Client: Regional District of North Okanagan
Location: Vernon, BC



XCG was retained by the Regional District of North Okanagan to provide engineering services for the development of a landfill development plan and Landfill Gas Management System at the Greater Vernon Recycling and Disposal Facility. Prior to undertaking detailed design of the Landfill Gas Management System, a fill plan was developed in order to facilitate the installation of the well field by focussing on optimizing airspace consumption and progressive closure of the site. The objective of the fill plan was to increase landfill gas collection potential while also reducing the potential for environmental impacts associated with leachate and stormwater.

The Landfill Gas Management System, constructed in 2014 and commissioned in 2015 includes a landfill gas well field (horizontal trenches and vertical wells) and control plant with flaring system. The work included detailed design, preparation and submission of a Design Plan to the British Columbia Ministry of Environment, preparation of tender documents, administering tendering, construction administration and inspection, commissioning and providing maintenance services.
