Is the landfill built on solid granite?

Are all the earthquake faults included in the EIR? 

Are the barriers that collect toxic waste being monitored regularly?

GOCHA comment letter

There will be a meeting on Monday night with the Glendale Public Works and the County Sanitation representatives to discuss the expansion project for the landfill. At this meeting, we hope to cover the current state of the landfill, the proposed expansions, and their ecological repercussions followed by an open forum.

A representative from Senator Liu's office involved in environmental issues for our district will be at Monday's meeting as well.

The city is proposing an expansion of the landfill and we encourage everyone to attend this meeting to understand and discuss the impact this expansion will have on our canyon and its residents.
