The South Dakota Waste Facility Initiative, also known as Initiative 1, was on the November 6, 1990 ballot in South Dakota as an initiated state statute, where it was approved. The measure required legislative approval of all permits which authorized the siting, construction or operation of a large-scale solid waste facility.
House Bill 1148, submitted in early 2008, sought an exemption from this measure for the Northern Beef Packers plant in Aberdeen. The beef plant sought to use it's waste water to supply farmers.
