Landserv is currently working with a Local Council in Victoria to carry out low cost, practical and focused investigation to remove the buffer zone around an old landfill where encroachment has occurred. The project involved targeted test pitting to characterise the waste and assess landfill gas generation potential. In addition, the scopes of work also include the installation and monitoring of perimeter landfill gas bores. The data collected from these activities will be compiled alongside historical information to produce a landfill gas risk assessment with recommendations as to the removal or reduction (as appropriate) of the buffer. Furthermore, the investigation will also provide the basis for satisfying the Ministerial Direction No. 1 issued by the Ministry of Planning for a number of rezoning decisions.
