Utah Proposes Hazardous Waste Rule Changes

On July 10, 2016, the Utah Waste Management and Radiation Control Board approved amendments to R315-261 to be published in the Utah Bulletin and commence a 30-day public comment period.

The proposed amendments, among other things, change the word “variance” to “excluded” in several sections of the rule.

The public comment period started on July 2, 2016 and ended on July 31, 2016.
