SWANA 2014 Landfill Remediation Silver Award of Exellence
Saufley Field Road C&D Landfill
The Saufley Field Road C&D Landfill Closure and Stormwater Improvements Project is a unique project because it involved the design, permitting and public involvement services necessary to construct a new closure system that has never been permitted or constructed in the State of Florida. Closure Turf was chosen as the closure system and it consists of utilizing 12” fill, 50 mil LLDPE Liner, layer of synthetic turf and sand ballast infill. The Closure Turf closure system was chosen because it would provide the stability, aesthetics, environmental protection and reduced operation and maintenance costs that were necessary for this facility based on the existing site conditions and the public involvement meetings with all stakeholders. The project took approximately five (5) years to design, permit and construct and it successfully improved the water quality, air quality and public health for the Escambia County residents living around the facility.
