Ok guys, calm down, the big fence is to keep garbage (papers, cups, plastic, etc) that escapes the primary containment area from blowing out onto the
freeway and causing a crash on I-5.
If you take note of the fence, it is tall and lanky like one that might surround a gold course driving range. It is clearly *not* a high security
perimeter fence. The fence is so tall due to the geographic location of the plant agaist the hills and the attendant high winds that are often present
As for barbed/razor wire, I will have look next time I go by, but, I do not recall any but could be mistaken.
The facility as previously outlined in earlier postings burns waste and generates electricity which is sold to PG&E. More information on that
As for the Crows Landing Airfield, the last time I was out there several months ago, there was no significant activity evident to me. The only sign of
life was the old fire station had a maintainence truck parked in one of the bays and the station appeared to be in use as an office. No longer a fire
station. The rest of the buildings, which are not many, are boarded up. And there were a couple of old beater trailers on site but they were old in
I think the truck was county but cannot recall for sure but it was not a NASA or fed vehicle as I recall. There has not been any NASA activity there
since the early 90's. The last major thing to occur near there- aviation-wise was the San Francisco PD helicopter crashing not far away a couple of
years ago. God rest thier souls.
The airfield is now secure so I have not been out there in months.
Best to all,
