Solid Waste Landfill Services
CES offers our city/county government and industrial clients a wide
range of landfill services in compliance with Subtitle D and state specific regulations. We are well
versed with landfill plan development, groundwater monitoring (when required), statistical analysis of
groundwater quality data under Subtitle D, and geochemical interpretations. Our approach to landfill
work is quality and service driven. We provide what the client needs in a cost-effective and
Landfill Site Certification
We have the expertise to certify both municipal and industrial landfill
sites in compliance with state and federal regulations. We offer specialized services in the earth
sciences (geology, soil science, hydrology, etc.), GIS mapping, and engineering. CES will send a
trained professional to visit the proposed landfill site and will then evaluate proximity criteria,
geologic conditions and groundwater hydrology. Our detailed Site Certification Plans are prepared
through a cooperative approach with the regulatory agencies.
We staff professional engineers who are highly experienced with
designing both municipal and non-municipal landfills, RCRA-compliant landfill liners, and caps. They
also provide construction oversight to ensure that design requirements are being met in the field.
Engineering Design and Closure Plans
Objectives of the Engineering Design and Closure Plan are to describe the
landfill development criteria, provide documentation for the design of various landfill features, and ensure
that the Plan complies with state and federal design and performance standards. Some components of a typical
plan include general site development, final cover design, stability analysis, surface water drainage and
management, quality assurance, and a closure performance assessment.
Operations and Maintenance Plans
The Operations and Maintenance plans are customized to fit our clients’
needs and abilities and for site specific conditions. We prepare an easy to understand plan that discusses
staffing/personnel, training requirements, security, waste acceptance procedures, management of special
wastes, facility equipment requirements, groundwater and leachate monitoring and reporting, landfill gas
monitoring and controls, surface water drainage controls, and emergency response procedures.
Groundwater Monitoring Plans
Groundwater Monitoring Plans are thorough and comprehensive because early
detection monitoring is extremely important to prevention of a serious environmental liability. Groundwater
monitoring also protects the landfill owner/operator by identifying any pre-existing or naturally occurring
groundwater contamination from other sources. As required by State and Federal Regulations, a Registered
Professional Geologist, certified groundwater professional, or Professional Engineer will certify and stamp
all Groundwater Monitoring Plans.
