City has two major landfill projects remaining, Bristol Herald Courier
“The city is now two major landfill remediation projects away from fulfilling all of the recommendations made by an expert panel and required in separate court consent decrees.”
“The [sidewall] system is working as designed. It’s been in place since before June 14 [deadline]. We installed the leachate treatment system by June 30 [deadline]. It’s working and online. I think there are some tweaks that have to be made to it get it working at optimal efficiency,” City Manager Randy Eads said Thursday.
“Our next order of business is shaping the landfill in order to put the EVOH [Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer; a thermoplastic product that is an effective gas barrier] liner in place,” [Randy] Eads said.
The shaping work is expected to start this fall, in either October or November. The permanent leachate system is due to be in place and operational by June 30, 2024, Eads said in response to questions.
“Those are all of the major projects. That should complete everything in appendix A of the consent decree with Virginia DEQ [Department of Environmental Quality] and Bristol Tennessee.”
