AEL is committed to making sure the environment at our landfill is free from any contaminants.
You can rest assured, by closely monitoring ground and surface water and methane, AEL ensures that the landfill site performs as designed and protects the environment.
Tracking ground and surface water and methane migration patterns allows AEL to detect migration quickly. In addition, AEL has developed important groundwater monitoring well installation and sampling procedures that help eliminate the common problem of measuring contamination from sources unrelated to the landfill.
Our experienced hydrologist and other specialists constantly interpret groundwater monitoring data and statistics for fast, appropriate response.
AEL’s LFG monitoring system consists of a perimeter compliance network of 12 gas probes located at or near the permit boundary. Monthly monitoring is conducted by 3rd party LFG consultants. Should methane levels exceed the lower explosive limit in any of the gas probes, AEL employs effective design alternatives to prevent potential migration of the methane.
Day in, day out we are always on the job and are 100% committed to safety!
