Tuscarora Regional Landfill
Thalle was contracted by the Coastal Regional Solid Waste Management Authority (CRSWMA) to perform a partial closure at the Tuscarora Regional Landfill. The project was part of CRSWMA’s installation of a new gas recovery and gas-to-electric power conversion plant.
The closure included 25 acres of stripping and sub-grade preparation, import of approximately 120,000 cubic yards of material for subgrade and protective cover, over 3,659,000 square feet of geosynthetic liners, erosion control and site restoration. Also included in the contract was work on the gas extraction system. Thalle repaired the existing passive system and installed a new active system consisting of 23 gas extraction wells, over 5,800 feet of HDPE gas collection laterals and a pre-processing station.
