Champ Landfill has been hoping to get a drilling contractor in on Monday, September 16, 2019, for a landfill gas (LFG) system expansion at the facility. There was a delay with the drilling crew, and our material for the project was delayed until the middle/end of the week of the 16th. Given both of those events, we have to push the start of the LFG expansion until Monday, September 23, 2019 (a delay of one week).
Accidental exposure to medications can be a problem in the United States and it’s often in homes with young children, so it’s important to dispose of expired and old medications in the home as they present an unnecessary health risk.
Leachate is liquids present in disposed waste in a landfill, or rainwater that infiltrates through a landfill’s cover. Given the chemical and analytical make-up of landfill leachate, it cannot be discharged to a natural waterway (stream, river, lake, etc.). Champ Landfill has a direct discharge of landfill leachate to the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD). MSD both regulates and treats St. Louis’ sewage in a safe and responsible manner before returning the clean water to surrounding waterways.
Storm water management and aesthetical improvements have been scheduled for fall 2016 at Champ Landfill. Our landfill is undergoing a project started in October 2016 to improve storm water management, detention, and erosion control on and around facilities.
