I'm seeing a lot of activity up at Mount PCA....

Can anyone tell me the details?

I'm curious as heck!

Thanks

looks like they are building a ski hill to pick up a little extra money during the winter. :D

As the company's environmental engineer, I can directly and accurately respond to the question about 'what's up' at PCA's landfill.

The landfill is permitted to consist of seven cells, three of which have been constructed. The northernmost cell, along Hwy 86, is full and we are in the process of capping it. The capping involves a series of actions including grading the landfilled material to a predetermined final grade, compacting the graded surface, installing a flexible membrane, overtopping the membrane with several layers of sand, and finishing it off with a topsoil layer to support vegetation. Project work is expected to conclude in early November of this year.

The fourth landfill cell will be constructed in 2006.

Based on historic utilization rates, PCA forecasts that all seven landfill cells will be filled by about 2032.

Thanks, John! That is one heckuva steep grade on the north side. I'm always a little freaked out when I see the trucks & tractors driving on it.

Will the other cells be as tall as the one I am seeing from 86? Or can't you determine that as yet.

Sure appreciate the info. Inquiring minds want to know!

I've got an idea. Maybe instead of building that fourth cell, we could throw all that fill into the 17 foot hole they called New Orleans. (I'm sure FEMA would pay for the trucking) Then in 2006 they can start rebuilding on it. Key West is at sea level and the highest and only elevation on the island is the landfill. We always wondered how many of us could camp up there during a storm surge. It was called 'garbage mountain'.
