Landfill Update

Posted on February 22, 2022 at 5:55 PM by Joey Lamie

City of Bristol officials met with the DEQ Director Mike Rolband and DEQ Director of Operations James Golden on Friday, February 18, 2022, to discuss the history of the landfill, the odor issue, and potential solutions moving forward.  The City and DEQ will continue to work to resolve the odor issues as quickly as possible.

The City received four responses to the Request for Proposals from professional engineering firms for services at the landfill.  The responses will undergo an internal review and then interviews will be conducted.  The City expects this process to take 3-4 weeks before a firm is selected. 

Draper Aden is in the process of designing a system to collect landfill gases from the chimney on the western side of the landfill.  Draper Aden is also in the process of designing an expansion to the gas well system.
