Case Study

Landfill Expansion

  • Location: Portrero Hills, CA
  • Species: California Tiger Salamanders (Ambystoma californiense)
  • Fence: AMX T30 (Free Standing)

We installed a permanent exclusion fence for Waste Connections to prevent California Tiger Salamanders from re-entering an area that was designated to be used as an extension to an existing landfill. The previous fencing had deteriorated and was considered redundant so the new low-profile Animex will ensure that the salamanders are kept off of the site during the new expansion.
