Hearing Set For Termination Of Apex Facility's Permit

The state Division of Waste Management will hold a public hearing tonight on a hazardous waste permit for the E-Q facility in Apex that was the site of a fire last fall.

The state has proposed terminating the facility's hazardous waste permit.

A fire at the plant in October prompted city officials to urge thousands of people to evacuate. Weeks of environmental cleanup followed.

EQ was later fined more than 500-thousand dollars for violations of the state's Solid Waste Management Act and Hazardous Waste Management Rules.
