Gas O&M – Pump Maintenance and Cleaning – 2021 CEC Solid Waste Webinar Series

August 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Presented by Corey Schreck and Chris Sliger

A Robust Gas Collection System O&M program is imperative for a healthy and compliant landfill. Dewatering the landfill gas wells is an integral part of that O&M program, but data collection pertaining to this portion of the program is often overlooked. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the O&M procedures that can provide valuable data in regards to maintaining equipment life and status, and will also discuss electronic recordkeeping methods used to collect the associated data.

Mr. Sliger is a Assistant Project Manager with Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. who has over seven years of engineering consulting experience. His primary focus has been in (a) Solid Waste and (b) Surface Water. In Solid Waste, he has performed Aerial Budget Modeling (ABM) for multiple sites. He has created 5-year plans for multiple landfills using AutoCAD Civil3D. He has also assisted with Minor Modifications and other permitting/compliance issues. He has created Survey123 surveys for use in Gas O&M, dewatering wells, and other landfill maintenance areas. In Surface Water, Mr. Sliger has performed multiple Waste-Load Allocation studies, Total Maximum Daily Load Analyses, statistical analyses, and other projects involving hydraulic and hydrologic modeling. Specific modeling toolkits utilized include HEC-HMS, River2D, Plumes, Aermod, and GIS. Permitting experience includes (but is not limited to) the US Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit Program and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), specifically NPDES permitting. He has assisted in the preparation of SWPPPs for various industries. Field experience includes (but is not limited to) dye-tracing studies, macroinvertebrate bioassessments, surface water sampling, groundwater sampling, Phase I site assessments, and bathymetric surveys. Mr. Sliger has also assisted in project management responsibilities, including proposal preparation, request-for-bids, cost-benefit analyses, and work plan compilation. Mr. Sliger has graduate-level environmental engineering coursework in erosion and sediment control; advanced wastewater treatment; open-channel hydraulics; environmental chemistry; environmental microbiology; urban hydrology and storm water engineering; environmental transport and kinetics; watershed monitoring and assessment; air pollution engineering and control.  Mr. Sliger also has graduate-level nuclear engineering coursework in reactor theory and design, partial differential equations, and advanced numerical methods.
