Quarry Landfill Update for February 17, 2023

Posted on February 17, 2023 at 12:36 PM by Joey Lamie

Phase 1 of the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System (SOMS) is fully operational and testing of that operation has begun. This week, the Phase 1 Upper and Lower horizontal collector landfill gas wellheads were installed and tied into the existing landfill gas system. Valves were installed to allow the horizontal collectors now connected into the existing landfill gas collection system to be tuned and adjusted for gas recovery optimization. Work continues on Phase 2, with efforts focused on excavating and installing a lower horizontal perimeter gas collection perforated pipe along the southern and eastern walls of the quarry. Approximately 1,100 feet of the lower collector for Phase 2 is currently installed at the southern end of the quarry landfill.  

 Procurement of the landfill gas expansion project material is taking place.
