Sonic drilling associated with the installation of thermocouples at the quarry landfill will begin today (October 26). Connelly & Associates is the contractor for the drilling project and anticipates it will be finished no later than December 15, depending upon the weather. The installation of the thermocouple system, which will monitor landfill temperatures, is a recommendation from the DEQ Expert Panel Report and a court-ordered mandate that must be completed by December 31. During the drilling process, neighbors of the landfill may experience an increase in odors and noise in the surrounding area. The City will provide updates on the progress and completion of the dedicated system of thermocouples as they become available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
