ANOTHER MASSIVE ($440K) FAIL BY RECOLOGY (UPDATED BELOW)

We will see if this fine sticks or is amended somehow. You can read all about it here.

UPDATE: Seems as though all engineering plans don’t go as expected. It would be interesting to know if Recology used the same engineering firm at the Yuba Sutter Landfill as they did for Jungo. A more thorough explanation of the situation may be found here.

Drainage leaving the landfill enters the Yuba River, which then flows downstream into the Feather River, the Sacramento River and the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Along the way, those waters serve as a drinking water supply to more than a million residents of the greater Sacramento region, as irrigation water for farms and as habitat for protected fish species, including salmon.

In the meantime, the picture below is what the proposed Jungo site looks like after a decent rainfall.
