Type: Notice
Date: 2010-10-04
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
On May 27, 2010, we advised the public that the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service prepared an environmental assessment and a finding of no significant impact relative to a request to allow the interstate movement of municipal solid waste from Hawaii to a landfill in the State of Washington. Because we have been made aware of additional information that was not previously provided and we have an interest in examining that information to determine the potential impacts, we are withdrawing the finding of no significant impact effective immediately in order to reevaluate the potential for environmental impacts that may be associated with this action.
