Bale wins 1-year variance
Larry Bale, owner and operator of Rainbow Valley Landfill, has been granted a one-year interim variance from closure by the state Department of Ecology. State regulations had required that the landfill shut down by November 27. Bale had requested a three year variance from minimum functional standards on the grounds that clay at the site was a suitable substitute fro the bottom liner it lacks. According to Bryan Harrison, assistant director of the county Health and Human Services Department, DOE may grant an additional two year variance that would end December 31, 1992.
