Since receiving the Ohio EPA Final Findings & Orders on May 3, we have been working diligently and have completed a number items. We will keep you all informed as we work to comply with the Final Orders and throughout the process. The following highlights a number of key items:
A Public Information Meeting: The meeting has been scheduled by Stony Hollow Landfill to provide information on site activities. The meeting will take place at Dunbar Early College High School located at 1400 Albritton Drive, Dayton, Ohio on June 6, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. we will be promoting the event and you can share the date and location with those who might be interested in attending.
Preparations Begin for Necessary Updates to the Gas Well Collection Network: Our contractor began to mobilize personnel, equipment and materials this week. In accordance with the Final Orders, new landfill gas extraction well(s) installation in the area of interest is planned to begin following the Memorial Day holiday and will be completed before 4th of July. We have taken extra steps and put in place fail safes to help control odors during the drilling process.
Ambient Air Monitoring Enhancements: We are increasing the frequency of sampling of our ambient air monitoring, adding more monitors and conducting more laboratory testing to ensure the air in and around the landfill is safe for our employees and our neighbors. RAPCA will be conducting periodic monitoring in the community during these activities. RAPCA has updated their website with the ambient air monitoring data and will update the site with new results as they are received and after they have undergone Ohio EPA review. To date no levels above health standards have been detected. More information can be found at http://www.rapca.org/programs/air-quality-monitoring/stoney-hollow-sampling.
Odor Surveillance: We will continue to conduct odor surveillance three times a day, seven days a week.
Odor Management Plan: The order sets clear guidelines and measurement criteria that must be met before the Ohio EPA will give approval for any changes. http://edocpub.epa.ohio.gov/publicportal/ViewDocument.aspx?docid=616708
