Project To Clean Contaminated Soil Gets County OK

June 30, 2014, 9:37 AM

HOT SPRINGS, SD -

A proposal to clean oil-contaminated soil for use as topsoil or in construction projects is moving forward in Fall River County, despite the objections of some people who worry about whether it's safe.

The Fall River County Commission recently approved a resolution allowing construction and operation of the proposed 5-acre soil farm near Edgemont. The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources has the final say on a permit.

The High Plains Resources company is planning the project. Spokesman Kerry Barker says the contaminated soil currently is being buried at a regional landfill. He says most of it could be cleaned up and reused, saving space in the landfill.

Barker says an independent lab would certify that the cleaned-up soil is safe.
