KODIAK, Alaska — A public comment period has begun for a proposal by the city of Kodiak to turn sewer sludge into compost.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror (http://is.gd/SduHvq) reports the city's permit application has been submitted to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, which is proposing to issue the permit.
The public may comment to the DEC's solid waste program by 5 p.m. Jan. 20.
The location for the permit is borough property that would be transferred to the city if the permit is issued.
The city has a contract with Quayana Development Corp., which is doing a smaller-scale compost program at the landfill.
