     Special five-minute presentations are sheduled at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the status of the landfill closure and the results of recent inspections and vinyl chloride sampling.  Exhibits will include the South Coast Air Quality Management District's technical support van with hands-on sampling equipment.  Slide shows will be presented providing an overview of the landfill and groundwater investigations.
