Union Tribune: Plan to expand Miramar landfill gets key city approval

As reported by San Diego Union Tribune on December 5, 2019: While the plan to expand Miramar landfill gets key city approval, permission still needed from water quality regulators, air pollution officials, state waste board. “San Diego took a key step forward Wednesday on its plan to increase the capacity of the Miramar Landfill by allowing waste to pile up 25 feet higher into the air. A city hearing officer approved a permit amendment necessary for the expansion, which would lengthen the life of the dump by eight to 10 years, by increasing its height from 485 feet above sea level to 510 feet above sea level. The vertical expansion is expected to make the city’s main dump more visible to residents in Mira Mesa, Scripps Ranch and University City and to motorists on Interstate 805 and state Route 52.”
