The sediment is being taken to a landfill operated by Waste Control Specialists LLC (WCS). It is a 1,338-acre hazardous and radioactive waste processing and disposal facility west of Andrews, Texas, next to the New Mexico border. There, the waste is deposited into cells buried in the ground (surrounded by clay). The facility is permitted under the Toxic Substances Control Act to accept PCB-containing waste.

Getting rid of the hazard is important; but the public health is the most important thing of all. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
