By Ben Messenger, Waste Mangement World.

Long Beach, California based consulting firm, SCS Engineers, has been awarded two contracts by the City of San Diego to assist with operations, monitoring and maintenance (OM&M) of the Arizona Street and South Chollas Landfill gas collection system and to comply with requirements of Assembly Bill (AB) 32.

The company explained that AB 32 requires California to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and includes specific provisions for landfills.

According to the consultants, it is the first regulatory program in the country to take a comprehensive, long-term approach to addressing climate change.
