Landfill Update for October 25, 2022

Posted on October 25, 2022 at 1:08 PM by Alex Buffalow

The City is aware of the odor issues currently emanating from the landfill and is working with SCS Engineers on mitigation efforts. The odors often times intensify with changes in temperatures and weather patterns, which the City cannot control. SCS Engineering is in the process of designing a more permanent solution with the construction of a sidewall odor mitigation system. The City anticipates having this project out to bid by November 7, and the City anticipates the completion of a portion of the pilot sidewall odor mitigation system by December 31.  This initial portion of the sidewall odor mitigation system will be located at the western chimney area of the landfill.
