Project Description

Project

Landfill Closure for Steel Facility

 

Location

Ashland, Kentucky

Background

A large steelmaking facility wanted to formally close an 11.2 acre debris landfill and retained EN Engineering to complete the closure in compliance with state regulations.

Challenges

The existing landfill was not properly capped, and stormwater runoff was not being properly managed. The closure plan had to comply with state regulations and utilize plant process byproduct as a capping material.

Solutions

The client retained EN Engineering to provide detailed engineering services to properly complete the landfill closure. These services included surveying, civil engineering design and construction observation, all in compliance with state regulations. The deliverables included design drawings, specifications, and a construction survey layout that were monitored by EN Engineering via construction observation throughout the implementation process. The capped landfill was compliant with state environmental regulations and the stormwater runoff was properly managed, eliminating the potential for an environmental hazard. Working with EN Engineering, the client had a single source for detail design, construction management, and maintenance plan development.
