The Peoria City/County Municipal Landfill Committee (Solid Waste Committee) met the third Wednesday, May 15th at 3 p.m. at City Hall. Items of note included that the Foth Engineering budget was slightly over expected expenditures because of the unexpected previous month IEPA Bureau of Air inspection and documents request.
For April, 10,000 gallons of landfill leachate were transported off-site (to the Greater Peoria Sanitary District)
for treatment and discharge.
Newly installed solar powered sump pumps are running and are expected to help pull off more landfill leachate.
Work is also proceeding for installation of a new gas flare control system which will improve management of the landfill off-gassing.
Landfill waste receipts were again down for the previous month. Year 2019 shows 49,493.97 tons received through April compared to 53,064.63 in 2018.
