• Company says cap for Moretown landfill will reduce odor
     | January 29,2013

    MORETOWN – Operators of the Moretown landfill announced Tuesday that workers had completed a two-acre plastic cap for the landfill as of Friday as well as other activities to help reduce odor.

    The company placed two acres of a plastic sheet, a geomembrane, on the landfill and installed a new piping system to help "dewater" the gas collection wells and help the vacuum of the gas collection system, the company wrote in a news release. The
    efforts will help reduce odors, the company wrote.

    In coming weeks, workers will continue “dewatering” activities, replace existing damaged landfill gas extraction wells discovered by recently completed video inspection work and replace intermediate cover soils on planned construction areas, the company wrote.

    Portions of the work were not completed due to District No. 5 restrictions and weather conditions, the company wrote.
    The company informed the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources about the updates Friday.
