reduction of GHG emissions (approximately 4.5 percent), but that reduction would not reduce GHG emissions to the degree necessary (a 28- to 31-percent reduction) to achieve a less-than-significant environmental effect, as indicated by Table 4.F-3. Implementation of additional emissions reduction strategies such as those identified in Table 4.F-4 above could further reduce the impact of GHG emissions. However, because it is unclear to what extent such measures could feasibly be implemented and would reduce GHG emissions to levels below the threshold of significance, the impact of GHG emissions from the CPP and CPP-V scenarios would remain significant unavoidable.

Landfill. Non-engineered fill material incudes soils, concrete, bricks, tires, steel, and wood. The soil types range from sandy clay to gravel with sand and range in thickness from 6 to 40 feet. The majority of fill was composed of silty clay and concrete matrix. A clean soil layer approximately ten feet thick overlies the waste. The landfill was used for the disposal of solid wastes composed principally of domestic, industrial and shipyard waste, sewage, and rubble (Geosyntec, 2012c). Thickness ranges from 20 to 35 feet.

The eastern half of the Project Site north of the lagoon was contaminated from 1932 to 1967, when this area was operated as
the Brisbane Landfill a landfill.
