The Bingham Facilities, located in rural Orange County, is a research facility that hopes to understand diseases such as muscular dystrophy and hemophilia. However, the waste management plans have affected those families that live around this facility. The wells and floodplains around the facility, which are integral to the waste management plans, have been over-used. Surveyor tags placed on Cliff Leath's land during the surveying process of the facility. "I am not opposed to the research being conducted at the facilities-- but I am concerned about how their [The University] management of these facilities affects the animals there and the community around it." "It is not just their university, it is part of their community-- so it matters if they waste money or hurt the environment around us."
