WM Staff Discover Rare California Gnatcatchers in El Sobrante Landfill Wildlife Preserve
El Sobrante Landfill staff were pleasantly surprised in May 2012 to find three new baby California Gnatcatchers born on its Wildlife Preserve, a 688 acres protected open space habitat. The Wildlife Preserve's habitat conservation plan has a goal of reaching 11 pairs of California Gnatcatchers. The discovery is a huge accomplishment considering that three years ago, two-thirds of the land burned due to an illegal trespasser. At that time, seven pairs were lost. The California Gnatcatcher was Federally-listed as a threatened species in the 90's. The site biologist, Cindy Daverin, gives a closer look at their behavior.

Envision the Possibilities: Puente Hills Landfill Park Master Plan
http://www.puentehillslandfillpark.org/ How do you transform America’s former largest land­fill into an inspiring site for reflection and recreation? How do you design for a landscape projected to shift and settle 125 feet over the course of the next several decades? The County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation, with Withers & Sandgren Landscape Architecture + Planning, are leading an expert team in a 1-1/2 year master plan to envision a new life for this imposing 500 foot-tall mountain built over 60+ years from 130 million tons of our collective waste. The project entails planning for the conversion of approximately 115 acres within the 1,365-acre former landfill site and will include the preparation of an environmental impact report (EIR) to analyze the potential impacts of this change. The project will also include an extensive community outreach process that balances community desires for recreation, trails and open space, with critical wildlife corridor needs across the Puente-Chino Hills, and other identified needs such as ongoing operations and maintenance. Amidst challenges such as land settlement and methane gas collection pipelines, the Master Plan will potentially weave together interpretation, trail connections, recreation and habitat restoration."Puente Hills Landfill Park" is used as a working title for identification during this Master Planning process. ------------------- The park name will be determined through the planning process.

Safe landfill capping with Bentofix® - Grimsby England
Beneficial reuse: from landfill to a country park The seaside town of Grimsby is located in the northeast of England, situated on the south side of the Humber Estuary. Grimsby is famous for its fishing heritage and remains today an important fish and food processing centre. The town also boasts a thriving chemical and gas power industry. In 2013, the North East Lincolnshire Planning Committee approved the application by landowner Millennium Park to decontaminate a 23.7-hectare former landfill site and convert it into an exemplary, beneficial reuse project: a country park. The development, located in the centrally located West Marsh area of Grimsby, promised 23 hectares of parks, wild life zones, fountains, children’s play areas, and open spaces. Remediation work started in November 2014. NAUE worked closely with design engineers Grontmij in advising an optimum Bentofix® GCL capping system. Due to the end use being a recreational area, it was important to make sure the capping system was robust, flexible, self-sealing and a proven gas barrier and low permeability barrier to infiltration of water. Also, the beneficial reuse of the site and the enhanced protections that came with that approval meant that multiple types of GCLs were specified. Each type was selected according to the specific zone’s design and functional needs. For 6.5 hectares of the site, Bentofix® BFG 5000 was installed to secure the land on which the main recreation facilities would be constructed. All Bentofix® products contain high-swelling, high-quality powdered sodium bentonite and are manufactured with needlepunch and Thermal Lock (enhanced shear strength) technologies; but Bentofix® BFG 5000 was specified for the recreational facility area for its complete impregnation of bentonite in the nonwoven geotextile, its self-sealing overlaps to ensure a continuous barrier and its independent BBA Certification for waterproofing and methane/ radon barrier performance under confining pressure. For 16.5 hectares, Bentofix® X2 NSP 4900, was used as the low permeability capping system. Bentofix® X, which has a special polymeric coating installed facing up, was specifically chosen for this application due its heightened performance against desiccation (which enables a hydrated, restoration soil depth of 450mm), its protection against ion exchange, its root barrier performance and its higher gas barrier characteristics. An additional benefit of the polymeric coating is that it is extruded onto the GCL, so there is no risk of the critical polymer layer delaminating (Some products use glues instead of extrusion). This was an important advantage for the Grimsby site. It offered extra assurance for the environmental protection plan. Selecting different types of GCLs for specific roles within a design, rather than simply selecting a single barrier, may seem costly because each product is used in a lower volume; but, it isn’t really. Specifying based on unique needs at particular project zones ultimately makes for a more precise, cost-efficient project up front and in the long term, as each material performs exactly to the barrier needs where it has been installed. This takes place of other measures that may be needed to make a less-specific barrier system work where it is not ideal. Also, NAUE’s strength in logistics and client communication yielded savings, as the rolls of Bentofix® were delivered to the site on time, per the main contractor Bay Construct’s delivery specifications. The project works were able to unfold as planned and site costs were controlled. This made all parties involved in the construction and installation phase happy. Further adding value to the project, NAUE provided quality assurance support, installation details, tie-in details, and subgrade cover soil compatibility testing. All materials were independently tested by a third-party laboratory in accordance with the requirements of the government regulator in England, the Environment Agency. The Bentofix® GCL capping work has been fully completed, and as this issue of NAUE News goes to press, the country park continues to take shape in Grimsby’s city centre.

