The leachate treatment system is to be installed and operated at the Bristol Integrated Solid Waste Management Facility located at 2655 Valley Drive in Bristol, Virginia. This Facility consists of multiple landfills including two closed landfills (designated as Permit No. 498 Landfill and Permit No. 221 Landfill) and one recently active quarry landfill (designated Permit No. 588 Landfill). Landfill leachate and other landfill liquids from the Permit No. 588 Landfill and Permit No. 498 Landfill are collected and piped to discharge to the local publicly owned treatment works (Bristol Virginia Utility Authority

(BVUA or BVU). The attached figure (Attachment 1) depicts the location of each landfill, the existing leachate storage tank (which is shown on the figure but is not used due to its condition), the approximate location of leachate piping prior to offsite discharge to the local publicly owned treatment works (POTW), and sample locations corresponding to the sample result tables discussed below.




The amendment answers questions that have been received in relation to this project.  It also adds the requirement for granular activated carbon polishing phase of treatment and includes a draft process flow diagram.  Please see the addendum for additional information.  The due date of 02/17/2023 remains.
