Clients impacted by solid waste management concerns look to Norfolk Ram for landfill design services including drainage, landfill gas and leachate management and capacity utilization issues as well as landfill design and construction oversight. Norfolk Ram engineers consult for local planners and community groups to discuss important landscape and topographic issues. Our staff include landscape designers and engineers who perform comprehensive site evaluations to aid in proposing the best functional design. Norfolk Ram is also experienced in facilitating the closure of landfills through the importation of Urban Fill in accordance with applicable state regulations governing disposal of contaminated soils at landfills, including providing oversight and monitoring of such imported soils for total petroleum hydrocarbons, and heavy metals utilizing ultra violet fluorescence (UVF) and x-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology.
Norfolk Ram also provides services with regard to the requirement for treatment of hazardous waste per 40 CFR 262, under the requirements of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), including creation of waste minimization programs, recordkeeping and reporting and staff training.
Solid waste issues often result in sensitive discussions at the local and/or state level. Norfolk staff experts are practiced at facilitating local dialogue and managing communication of technical information with the public in a way that is clear and anticipates local concerns.
Norfolk was also the engineering consultant for the first MA DEP approved solar panel facility on a closed landfill in the Central Region. The Solar project will generate 1.6 MW of electricity from two solar arrrays. You can read more about the project by checking out our project summary sheet listed below.
