Construction Nears On Landfill Remedy

Angelina County is looking for a contractor to construct a remedy for a landfill leak.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality approved a plan that includes building a trench to stop landfill gas before it reaches the landfill.

The construction and positioning of a passive system will be designed to intercept and vent landfill gas escaping from the near surface edge of the cell liner, and stop further migration of the gas.

Once the construction design is finalized, the remedy will be in place within a month.
