Quarry Landfill Update for February 10, 2023

Posted on February 10, 2023 at 12:11 PM by Joey Lamie

The new, upper liner for Phase 1 of the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System (SOMS) has now been tied into the quarry landfill’s existing liner. The final layer of soil is being placed on the liner to complete Phase 1 of the SOMS project. The landfill gases from Phase 1 are being captured and burned off at the temporary flare. Pending further testing, additional piping will be installed to allow for the option of routing the combustible gas from phase 1 into the existing landfill gas collection system.  Work on Phase 2 of the SOMS continues with trench excavation and placement of the lower collector system.
