Army Corps seeking public comments on Cortina Rancheria landfill

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking public comments on a landfill proposed by the Cortina Band of Wintun Indians of California.

The tribe plans to build a landfill on a 640-acre site on the reservation. The tribe's partner is Earthworks, a Canadian company.

A group called Colusa Citizens for Safe Water opposes the project. Residents say the landfill will pollute drinking water.

The comment period closes on Friday.
