Why is opposing the project this important to Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter? The proposed 300-acre Gregory Canyon Landfill would be built on the banks of the San Luis Rey River, threatening a major drinking water source for thousands of people. Local agencies, elected officials, environmental groups and Native Americans agree that these essential water supplies must be protected and preserved at all costs.
The County of San Diego is deciding whether to approve a key permit that the landfill needs in order to operate. We need to make sure the County gets the message that placing a garbage dump on the banks of a river makes no sense. The bottom line is that garbage and water just don’t mix.
