Table Bluff Reservation Illegal Disposal Sites

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
In April 2001 the Table Bluff Reservation requested a multi-agency inspection to determine how to stop and clean up the illegal dumping on the reservation. Staff from the California Integrated Waste Management Board (Board), along with representatives from the Humboldt County LEA and Indian Health Services, assessed the sites and identified approximately 1,400 cubic yards of household waste, 800 cubic yards of metal debris and white goods, 400 tires, 15 autos, household hazardous waste, and other construction debris along Table Bluff Road and on seven other parcels. The Board's remediation contractor will remove and haul the solid waste to an appropriate facility. Metal debris, including appliances, vehicles, and waste tires will be segregated from solid waste and hauled to appropriate recycling facilities. The household hazardous waste will be set aside for proper disposal and/or recycling. Once the debris is removed, signs and access restrictions will be placed to prevent further illegal dumping. After completing the project, the Tribe will provide ongoing enforcement to prevent recurring illegal disposal at the sites.
