A. A. On January 27, 2006, the Regional Board Executive Officer issued Cleanup and Abatement Order No. R9-2006-0016 (CAO) to the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to address deficiencies in the landfill liner system at the Las Pulgas Landfill in Camp Pendleton. The deficiencies violate the existing Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR Order 2000-54) for the Las Pulgas Landfill. The CAO directs the USMC to correct all construction deficiencies in the existing Phase 1 waste management unit (Unit). By December 1, 2006, the USMC must submit a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) to identify and correct all the deficiencies or clean close the existing Phase 1 Unit in compliance with California Code of Regulations, Title 27. The Regional Board has also prepared a Technical Staff Report for Order R9-2006-0016. The technical staff report provides the technical and regulatory support for the findings and directives of Order R9-2006-0016, and the report is available for public review. (John Odermatt)
