Is the waste visible?

Waste is covered nightly with either six inches of dirt or an alternate daily cover which is approved per the Engineering Development and Operation Plan (EDOP). The alternate daily cover is a bentonite clay spray that is applied daily in the evenings. Weekly an additional six inches of soil is added. This cover creates a fire break and is an odor suppressant. When applied the cover takes the shape of the compacted refuse.
