Document Title
Highway 59 Landfill Valley Fill Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Merced County 2030 General Plan land use designation is Agricultural. Existing zoning is A-1
Document Description
The project involves relocation of certain currently permitted onsite uses and reconfiguration of the disposal area to accommodate an increase in the maximum disposal elevation to 360 feet above mean sea level within a portion of the existing landfill. The project would allow continued operation of the existing landfill for an additional 14 to 26 years within the existing permitted facility boundary. The proposed project involves the modification of the previously approved Highway 59 Landfill Expansion project, which was analyzed in the 1996 Highway 59 Landfill Expansion Project EIR. As part of the implementation of the proposed project, MCRWMA would apply for and obtain an amendment to its existing solid waste facility permit.
