16. LEA Conditions

a. The November 2001 JTD and subsequent approved JTD Amendments shall reflect the
   current operation at this facility. The operator must file amendments to the JTD at least 30
   days prior to making changes in the design and operation from those outlined in the JTD.
   Any significant changes must be filed at least 150 days prior to making the changes. Such
   JTD Amendments or lack thereof may become the basis for changes in the permit or for
   revocation of the permit.

b. The operator shall comply with the adopted Mitigation and Monitoring Plan for Bass Hill
   Landfill as developed during the CEQA process and for the adopted Mitigated Negative
   Declaration for the Bass Hill Landfill permit revision (see attached).

17. End Notes (Clarifications)

a.      No maximum daily tonnage has been determined for this landfill, as it receives only
        waste from Lassen County and the City of Susanville. Tonnage disposed over the past 12
        years has been 32.5 tons per operating day, based on volume estimates and various
        conversion factors. The peak annual daily average was 34.6 tons per day. Peak daily
        tonnage has been on the order of 85 tons per day. However, late in 2001 scales were
        placed at the landfill and almost all material has been weighed since.
               1. For 2002, the peak daily disposal was 133 tons and the peak daily through the
                    gate (including recyclables, and clean fill and ash for cover) was 655 tons. The
                    annual daily average disposal was 54 tons and through the gate was 73 tons.

Board Meeting                                                                           Agenda Item 10
October 15-16, 2003                                                                       Attachment 3

                                                                   Local Facility No:
 Solid Waste Facility Permit
 Bass Hill Landfill                                                SWIS No. 18-AA-0009

                 2. The landfill is also approved to accept up to 35,000 cubic yards per year of
                    non-hazardous wood ash from local cogeneration plants (1988 CEQA). Up to
                    16,000 cubic yards can be utilized as cover material.
                 3. Only Lassen County and City of Susanville wastes are permitted at the landfill
                    (out-of-county waste is prohibited) by Lassen County and LRSWMA codes
                    and as described in the JTD. The landfill can handle any maximum waste that
                    could be generated within the county without any problems.

b.      Hours of operation shall be daylight hours. Specific days and hours that the facility will
        be open to the public are identified in the JTD. The franchise haulers, California State
        Prisons, and other limited commercial haulers have access to the site during all daylight

c.      Maximum and minimum elevations have not been established for this landfill. The 2001
        WDRs do not mention elevations. They state that the landfill is located at "approximately
        4,120 - 4,288 feet above see level. No new trenches will be constructed, so minimum
        elevation is irrelevant. The amended (2003) 2001 JTD shows maximum elevation at
        approximately 4,290 feet.

d.      A maximum traffic limit to the landfill has never been established. However, the state
        highway and the landfill can easily handle all traffic that has and can be generated by the
        City of Susanville and Lassen County. The daily average traffic for 2002 was 77 vehicles
        and the daily peak was 232. Note: the County no longer sponsors "free dump days",
        which had caused problems in the past with an estimated 400 plus vehicles.
