Drilling in the Quarry Landfill to Begin Today

Posted on March 29, 2023 at 8:59 AM by Joey Lamie

Drilling for the gas well expansion project will begin this afternoon.  Work will start in the northern end of the quarry landfill and proceed clockwise through the perimeter wells.  Drilling activities related to the project will occur between 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. each day. Any well that is not completed during the day will be covered with a vacuum box and steel cover.  The vacuum box will be temporarily tied into an existing well to prevent emissions. 

 The goal of the gas well expansion project is to increase the efficiency of gas collection at the quarry landfill which will reduce odors. Throughout the drilling process, some residents and areas may experience an increase in odors from the quarry landfill.
