Key LFGTE Project Experience: Landfill Gas System Management Services and Related Training

In addition to our design services, EarthRes provides a full range of landfill gas (LFG) system management services for its clients, including operation, troubleshooting, monitoring, maintenance, and compliance reporting of the active gas collection and control systems. EarthRes performs all aspects of LFG system monitoring and reporting required under the federal New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) regulations and state/local regulations, including the following:

  • Well field Monitoring/Troubleshooting
  • Quarterly Surface Methane Emissions Monitoring
  • Routine Building and Landfill Perimeter Combustible Gas Monitoring
  • Gas System Dewatering and Maintenance
  • Annual Landfill Gas Characterization Sampling

EarthRes’ LFG system technicians perform targeted and routine wellfield monitoring to troubleshoot, adjust and operate systems in accordance with NSPS regulatory requirements. Our experienced technicians and managers evaluate the data collected and continually optimize system operation by balancing the need for odor control while maintaining gas quality for offsite sale. A database and Geographic Information System- based system are utilized to manage wellfield data and to geographically map wellfield performance on a routine basis.

EarthRes’ LFG management reporting services includes preparation of weekly and monthly gas system performance reports, monthly maintenance and equipment inspection reports, quarterly monitoring reports, and semi-annual NSPS compliance reports.

EarthRes can also provide training for LFG system management services and related regulatory, compliance, permitting, and monitoring programs upon the clients’ request.
