Plans to build a controversial waste pit near DeBeque have been cancelled.

Pond Leasing Group LLC has pulled its application for a proposed Waste Water Evaporation Pit two miles outside DeBeque. Residents of DeBeque argued the pit was too close to town and would pose a health hazard.

A representative for Pond Leasing said because of the residents concerns they've temporarily withdrawn the application. They say they plan to look for a new location to build the pond.
