Landfill Compliance Services

CEA performs landfill monitoring activities for numerous municipalities to evaluate compliance with State and local guidelines including Section 19.142 (6) of the Massachusetts Solid Waste Management Regulations (310 CMR 19.000) and the “Landfill Assessment and Closure Guidance Manual” prepared by Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (Revised September 1993). Landfill assessments often proceed in three phases: (1) initial site assessment, (2) comprehensive site assessment, and (3) corrective action alternatives analysis. At the end of each phase, a report is provided to the State or Local regulatory authority recommending whether subsequent phase(s) are required to conduct further monitoring and/or correct deficiencies. Typical landfill compliance activities include:

  • Landfill Cover Inspections
  • Landfill Gas Monitoring
  • Field Testing Of Water Quality Parameters
  • Sampling And Groundwater And Surface Water
