Draft Environmental Impact Report

The Draft Environmental Impact Report is a blueprint of the proposed expansion project. In it, the petitioner (Chiquita Canyon Landfill) includes reports from their engineers, and how they anticipate the project will affect the community and environment. Topics covered include include effects on: air quality, groundwater pollution, real estate value, traffic, public safety, geology, cultural heritage, etc.

Because the document is lengthy and very technical, it helps to look at the executive summary, which gives basic information such as expansion maps and summaries from their technical engineers.

Due to SEQA laws, the the agency who is being petition is required to give the public 30 days to read the DEIR and comment on their concerns regarding details of the DEIR. By law, the petitioner is required to address or mitigation each comment submitted by the public. This is a very important process to help lessen, mitigate, or prevent the Conditional Use Permit from being approved.

If you are interested in being part of this process, please be specific with your comments and send them to Iris Chi at ">ichi@planning.lacounty.gov

  1. Asthma, I became convinced that the dump had something to do with it. Every time I left Val Verde for any extended length of time my symptoms would ease. I always thought it was fumes or gas being released that caused my asthma and lack of energy. This could be the case, however, I am now leaning toward a more insidious cause that is rarely talked about, often misdiagnosed as asthma and/or emphysema, and occurs in the area dust/dirt for sure. I am talking about Valley Fever. https://www.vfce.arizona.edu/valleyfever… has anybody considered that everyday the dump could be stirring up this toxic spore and disseminating it throughout the area? It is a very real possibility and I suggest that anyone suffering symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue or other “mystery” illnesses to look into it. A Antelope Valley teen died from this a year ago and the SCV is noted as a hotspot in the linked news report:
    http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2012/09/18/only-on-cbs2-expert-sheds-light-on-valley-fever-after-it-kills-antelope-valley-teen/ This is a REAL problem that is potentially deadly. The spores travel on dust in the wind. I wish for the landfill ground to be tested for Valley Fever as well as citizens of Val Verde who have any of the symptoms.
