Quarry Landfill update for December 22, 2022

Posted on December 22, 2022 at 3:03 PM by Joey Lamie

As of December 22, all the thermistors have been successfully installed for the Thermocouple systems and the temperature sensor equipment will be installed on December 29 and December 30. 

Progress on the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System Pilot continues as SCS Field Services has installed the 8-inch high-density polyethylene (HDPE) piping for the Horizontal Collector Pump in the low point. Additionally, the first section of perforated piping with rock surrounding has also been installed. 

While SCS Field Services works on the Sidewall Odor Mitigation System, and as temperatures fluctuate and remain extremely low, we anticipate some residents and areas may see an increase in odors from the quarry landfill. The City will continue to provide public updates on the progress of the Sidewall Odor Mitigation and Thermocouple systems when work resumes next week.
