there is a landfill currently being purposed (final EIS approved by BIA).Farm and water organizations and Sierra Club, County supervisors, state and federal legislators oppose it, but the developers are agressively pushing it. To be located in steep foothills over a watershed that feeds surface water and ground water, has 2 seismic faults and unstable soil. Developers are Cortina Integrated Waste Management, Inc,(subsidiary of Earthworks Industries of Canada) and Cortina Landfill Co.(subsidiary of North
Bay Corp of Sonoma County which is one of the Ratto Group of Companies. It is an environmental problematic project in a pristine foothill area.
