A conservation easement for wetlands at the Hancock County landfill has been accepted by the Hancock Park District. The Courier reports the HPD voted to accept the plan during a Tuesday meeting. The easement is required by the Ohio EPA anytime construction impacts existing wetlands.
Project manager Steve Wilson says the landfill built new wetlands several years ago in anticipation of future projects. A project at the site would impact a small wetland area. The constructed wetland area has to be placed in a conservation easement controlled by a government entity for the project to move forward.
The Hancock County Commissioners are expected to approve the easement next week.
