Before granting this permit, the BLM is seeking public opinion on the matter and has made it clear that they will base their decision on the input they receive. Senator Hatch and Govenor Huntsman are certain that if enough Utahns expess their opposition the BLM will likely reject the application by PFS for the permit.
I have taken a moment to send an E-mail to Pam Schuller at the BLM's Salt Lake Field Office to share my views as to why the PFS application for a transfer station should be denied. Among my reasons I listed:
- Proximity of this transfer station to I-80 places one of this state's and this nation's most vital thoroughfares in jeopardy. Thus risking not only health and safety, but economic security as well.
- Proximity to the USAF Utah Test and Training Range raises the level of danger already associated with the transfer station.
