Quarry Landfill Update for March 17, 2023

Posted on March 17, 2023 at 12:15 PM by Joey Lamie

Work continued this week on installing the lower collector pipe for the sidewall odor mitigation system (SOMS). Approximately two-thirds of the lower collector pipe (3,100 linear feet) is now installed in the landfill. Also this week, a liner crew started work to tie the SOMS into the existing liner and cover the lower horizontal collector trench. The locations for new wells at the landfill have been surveyed and marked.

Work at the quarry landfill continued this past week. The field crew continues to trench around the quarry sidewall in preparation for the placement of the lower collector pipe.  Trenching has advanced to the midpoint of the eastern quarry wall. The initial layer of rock has been added where the trench is completed and the crew has begun placing the lower collector pipe in the trench.

Quarry Landfill Update for March 3, 2023.

Work continues on Phase 2 of the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System (SOMS). The liner has been prepared for installation just past the southeastern corner of the landfill, reflecting significant progress on the SOMS.  Excavation is underway on the east wall to dig the trench for the lower SOMS collector. Additionally, piping of the vacuum laterals for the landfill wells has been reshaped to create a greater downslope for condensate collection.
