Trash it

Published Dec. 23, 2007 (Opinion)
To protect the karst-sensitive and high water recharge areas within Marion County, an ordinance was enacted in 2001 prohibiting any more Class I, II, or III landfills being built or expanded after Jan. 1, 2002. No private, no commercial, no governmental, no more landfills in Marion County, period!

Landfill liners leak at the rate of one leak per 1,000 feet of seam, and this type of leak is not always picked up by the groundwater monitoring wells. So, in addition to the continuing sight, sound and smell associated with another landfill cell, there is the continuing risk to the Silver Springs water supply.