Landfill Becomes Nature Park
A landfill becomes a nature park. The Mucking Landfill in Essex, England was one of the largest trash dumps in Europe. For 50 years, trash from London was shipped down the River Thames to the 845 acre Essex landfill, creating a layer of waste 80 feet deep. Now, after a project costing around 3.8 million dollars, part of it has been turned into a nature preserve for rare wild flowers and wildlife. The location has been turned into a nature park, where all kinds of wildlife can be found thanks to the Essex Wildlife Trust. Several species of birds have been observed in the area, along with harvest mice, newts, orchids and adders to name a few. Sir David Attenborough, president emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts said that the "project is visionary and one of many remarkable projects led by The Wildlife Trusts around the UK that bring benefits to the natural world and communities." Another landfill in Grimsby, England is going to be transformed into a 17 acre park and the location of 250 prospective homes. The site in Grimsby has not been used for anything since the 1970s.

Garraf Waste Landfill Landscape Restoration
The Vall d’en Joan waste dump opened in 1974 in a valley in the limestone massif of El Garraf, Barcelona, in the Natural Park of the same name. The restoration project defines a pattern of topographic configuration with terraces, side slopes, drainage system of internal fluids (separated of the external drainage net), biogas extraction net, pathways and plantation by phases. The whole restoration project goal is that Parc Del Garraf absorbs the dump by using the local forest tissue and supporting the establishment of primary ecosystems and its development and succession which thought the time will turn to adapted situations to the site environment. The plantation process is being done through strong local species with a few pouring demand and already adapted to the place environment. The vegetal structure planned with different local sorts of shrubs (such as bardissa, brolla or mediterranian màquia) and trees organizes the plantation project. Infilling began at the lowest point. Shrubs and trees were eliminated, the site was waterproofed with clayey soils, a drainage system was installed for the leachate and work began on the superposition of layers of waste matter, alternating with shallow layers of earth. As the bottom of the valley was filled in, the waterproofing was extended. The landfill now occupies 70 hectares with a depth of waste matter of over 80 meters at some points. At the start of the restoration project, a layer of earth covered the latest deposit of refuse. A large concrete ditch separates virgin land from the operational waste dump and channels drain runoff from the mountainside. Semi-clean waters and runoff water from the working area accumulate in a reservoir, where they are treated. The restoration process began at the lowest levels while the waste tip is still in use higher up. A new and completely different system was superposed on the existing one, and the two will coexist until the dump is closed. Restoration will only be complete three years after closure. Waste Deposit Restoration seeks to return the public use of this area. The proximity to urban areas, access and parking facilities make of it, a well linked side as well as a new entrance or “gate” to Parc Natural del Garraf which is also in connection with the long distance 92-GR pathway.

