Alberni Valley Landfill Leachate Collection

Alberni Clayoquot Regional District
Project Date: 
1995 to 1996

A surface water collection system was required to prevent landfill leachate from polluting the neighbouring lands of the Alberni Valley Landfill. A barrier was needed to capture any leachate and to convey it to the landfill treatment lagoon.


This project included the design and construction of a containment berm, a leachate pumping station, and a diversion channel and pipeline around the perimeter of the landfill.


By intercepting leachate before it could leave the site, potential pollution of neighbouring properties and downstream water bodies was prevented.
