Quarry Landfill Update for June 23, 2023

Posted on June 23, 2023 at 11:46 AM by Joey Lamie

Tuning of the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System (SOMS) is being conducted. Landfill gas is successfully being captured by the SOMS system and combusted at the landfill’s flare. Six of the large-diameter, dual-phase extraction wells are fully operational and connected to the gas and liquid extraction system. A new, 8-inch gas extraction pipe will be installed in the southeastern corner of the quarry landfill for additional gas extraction beginning next week. Our local fire department’s rappelling crew will be on-site to assist with the new gas extraction pipe placement over the side of the landfill.
