Document Description
The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) is proposing a landfill closure project of two properties with historic landfill activities, in compliance with California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) requirements and the California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 27 solid waste regulations, as regulated by Sacramento County environmental management Department (EMD) as the Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) in Sacramento County. The project would include demolition of concrete slab and piers, grading the site for proper drainage, importing soil for the soil cover, constructing a gravel maintenance road, transmission tower maintenance pads and the final soil cover, and developing site drainage improvements and erosion control. Upon completion of landfill closure activities, a post-remediation site monitoring and maintenance plan would be implemented as part of the project to address issues such as site inspections, environmental monitoring, cover maintenance, utility construction, and maintenance of existing and future utilities.
