The Sacramento, Calif., Municipal Utility District (SMUD) selected SCS Engineers to provide engineering and construction support services for a landfill closure located on SMUD’s North City Substation property. SCS will provide the necessary services aligned with SMUD’s Environmental Protection Policy. SMUD is committed to environmental stewardship, the conservation of natural resources, reductions in hazardous substances and mobile sources of NOx emissions, recycling and responsible disposal.
“Our team has extensive experience in similar landfill closure projects,” said Wendell Minshew, SCS senior project manager, in a statement. “We understand and support the district’s environmental commitments, as well as its fiscal responsibility to the communities it serves.”
SCS will assist SMUD’s environmental services staff in designing and engineering a closure and post-closure maintenance plan, as well as engineering to cap the landfill. SCS will handle the project permitting, engineering, waste management, construction quality assurance and project management support, as well as provide community outreach.
Once the project is in place, the SCS team will monitor and generate the necessary landfill gas and groundwater reports.
