ANNUAL OPERATIONS AND MONITORING REPORTS
Landfill gas, leachate, and groundwater monitoring data are collected on a regular basis, per each landfill’s WDNR-approved Plan of Operation. An analysis of these data are submitted annually to the WDNR in an annual report. The annual reports also summarize the history of each landfill, including the years of operation and its remediation history. For a copy of a particular landfill’s annual report, please contact Brynn Bemis at (608) 267-1986.
LANDFILL ZONES OF CONCERN
The City requires certain approved construction practices and safety precautions for buildings and homes adjacent to existing landfills. These requirements and maps of the zones are outlined in subsection 29.20 of the Madison General Ordinance. If your property falls within a recognized ‘landfill zone of concern’ you will be notified of these additional requirements when applying for a building permit. For questions on this subject, please contact Brynn Bemis at (608) 267-1986.
