Project Management for Closed Centerhill Landfill
The Port of Greater Cincinnati has been approved for a Clean Ohio Assistance Fund grant to conduct a Phase II Environmental Assessment at this 60-acre landfill, which has been closed since 1983. The Phase II and subsequent remediation of the property are complete. (description via Ohio Redevelopment Projects - ODSA)
KERAMIDA provided project management and performed weekly and monthly operation and maintenance activities for this closed landfill as well as assisted with regulatory documentation as part of the VAP requirements. KERAMIDA won the contract with the City of Cincinnati in 2001.
KERAMIDA decreased the cost of operation and maintenance by managing the project more efficiently and through the use of new technologies.
The O&M activities included management of the leachate collection system and the methane extraction system. KERAMIDA also monitored for any off-site migration of methane and managed the operating the flare system at the landfill as well as complemented corrective active action to address methane exceedances. KERAMIDA monitored the groundwater surrounding an area that contained PCBs and removed the oil with a pneumatic pump.
