Just went by it traveling north, and the fence ends abruptly at the north end. I looked back and saw no side fence at all. Is Godzilla an the aqueduct??

Why does the fence for a dump need to be more secure than the fence protecting our country? I mean it looks like nothing at all is getting in or out. I think the government should actually take notes and put that up on our borders.

It is built to keep people in, not out.... that's the disturbing part!

I have seen this about 10 times. I don't know what it is - but once I saw an enormous stag / deer/ thing standing in front of the huge 40-foot fence. I was driving northbound on the 5.
At first I thought the stag was a dummy - like used for baiting weirdos to shoot or I dunno, but then it turned it's head. It was bigger than any stag alive - I was actually afraid, even driving 65 miles/hour on the opposite side of a 10 lane freeway.- it was enormous - and out in the middle of nowhere with no live grass or shrubs to eat. it was summer- everything was dead - even the cows in the feedlots. I've hunted caribou in Alaska, I've seen big animals with own two eyes - this was bigger than any normal deer/caribou alive today. There is an extinct Irish deer, which was alive during the Pleistocene - and humans killed it off. It was on par or larger than that ancient deer. Just saying, it was one of the weirdest, maybe the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my life - and that huge fence is pretty weird too.

Just drove by and took a picture of a large hairy creature chasing a small green thing with large eyes. Two men in blue coveralls chasing them both. I took a picture but it's too blurry. I'm going back there to find out more .

How about this: get oe of those helicopter drones from one of the local hobyy shops (Costco sells them too). Put a Go-Pro video camera on it and fly it through the facility. If they shoot it dwn, then you know something fishy is happening inside. Go with a buddy and have him sit in a car, ready to take off once your drone gets back and hightail it out. Maybe launch it a couple hills away so youhave time to get away. As backup, have second setof friends with a camera videotaping anyone rushing out of the complex who are intent on stopping you.

We walked up to it and it is actually an optical illusion. The only thing there is a one story building where they make the super secret ingredients for the Twinkie

Uncle Roy used to work there in the late 90s. Before he died last year he told me that the grey structure you see from the highway actually is the ventilation system for the 30,000 square-foot underground facility. The facility lies nearly 100 feet below the surface. Now he wouldn't say clearly what the facility's purpose was for my safety. But he alluded to experimental laser testing. The fence that you see is there to keep wildlife and joggers out so they don't get zapped by the lasers that shoot towards planet space.

I just went by and saw them burning Mexicans to make electricity. Now I know why the govt is letting in all the illegal aliens. Very green idea.

If there is such a thing as Soylent Green, I think it's made there. Remember, "Soylent Green is made from people!"

There is something more than a incinerator at this place...I'm not saying anything bout UFO's but If anybody's been in a Federal building you will experience less security than this "Covanta waste Incinerator site"..That said ..there is also an abandoned NASA runway directly east from here...to the west however it 100's of square miles of federal property with no trespassing signs everywhere...atypical for was facility particularly because the "waste facility" is on county (Stanislaus) property..If you drive up to the site you get immediately stopped by the gate by heavy armed security.
