Thermocouple Drilling Update

Posted on November 11, 2022 at 11:57 AM by Joey Lamie

As of November 11, Connelly & Associates has completed three well borehole drillings in relation to the installation of the thermocouple system at the quarry landfill. The probes in each well have been set at 165 feet, 155 feet, and 218 feet respectively. As a reminder, wells are being capped at the end of each workday to minimize, as much as possible, gas emissions from the bored hole until the installation of the well casing pipe occurs. Additionally, the matter extracted during the drilling process will be tested to determine organic compounds as part of the effort to address odors at the landfill.
