When originally approached by CDPHE to help with the recovery efforts, the Town reviewed the waiver thoroughly. Staff then asked that CDPHE limit the waiver to 60 days rather than the duration of the recovery event. While the recovery will take much longer, the Town wanted to have an opportunity early on to review how the debris disposal was going. This means that after 60 days, the Town can re-evaluate whether to continue accepting this debris.
The Town also asked that the waiver include specific terms by which the debris would be contained and covered as it is dropped at the landfill.