Landfill transformed into model park
The Hiriya Recycling Park is a testament to Israel's out-of-the-box approach to greening the country. Just outside of Tel Aviv, a half-mile long landfill was once an environmental nightmare. Basically a huge mountain of smelly garbage, Hiriya wasn't the sort of place you'd want to live near, let alone visit. But today the site is used as an environmental educational facility, a natural bio-gas supplier and a transfer station. What's more, it will soon be the site of a family-oriented recycling park. Doron Sapir, head of the site, explains that 84 wells were drilled into the dump to capture the methane gas produced by the rubbish. The gas is delivered by pipe to a textile plant about four kilometers from the dump, powering the entire operation. "We are an eco-ecological facility," says Sapir, showing how all materials are separated and recycled. "What is unique here is that all over the world they are separating the waste in dry facilities, [using a] dry process. These Israeli guys thought the other way around: Not only are they not drying the waste, they are putting it into water!" Any day of the week, you can see schoolchildren of all ages come to visit and learn all about how to reduce, reuse and recycle.

A Brief Tour of Arpley Landfill
This short tour of Arpley Landfill in Warrington was lead by the Ranger at the Moore Nature Reserve. The Landfill is 400 acres in size, and the Company (FCC) funds the 180 acre nature reserve. The vast array of pipes on site channel methane gas to an electricity plant, where it apparently generates enough power for over 20,000 homes. When the landfill is finally capped and hermetically sealed, the entire site will become a Nature Reserve. Located almost in the center of Warrington, this eyesore and nuisance will one day be transformed into an asset for all.

Seguin City Leaders Oppose Landfill -- Grace White
Seguin neighbors are worried a proposed landfill could spoil their city. Tonight,  they weighed in on the plans at city hall.It's a message you can't miss. If you drive down FM 1150 near Dix Road in Guadalupe County, these signs are posted on fences and properties near the site of the proposed Post Oak Landfill. "Our water that's what we are worried about," said Fran Cheshire, a neighbor "E.P.A. says it's not if they leak, it's when they leak, all of them will leak," said Richard Mergele, another neighbor. "All these water companies they've got too much money invested in water companies and water districts to take a chance on polluting the aquifer."The site is 12 miles east of the city, just south of I-10. The company proposing the landfill,  "Post Oak Clean Green," declined an interview. On their website, they say there are plans to build a state of the art recycling center, a composting facility, an environmental research center and a wildlife management facility."What council did here tonight is approve a resolution that the city of Seguin opposes the formation of the landfill," said Betty Ann Matthies, Mayor of Seguin. But, the real power lies with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Right now, the agency is reviewing project plans and would have to issue a permit before the Post Oak Landfill can operate.Posted by: Grace WhiteFollow Grace on Twitter @Grace__White and on Facebook

Discharge from Marjol Battery Hazardous Waste Landfill's sediment basin to Sulfur Creek, then to the Lackawanna River 03/04/2011 Enough is enough with the misinformation you have been issuing to the citizens of Throop with this project. You would have assumed in this situation once would be bad enough and that an implementation of corrective measure would have been ...done to make sure this did not happen again. I have been informed that the best of resources were available for this project, yet water and contaminants are discharged from the Sediment Basin above the Performance Standard. In a professional setting a backup plan would have been initiated from the beginning to throughout any reoccurrences of any major problem, such as an overflow, apparently you people think either so little of the people of Throop or so little of the environment to allow such shotty workmanship to be done. You are very creative in issuing reports and pictures of this site to make it look like you are in accordance with government regulations. I have pictures and videos of these events and it shows a much different story of what exactly I feel is not in accordance with specifications set forth for a project like this All such pictures and videos show your garbage entering the Lackawanna River, a river that the government spends a lot of taxpayers' money to clean from all the unregulated policies of past corporations, like mining which polluted the river. Many states realize the past mistakes and are doing much to clean the waterways like the Lackawanna River to be enjoyed by people and wildlife together. Just alone in Archbald they have a three mile stretch for trophy trout fishing and walking and jogging trails were put in to enjoy the beauty of the river As the late Manny Gordon said " ENJOY ENJOY. " To be so irresponsible and negligent to allow any garbage to enter Sulfur Creek which empties in the Lackawanna River which makes its way all the way down to the Chesapeake Bay is mindboggling since it is taxpayers money and you people are suppose to be professional in this area. For you all to have the expertise on this project, and to allow this to happen at all. On top of this lead is leaving the site by Air and yes by water, what a plan. Step up to the plate and do the job for which you were hired to do, the right way.

