Legislators seek environmental study on trash burner downtown

Fourteen Minneapolis legislators are not convinced that Hennepin County has explored environmental alternatives in their letter sent Friday, according to MinnPost.

The garbage burner has supplied not enough information in the past, and legislators understand that an EIS will detail the consequences of large projects, County Commissioner told Star Tribune.

An EIS is the most expensive environmental study that can be done, but would finally allow the public and concerned people to have a long conversation on the issue, Star Tribune said.

The plant has requested to operate at capacity, which would add as much as 200 tons daily to the total garbage burner downtown, Star Tribune said.
