Quarry Landfill Update for August 25, 2023

Posted on August 25, 2023 at 11:00 AM by Joey Lamie

Placement of the final layer of soil on the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System (SOMS) is now complete. Installation of pipes for gas removal at the quarry landfill continued this week. An 8-inch header pipe is now tied-in on the southern end of the landfill, which has increased the amount of landfill gas being removed and burned off at the flare onsite. The Bristol Virginia Fire Department is scheduled to be at the landfill on August 31 (next Thursday) with its rappelling equipment to finish installing the piping on the southeastern wall of the quarry.
