The Area in Question

Hard waste deposited in reserve 24198 – 1997. Looking north along east side of pit. The gap to putrescibles in the top of frame was all filled in with the same hard waste then eventually covered with crushed limestone. Any failure of the septage ponds will flow through this waste on its way to the ocean. Photos reproduced with permission of Ron Glasson

Why this is a bad idea!
