experience in solid waste management spans the entire solid waste
cycle-from initial planning, development and permitting of landfills and
transfer stations, through landfill management, gas extraction, and soil
and groundwater monitoring, to groundwater remediation, landfill
closure, capping and site redevelopment.
We are familiar with the needs of our municipal and private clients
and are accustomed to dealing with state and federal regulatory agencies
to develop cost-effective and innovative problem-solving strategies. We
are proud of our ability to deliver quality engineering solutions that
not only meet the needs of our clients, but often provide substantial
savings in time and money.
For decades, LKB has been a leader in every phase of landfill
management, from site design and cell construction to monitoring,
capping, closure and remediation. The Town of Hempstead's
Merrick Landfill/Norman J. Levy Park &
Preserve conversion is a prime example of this. LKB's newest landfill closure
project is drawing attention from an enthusiastic public as well as from
the solid waste community itself.
At our landfill projects, LKB's
expertise is at work at every landfill stratum—down to the
cell liners whose use we helped pioneer, to advanced monitoring well
systems and full-scale pump-and-treat groundwater remediation,
such as the system we designed, implemented, and currently operate at
the Town of Oyster Bay's Old Bethpage Solid Waste Disposal Facility.
Once rated as New York State's top Superfund site, the Old Bethpage
landfill was also the first in the state to receive USEPA approval for
its LKB-engineered closure and remediation program-still going strong
after almost a decade of operation.
Combining solid hard-engineering expertise with innovative and
cost-saving advances, LKB has built a reputation as a premier performer
in meeting municipal and private solid waste disposal challenges.
