Mixed Waste Landfill

Mixed Waste Landfill

Louis Rose and Jeffrey Wechsler represented a Department of Energy research facility in permitting proceedings before the New Mexico Environment Department on corrective action at its mixed waste landfill.  The proposed corrective action, which had been under study for over a decade, was being challenged by local environmental activists under New Mexico’s Hazardous Waste Act.  Mr. Rose and Mr. Wechsler worked with experts in obtaining the necessary approval over strong opposition.  Mr. Rose and Mr. Wechsler also represented the laboratory in successfully defending the administrative decision before the New Mexico Court of Appeals.  See Citizen Action v. Sandia Corp., 2008-NMCA-031, 143 N.M. 620, 179 P.3d 1228, cert. denied.
