Justification

On February 13, 2020, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) received a Notice of Violation (Case No. 418905) from the County's Department of Permitting Services (DPS). This Notice of Violation cited a NFPA1-System Restore Violation for Case No. 418905. The Department is currently working through the Northeast Waste Disposal Authority with contractors to complete a design for the fire detection and suppression systems to address the Notice of Violation and the concerns posed by the County's insurance provider (FM Global). Therefore, this project completion is essential to remain DPS compliant, to mitigate frequent fires, and to eliminate health and safety concerns associated with having a deficient fire detection and suppression systems for solid waste operations.
