Renewable Placer: Waste Action Plan

The WPWMA  identified several development concepts and facility modifications incorporating the future needs of the WPWMA in terms of addressing regional growth, changes in regulations, increasing diversion rates, improving operational efficiencies and maintaining compatibility between operations and neighboring developments.

At their October 10, 2016 meeting, the WPWMA Board of Directors approved a contract with CH2M Hill Engineers, Inc. to conduct a wide range of master planning and environmental review services related to potential future uses of the WPWMA’s properties.

Landfill Gas Collection System Improvements

In January 2018, the WPWMA completed an upgrade to the landfill gas collection control system that was originally built in 1995. The project is anticipated to fully accommodate anticipated landfill gas flows over the next 15 years and optimize operational efficiency by providing full redundancy of key system components to ensure uninterrupted operations.
