Project Details

The Bivens landfill was constructed to serve the needs of a large scale CCR basin excavation that occurred over a 5 year time period. The pond excavation exceeded 5M tons of CCR material, requiring multiple phases of landfill construction and closure. As a result of the plant decreasing production and the impending plant closure, the closure process was initiated prior to the last cell reaching final grade. A final closure design was initiated with consultation from engineering firms, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, and utility representatives.

Project Challenges & Solutions

Leachate Management

Due to a shrinking landfill footprint, Trans Ash utilized tankers and trucking crews to haul leachate water back to the utility facility for treatment and settling. This ensured that there was no unpermitted discharge at the landfill.

Limited Access

A series of “fingers” and roads were constructed to efficiently haul material to the final cover area. Trans Ash utilized low pressure placement equipment to ensure the liner system was not damaged.

Regulatory Management

Trans ash was able to work through stringent CCR regulations to obtain an expansion and closure permit that provided the client the storage capacity they required.
