Methane Producing Landfills

MethaneProducingLandfillsThis data was created on April 30, 2012 to represent known disposal sites in Los Angeles County that may produce and emanate methane gas. The shapefile contains disposal sites within Los Angeles County that once accepted degradable refuse material. Information used to create this data was extracted from a landfill survey performed by County Engineers (Major Waste System Map, 1973) as well as historical records from CalRecycle, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

For more information about the County’s methane mitigation standards.

Please note Cities of Los Angeles and Santa Fe Springs have their own methane mitigation standards and zones.
