Landfill Cell Closure
Contracting Agency: Sanitary Service Company
Completion Date: 1997
Final cover to close the Pendleton municipal solid waste landfill. Required excavation, transport, application and compaction of soil cover, and construction of drainage systems to meet Oregon Department of Environmental quality regulatory standards. The project was in a dry arid region with high daytime winds creating significant blowing dust. To compensate for the daytime winds and low water availability at the site a considerable amount of the work was done at night.
