Assisted with Type I Municipal Solid Waste Permit Application, design, and new construction for 242-acre landfill

The City of Big Spring retained Parkhill to prepare and submit a Type I Municipal Solid Waste Permit Application in 2014. The permitted landfill included 242 acres of land in the northeast of the city in Howard County. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) reviewed the permit and found it Technically Complete and issued an operational permit in November 2017. Over its life, the landfill will provide over 12.74 million cubic yards of waste disposal capacity and approximately 106 years of landfill life for city residents, businesses, and residents of Howard County.

Coordination with governmental agencies is always critical with MSW permits and this one was no exception. In addition to TCEQ, the Environmental Team also coordinated with the Federal Aviation Administration, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Texas Historical Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Texas Parks and Wildlife, as well as local government officials including the Permian Basin COG throughout the project. As required by TCEQ rules, Parkhill conducted a traffic study to determine the availability and adequacy of roads that would be used to access the landfill. Coordination efforts with TxDOT determined that a specific intersection would require upgrading by their engineering team. Parkhill produced specific plans for the intersection of concern that were approved by TxDOT and TCEQ. Additional requirements included thorough archeological and endangered wildlife investigations were performed for the landfill by our subconsultants and found no adverse impacts.

Floodway impacts were also evaluated as the Big Sandy Draw perennial stream was located immediately adjacent to the property on the east side. The site drainage system was designed with a series of stormwater detention ponds along the east side of the landfill to limit off-site flows from exceeding the predevelopment flow rates into Big Sandy Draw.

The project began construction in February 2020 and was completed in January 2021. In addition to the initial landfill cell, the project included a new scale house, maintenance building, and citizen waste drop-off facility. A TCEQ preopening inspection was performed on March 10, 2021, and all requirements of the permit were found to be met.
