Councilmember Huizar wrote a letter to the City of Glendale in response to the proposed landfill gas power plant at the Scholl Canyon dump in Eagle Rock.
The comments raised concerns about the power plant, its four 40' high smokestacks, the daily release of 900K pounds of carbon monoxide, and potential impacts to environmental quality and emergency response.
The only active entrance to the site is through Eagle Rock. This access point is adjacent to homes, schools, a childcare facility, a major City park, and historic cultural monuments – all in the City of Los Angeles. As such, City stakeholders bear a significant burden from the operation of the landfill.
Councilmember Huizar demanded a more comprehensive and inclusive analysis through a full Environmental Impact Report.
