Because the landfill sits on top of the Tuscan Aquifer, various procedures are utilized in order to prevent contamination of groundwater. The landfill is lined with a double layer of compacted clay and geomembrane. The groundwater is tested regularly through a series of monitoring wells that line the perimeter of the landfill. They have a methane gas collection system in place which channels the gas to a 2.2 megawatt generator that is on site. The electricity that is produced is enough to power approximately 1,400 households.
