Landfill Insurance Claim Support

Farallon conducted a detailed evaluation of past and estimated future cleanup costs for adjacent landfills. The evaluation involved characterizing landfill contents using disposal records, predicting past and future contaminant mass release rates, and assessing hydrogeologic conditions and the nature and extent of soil and groundwater contamination.  Remedial actions previously conducted by others included source removal, soil vapor extraction, and air stripping/hydraulic control of groundwater.  The current remediation system treats emissions via thermal destruction in the landfill flare system.  Farallon used its evaluation results to assess the effectiveness of the current system and propose remediation alternatives, and prepared detailed cost estimates for regulatory responses, capitalization, and operation and maintenance over a 35 year period for several remediation alternatives.
