Butcher Creek Landfill Expansion
Temporary Rain Cover Installation
Chase City, Virginia
The Southside Regional Public Service Authority (SRPSA) owns and operates a RCRA Subtitle ‘D’municipal solid waste landfill in Mecklenburg County, VA.
An expansion of the landfill of approximately 10 acres was constructed in 2018, with a new composite liner system permitted and installed for future waste disposal.
To keep the liner system (and drainage layers) protected, SRPSA opted for a RhinoSkin® Woven Coated Polyethylene (WCPE) rain cover over the cell as filling progresses over the next several years.
Not only does the RhinoSkin® protect the valuable liner system, it also keeps rainwater out of the leachate collection system, which saves the landfill substantial operating costs.
