Waste Containment Facility Planning and Design

From permitting and design through construction, Geosyntec delivers solutions of exceptional value for "greenfield" and capacity expansions.
From permitting and design through construction, Geosyntec delivers solutions of exceptional value for "greenfield" and capacity expansions.

We specialize in closure solutions that can facilitate other site uses.  For example, Geosyntec worked with the Lopez Canyon Landfill near Los Angeles to develop a recycling center and helipad as new postclosure site uses.

Geosyntec is recognized as a leader in helping our clients achieve safe, secure containment of their regulated wastes requiring land disposal.  We provide engineering and related services for siting, permitting, design, construction management/quality assurance, environmental monitoring, and closure/post-closure care.  We are experienced in the design of:

The applied research of our leading practitioners for U.S. EPA, DOE, and industry associations has defined the state-of-the-practice for more than 25 years.  As a result, Geosyntec is often first-to-field with emerging technologies related to the secure, safe containment of our nation’s solid wastes and industrial residuals.  Many of the waste containment system design methodologies that we pioneered in the 1980s are today the standards of practice in the field. 

We continue to work with federal and state agencies to field-test new technologies and develop guidance documents for their application.  For example, Geosyntec partnered with the University of Illinois and Drexel University on a landmark 10-year study for U.S. EPA that identified methods to improve the long-term performance of municipal and hazardous waste landfills.  Our senior practitioners, in collaboration with the academic community, authored the technical guidance for RCRA/CERCLA final cover systems for U.S. EPA.  Today, we are working closely with the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF) and the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC) to develop new performance-based guidelines for assessing the post-closure care requirements of MSW landfills.
