Case Study: Landfill

Problem: Landfill was nearing closure date, and an estimate of the remaining capacity was required

Our approach: Fly the site and use the resulting imagery and topography in conjunction with site planning documents to estimate the remaining capacity of the site and provide a fill plan for the remainder of the landfill life cycle.

Solution: After flying the site, we collaborated with the City to combine newly created imagery and elevation data with existing landfill plans. Volume calculations were completed to accurately assess the amount of fill that had been placed in the landfill to date, as well as where the Certificate of Approval allowed room for additional fill. The client also requested some additional information about the slopes on site, which were easily provided with the data available.
