The Department of Natural Resources is taking comments on proposed permit modifications at the old Vickers plant at 2800 W. 10th, according to an agency news release.
The permit modifications were raised during an appeal of the Missouri Hazardous Waste Management facility Part I permit, the news release said. Vickers produced piston and gear hydraulic pumps, motors, hydrostatic transmissions and power steering boosters for industrial and agricultural uses from 1952 to 1987, the release said.
Documents about the proposed modifications are available for review at the Joplin Public Library.
Written comments should be sent by June 29 to: Richard A. Nussbaum, P.E., R.G. Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Hazardous Waste Program, P.O. Box 176, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176
