Chester County Solid Waste Authority recently completed several innovative projects which will be presented:
Solar Panels: Panels were installed on top of the closed and capped Mountain Top Landfill, an unlined quarry fill. Once connected, the panels will produce 431.5 KW DC or 300 KW AC.
ClosureTurf: Construction was recently completed on an 8-acre section of ClosureTurf, the third ClosureTurf installation at the facility. ClosureTurf is a three-component final cover system comprised of a structured geomembrane, an engineered turf, and a specialized sand infill. Use of this final cover system eliminates the layer of final cover soils necessary above geosynthetics.
Roadway Reclamation: The main haul road through the landfill was reclaimed by milling down 15 inches while mixing in 7% by volume Portland Cement followed by a double asphalt chip seal. The process greatly reduces maintenance compared to a typical gravel roadway. The project also included radar investigation to find stormwater piping under the road and vacuum-truck cleaning of a 36-inch storm drain.
