B&L assisted with siting, permitting, design, and construction of the Regional Landfill Facility in the Town of Ava, the first new landfill site for mixed municipal solid waste to be built and become operational in New York State in over a decade. B&L was the principal author of an Environmental Impact Statement and alternatives analysis and prepared the applications and received regulatory approval of the solid waste permits and Title V air permit for the 150-acre Subtitle D landfill facility. Following issuance of the permits, B&L prepared final plans and specifications for the site access roads, leachate storage and loadout facility, the first 23.6 acres of double composite liner, leachate pump station, fueling facility, scale, operations and maintenance facility, storage facilities, site-wide SCADA system, an extensive stormwater management and staged sediment control system, as well as a study for a future landfill gas collection facility. B&L was responsible for all construction administration and inspection for the project.
