The Environmental Sciences Department from the City of San Diego has requested the City Attorney and City Council approval of an agreement that would cost the city nearly $2 million over five years.
The reason: Greenhouse gas emissions coming from land fills.
The requested action would approve an agreement with SCS Engineers for As-Needed Services to meet Greenhouse Gas Regulations for Landfills in an amount not to exceed $1,900,000 over the 5-year term.
The work performed by the SCS Engineers will include developing strategies and plans to assist the City in complying with new State of California, and Federal Climate Change Regulations pertaining to landfills.
According to the Environmental Sciences Department of the City, public health, safety and the environment are at risk if proper measures are not taken to combat these emissions.
