BLAINE COUNTY—The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks public comment on the Triumph Mine Tailings Piles Site, 2019 Five-Year Review.
DEQ prepared the Five-Year Review for the Triumph Mine Tailings Piles Site because hazardous substances remain on site above levels that permit unlimited use and unrestricted exposure. Five-year reviews evaluate the implementation and performance of the cleanup to determine whether the actions remain protective of human health and the environment.
The Five-Year Review is available on DEQ’s website (download at right) and at DEQ’s State Office in Boise (1410 N. Hilton St.).
Submit written comments by November 8, 2019, at 5 p.m. MST on DEQ’s website or by mail or email to:
