Scott Sheridan, PE, and Tom Ramsey, PE, will present at the 2010 Annual Solid Waste Conference. The conference, coordinated by the Old Dominion Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), will be held July 14 - 16, 2010, in Virginia Beach, Va.
With Geosyntec permitting the first mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) berm in Virginia, Scott will give an overview of the current status of MSE design and permitting. His presentation, "Mechanically Stabilized Earth Berms — Coming to a Landfill Near You," will also share recommendations for owners and regulators to consider as use of the technology increases.
Tom will present "Solid Waste Operations and Management - Accurately Predicting Landfill Site Life." His presentation will explore why solid waste managers need to track remaining site life and review various factors that impact the overall disposal life at modern landfills.
