The state of California has contributed $1.2 million for the city of West Covina to shut down the toxic waste portion of the BKK Landfill. The funding allows crews to begin covering the landfill with nearly 8 feet of dirt, a project that should have been paid for by the owners of BKK. Those owners have said they do not have the funds. The state's contribution will cover about 5 feet worth of soil; the city will need to find money for the remainder.
