The North Dakota Health Department and the North Dakota Solid Waste
Management and Recycling Association are hosting workshops to help officials
manage different types of waste after a disaster.
There are seven workshops scheduled statewide. The two closest to this
area are in Lakota at the Community Center, August 15th. There's also one in
Rugby, August 14th at the Community Room in the Pierce County Courthouse.
Environmental Engineer Diana Trussell says flooding, storms, tornadoes,
and other emergencies have generated large amounts of debris and waste that must
be properly disposed. The workshops will help local planners, emergency managers,
business leaders, and city, county, and tribal officials develop a correct disposal plan.
Those workshops are free but pre-registration's required.
