Final Landfill Gas Best Management Practices

Date: October 20, 2008

To: All LEAs

Final Best Management Practices (BMP) for Landfill Gas Monitoring Well/Probe Design and Construction: These BMPs were adapted from the SCS Engineers report on Landfill Gas Monitoring Well Functionality at 20 California Landfills. The Board accepted the SCS report and recommendations. The BMPs are intended to provide operators, consultants and LEAs the benefit of the report's findings and recommendations when designing, reviewing, installing or replacing required landfill gas (LFG) monitoring wells/probes. Stakeholder comments, along with those from a Technical Advisory Group, were incorporated by CIWMB staff to finalize the BMPs.

This all LEA email was sent on behalf of the Cleanup, Closure and Financial Assurance Division of the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
