TetraTech Design 38 Acres Exposed Geomembrane Landfill Cover
Tetra Tech designed and permitted an exposed geomembrane cover for 38 acres of the landfill that are at final grade and eight acres where landfilling will not occur for several years. Together with the landfill baseliner, this cover protects the environment from the waste and has several other benefits, including enhancing landfill gas collection and odor control, reducing infiltration of leachate, and maintenance. The project was constructed by Abbonizio Contractors.
