West Virginia House Bill (HB) 4411 was passed by a special session of the WV legislature on Friday, March 14. The bill removes caps from landfills on receiving drill cuttings. However, it also establishes in law strict requirements that landfills accepting drill cuttings (over a specified volume) must construct a special cell to store the cuttings, must monitor the leachate coming from the landfill, and must install radiation detectors at the landfill. The bill now goes to WV Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin who is expected to sign it.
