Albany Landfill

The proposed Rapp Road Landfill expansion includes the construction of approximately 10 acres of new landfill footprint adjacent to the current landfill area and an overfill of approximately 30 acres of previously land-filled area. An extensive public information effort was undertaken to support this project including: public meetings and presentations, a public information website and key visualizations to support project understanding. For example, the liner for the proposed landfill expansion will consist of a modern double composite system that meets all state and federal requirements. The representation of the liner system details on the website is an excellent example of a visualization designed to clearly illustrate project details and increase project understanding.
