Document Description
Ongoing development of Phase II at the WCL as currently permitted by the California Integrated Waste Management Board. Phase II covers 100 acres. The WCL, owned by Shasta County, has been operational since 1982. It is permitted as a Class III solid waste disposal site, serving the western portion of Shasta County. The site has been developed in two phases. Phase I was operated from 1982 through 1991, and covers approximately 20 acres. Ponds, access roads, a maintenance building and associated facilities cover about 80 acres. A Final Closure and Postclosure Maintenance Plan for Phase I was prepared for Shasta County in December 1990. The Phase II portion of the landfill is being developed in subphases over a period of 20 to 25 years. Phase II began receiving waste in the summer of 1991. The WCL receives approximately 120,000 tons of solid waste annually.
