The project consists of importing a maximum of 4,000 cubic yards of clean dirt for fill in order to re-establish finished grade at the landfill. Some locations will require fill ranging from one foot up to three feet. In addition, the project includes re-laying of some black header gas piping on the surface of the landfill. The project will also require an amendment to the post-closure maintenance plan and compliance with the recently adopted Revised Waste Discharge Requirements. Maximum area of disturbance will be about 5 acres.
The project involves filling of earth on land that is not envionmentally sensitive, which has settled over the past 20 years, wih material compatible witht he natural features of the site, and is therefore exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
