AIMM Technologies schedules meeting for waste site

A local energy support services company has scheduled a public meeting to address concerns about a proposed drilling waste site in Nikiski.

AIMM Technologies, a Texas-based company with a North Kenai office, has submitted a permit to build a monofill designed to hold 15,000 tons per year of drilling waste and 1,000 tons per year of nonhazardous hydrocarbon contaminated soil in Nikiski near the end of Bakers Road. A monofill is a landfill intended only for a single type of waste.

AIMM will host a meeting on Tuesday, July 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Nikiski Community Recreation Center, located at mile 23.4 of the Kenai Spur Highway.

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation is currently considering AIMM's proposal and has extended the deadline for written comments to be submitted.

Written comments will be included in the record if received before 5 p.m. on Aug. 10. Submit written comments to Nathaniel Emery, ADEC, Solid Waste Program, 555 Cordova Street, Anchorage, Alaska 99501; by fax to 269-7600; or email to nathaniel.emery@alaska.gov.
