We Take Pride in the Work we do.
Our design philosophy is to work with nature to develop the best
possible environmental control systems while taking full advantage of any natural
attributes at the site.
Our goal in landfill design is to develop operating
strategies and closure concepts that will utilize on-site materials and return the land to
an attractive and productive state, while minimizing the risk of post closure leachate
impacts on the environment. Examples of this natural control approach include leachate
minimization through surface water diversion and progressive closure at Penticton,
hydraulic trap leachate collection systems at Hartland Landfill in Victoria and Hope and
natural control clay barriers at the Knockholt Landfill in Houston and the Bailey Road
Landfill in Chilliwack. In each case, use of natural attributes has resulted in a
significant reduction in capital costs by eliminating the need for an engineered leachate
We are well-versed in environmental regulations and are
familiar with operational requirements and economic constraints at small and large
landfills in B.C. communities, including capital constraints, bear problems and winter
