this is our cache creek landfill right now we're looking at the annex addition to our cache creek landfill I'm touching right now the high-density polyethylene liner that is at the bottom of this annex throughout the entire 60,000 square meters below that is a geosynthetic clay liner that the combination of that Plus this high-density polyethylene liner is what we call a compost liner above that we have a sand silt protective layer that
00:35
protects the liner from being damaged and if we look down into the bowl there where the heavy equipment is now constructing the drainage blanket layer on top of this sand so we put a geotextile cover then we put a crushed rock which allows the leachate to move through it and then on top of that we put a pit run which protects that crushed rock from getting clogged from some of the heavier particles that are in the municipal solid waste and at the very center of this bowl at the very lowest point we have a pipe which
01:07
collects the leachate that takes it to a sump for us to capture and reapply to the landfill you see this compass aligner system below us the sand cell protective cover and the drainage blanket above it by the time we're finished constructing all that it'll be almost a meter high but where my hand is here so it's a very comprehensive engineered system that we have to protect from any leachate escaping from the landfill if you look around the area I mean this is a very dry and arid
01:36
climate in Cache Creek and landfill is located in these types of climates produce very little leachate if we compare for example a landfill of this size in a wet environment it would produce as much leachate in a day as we would in the arid environment in an entire year the establishment of the landfill has been the single greatest factor in the sustainability of the village Akash Creek in the surrounding area the
02:12
hundred and twenty jobs that it creates provides employment for our people and they're good well-paid Union rate jobs which afford the incumbents in those jobs the opportunity to buy houses have children populate the school all the major factors that really create a sense of community are enhanced by virtue of the fact that we have the industry here in Cache Creek the landfill gives us the
02:44
opportunity for our community to grow I see jobs for our young people in the future I see you know regular paychecks I found throughout my my career is that if you have people working their self-esteem levels go way up it makes us part of the communities it makes us part of ashcroft and Cache Creek communities because they start seeing the people as community members rather than you know these First Nations people off these reserves also in the part of the community and that's really
03:15
what we're trying to get done here we're totally supportive but because we're on a planning group of the landfill and economically it's it's a win-win for my van members me as chief and my people by the bond part band will not support this if it was environmentally unsafe this landfill means that there's a future for the community that there's some sustainability here because you can't
03:45
have community without jobs and the jobs that the landfill represent in the community is what sustains the village Akash Creek in the surrounding area
