In January 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency ordered a cleanup at Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill. Civil Beat requested documents generated for the EPA pursuant to that order, and will be publishing them, raw and unedited, in real time.

From the Jan. 31 Waste Management daily progress report:

Workers continue to investigate the liner in Cell E6, and expect an assessment to be complete by Saturday, Feb. 5. Crews also continue constructing the stormwater diversion channel. There is more water to be pumped from the surface of the cell, and contractors pumped some 274,000 gallons from the sedimentation basin over the weekend.
