In Q4 2017, CCL received no complaints for litter, noise, or fugitive dust. However, CCL did receive 11 odor complaints in Q4. None of these complaints resulted in a Notice of Violation by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) or any other agency. For the majority of odor complaints, the odors were transient and fleeting, and had dissipated by the time staff from CCL could visit the location of the complaint, even when they were able to conduct an odor survey within 15 to 30 minutes of the complaint. In those cases where the odor was present during the odor survey and identifiable as to source, CCL took direct action to reduce or eliminate the source of odor:
- On October 13, 2017, CCL received an odor complaint, verified the odor as the result of horizontal gas collector installation, and suspended gas well placement until meteorological conditions changed and the potential for offsite odors was eliminated.
- On December 26, 2017, CCL received an odor complaint, verified the odor as the result of waste being placed, and adjusted ridgeline fan placement and direction of deodorizer from the perimeter misting system.