Cedar Cove Land for Tigers
GoFundMe Campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/landfortigers Website: http:www.saveoursiberians.org Facebok: https://www.facebook.com/CedarCoveParkStaff/ Cedar Cove is a non-profit Conservatory and Education Center located just South of Kansas City in Louisburg, Kansas. The park was open to the public in 2000 by William Pottorff with the goal of preserving endangered species from extinction while educating about the impending threats humans pose in the forms of illegal poaching and trade, environmental impact and the wholesale destruction of habitats and ecosystems for commercial trade. From its inception, the park has been home to dozens of animals taken in as rescues from private ownership or the exotic trade as well as re-homes of animals from other facilities or abandoned wildlife run afoul of human activity. Sitting on 11 acres donated by friend, neighbor and conservationist George Criswell, volunteer effort has developed and expanded the habitats to the fullest use of the land available to accommodate the growing number of animals that continue to come to Cedar Cove as their fate both in the wild and in captivity presses closer. William Pottorff passed away in 2012 and trusted his legacy to Steve Klein and Bettie Auch who continue to expand upon William's vision to provide first-class veterinary care and enrichment for the animals as well as a leading-edge educational curriculum engaging preschoolers, students and seniors alike with a message of hope and empowerment. Bettie and Steve manage the operations with a diverse group of educated, conservation minded individuals with a passion for big cats and other predators. Steve left Kansas City in 2012 and took up residence on the property to continue Williams vigil. Cedar Cove's volunteers are one-of-a-kind individuals who prioritize their life decisions around the care of Cedar Cove and the animals. Operations run year-round and include educational outreach programs, group and private tours, and participation in various recycling programs for expired meat, including Wal-Mart, that diverts consumer waste away from landfills and into the many ready mouths at Cedar Cove. Now in its 16th year, Cedar Cove has the opportunity to purhcase an additional 130 acres of undeveloped property adjacent to the existing grounds. In addition to providing the opportunity to care for more animals in need with greatly expanded habitats, future plans call for the creation of a sustainable aquaponic greenhouse and classroom, wildlife rehabillitation center, nature trail, observatory and more, all set within the serenity of lands systematically re-wilded to a living forrest. Projected trends of habitat and species loss are making conservation awareness and education more important than ever, and it is these very projects that showcase the diversity of Kansas City and bring positive change to entire communities. Cedar Cove has seen a sharp rise in attendance not just with repeat visitors, but with groups coming from out of state, even out of country, bringing revenue to local communities and taking with them an awareness that lasts a lifetime. We need your help now to raise $80,000 by July 1st, 2017 to secure the available 129 acres and the future growth of this conservatory and it’s educational message. Please consider a gift to Cedar Cove to ensure these beautiful and important animals are still with us for you children and their great-grandchildren to appreciate and enjoy. Your help in supporting this endeavor will create a wonderful legacy of hope and inspiration that will end

California's Water & Radioactive Waste - CHOICEPOINT
CHOICEPOINT - California's Water & Radioactive Waste https://youtu.be/nvhazAzcTYQ In 1989, a small group of Californians – including EON Co-Director Mary Beth Brangan - began a movement to stop a planned nuclear waste dump at Ward Valley in the Mojave Desert near the Colorado River. It would have endangered the water supply of Arizona, Southern California and Northern Mexico. Considered by many a hopeless cause, the movement grew to include scientists, environmentalists and the regions’ Native American tribes. After a ten-year battle, in 1999, a judge’s ruling brought an end to the planned dump. This film - produced in 1992 & re-mastered from an archival copy - tells the story of that successful movement’s beginning.
