Eagle Mountain Landfill Threatens Joshua Tree

by Tom Markiewicz on April 4, 2005

The National Parks Conservation Association has an action alert regarding the Eagle Mountain Landfill. The landfill, proposed by the Mine Reclamation Corporation (a subsidiary of Kaiser Ventures) would be largest garbage dump in the U.S.

Proposed on land that at one time was part of Joshua Tree National Monument, the project would be surrounded on three sides by the national park??s designated wilderness. The landfill would receive 20,000 tons of garbage a day, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for 117 years. Garbage would be hauled to this desert site daily by seven mile-long double-decker trains and 200 trash trucks. The project would include landfill gas flaring equipment, rock crushing and screening equipment, separate rail and truck yards and fueling areas, storage sites for hazardous waste, and settling basins. Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts has agreed to purchase the landfill from Kaiser, once all legal challenges to it are resolved, to dispose of garbage from several southern California counties.

Please visit the site, and if possible, take action to save this valuable climbing resource.

    At this time it sounds like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

    Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot
