Upland Excavating completed several detailed studies and reports for the purpose of modernizing its current landfill facility. These extensive studies were done to understand the site’s hydrogeological, hydrological, and geologic conditions. In addition, the company also prepared a landfill design, operation and closure plan, and an environmental effects monitoring plan.

All the studies and reports can be found here:

  1. Technical Assessment Report
  2. Design Operations and Closure Plan
  3. Hydrogeology and Hydrology Characterization Report
  4. Geotechnical Investigation
  5. Stakeholder Consultation Summary Report

Highlights of the studies:

  • The groundwater does not flow to Rico Lake, McIvor Lake, nor the Cold Creek watershed, which supplies the Quinsam River Hatchery.
  • Modeling of the future landfill performance verifies water quality standards will be met at the site boundary at all times.
