The City completed the Groundwater and Soil Vapor Monitoring report for 2009. As discussed in this report, monitoring of three groundwater monitoring wells and one deep nested soil vapor monitoring well was discontinued since soil vapor and groundwater quality data collected from 2001 -2009 indicated that there were no impacts to groundwater due to the landfill. The City will reevaluate the landfill conditions annually and resume monitoring if necessary. This report is available in the report/attachment section of this website.
