERS - MOBILE HOMES - RECREATIONAL VEHICLES.
