  6. Metallic discards - This item was discussed during the Resolutions Update (IV-A).
  7. West Covina forwarded concern regarding gas monitoring on side slopes. It seems that an operator was reluctant to monitor his side slopes using the excuse that it was unsafe to have his employees walking on these slopes. It was the consensus of the EAC that the operator did not have a leg to stand on and that these probes should be monitored.

VI. Topics

  1. Conformance findings - There was some discussion on problems with "point-on-map" vs. "long description." Dennis & Greg's TAC will develop Conformance Finding Methodology Concept Paper.
  2. Burn dumps, authorities & 2136 problems with State agencies cooperation. (Department of Toxic Substances Control vs. CIWMB) - This issue will be examined at the San Diego conference. Resolution 00-02 was passed. This resolution will be two fold: 1) request a presentation on AB 1102 and 2) ask CalEPA to discuss interagency coordination at the LEA conference.
