Ontario Co. Landfill
- Posted: June 12, 2015
We have been experiencing a significant amount of rain over the past several days. The rain has hampered at times the placement of cover soils. In addition, our current active filling area is located along the upper slope and furthest eastern edge of the landfill. We are working diligently to work through the inclement weather. We are also in the process of installing a new haul road along a section of the eastern slope as a means to facilitate future disposal operations within the western expansion area.
The recently installed vertical gas wells have all been connected to the gas collection system. We are now in the process of covering the
slopes that were impacted from the lateral and header line installations.
We are doing some testing of the 4 gas flares this afternoon and the power plants have temporarily been taken off line in order for us
to complete these tests. We anticiapte the plants will only be off line for 60-75 mins this afternoon.
The recent harsh weather conditions have been hampering our ability to complete the installation of the newly installed gas collection system wells. We are doing our best to work through this situation.
Good morning. We have recently completed the installation of 20 new vertical gas wells which are now in the process of being connected to the existing gas collection system (and power plants). In parallel we are also now starting to begin the installation of new horizontal gas wells which will provide additional gas collection as we continue to abandon older gas wells as fill progression continues.

We are once again planning to undertake an additional expansion of the landfill gas collection system beginning in mid January pending approval from the NYSDEC. We are planning to add 15 new vertical gas wells into the current working area.
Lastly, we will be installing two new gas flares in late Spring 2015.
