Jeremy Morris Delivers Report to EREF Demonstrating Functional Stability at a Closed MSW Landfill

Jeremy Morris (Maryland) led a study (as primary investigator) on a recent Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) project and presented his findings in a report entitled "Transitioning from Active to Passive Care at Municipal Landfills: Full-Scale Site Evaluations using the EPCC Methodology" and the EREF published the report documents with a press release on May 2, 2016.

The study was to illustrate how the performance-based Evaluation of Post-Closure Care (EPCC) methodology developed by Geosyntec for EREF can be applied to demonstrate step-wise reductions in post-closure care (PCC) activity from active controls to fully passive measures. To do this, a series of retroactive data evaluations at a case study landfill were conducted over a 20-year PCC period. The study stressed the importance of site conditions and the availability of data for performance-based evaluations to be successful.
