I'm planning on being in the nw corner of Nevada March 24-31st. I'm interested in going to the High Rocks canyon area including the Upper Canyon. What I would like to know, is what the road conditions might be at this time. If anyone has any info in this regard I would be appreciative. I will be staying close to Cedarville.
The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) issued an operating permit to Recology for the Jungo Road Landfill on February 29, 2012 despite some very valid environmental concerns raised by several people during public comment. This landfill is planned to accept 4000 tons of nonrecycleable waste 5 days a week via train for 95 years. It is over an active aquifer in a seismic zone. No environmental impact study was required.

This fellow traveled through Gerlach and stopped by the Friends office. He talks about his trip in his blog:
Who knows, maybe there is. At any rate, in an effort to keep each of you updated on the Jungo Road Landfill as you pass through these pages, here you go:

Each of us can participate in the NDEP public comment period to influence stopping the Jungo Road Landfill.
Nevada Division of Enivornmental Protection(NDEP)public comment period on Jungo Road started 10/26/11. Origionally,we had until 12/16 5pm to submit written comments. THAT WAS CHANGED ON 12/20. PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JANUARY 30, 2012, 5 PM. More information, including email and snail mail addresses: http://ndep.nv.gov/bwm/docs/ndep_letter_102611.pdf
After months of legal briefs, depositions, and not much going on, activity on the Jungo Road Landfill project is changing as fast as the weather out on the Black Rock.
I'm sure none of you will agree this is poetry; but, at this date, I FINALLY have something to say in terms of the status of the Jungo Road Landfill.
