Bringing forward the timeline for drilling works on the active landfill cell. Drilling is typically scheduled at the completion of a cell.
Cell 10A is undergoing final capping to ensure the contents of the cell are contained. SUEZ will be connecting the landfill gas network to ensure the encapsulated landfill gas continues to be extracted as planned.
From mid-July, 2019 SUEZ will be commencing a gas well drilling program and the connection of existing gas wells. These wells form a part of the process to convert landfill gas into electricity to deliver power to the grid. These works will reduce the risk of odour to the community.
