Burning landfill requires an expert to put the fire out once and for all

November 10, 2010

Terra-Petra was recently contacted by the Fire Department in a small city in South Dakota about a “burning landfill” situation.  Apparently in mid-October a lightning strike hit the top soil above the landfill and ignited the landfill debris.  It is now essentially burning and smoldering below the surface and has been for a few weeks now.  While this is not considered to be a safety hazard, this Fire Department is assisting the property owner and looking for the right solution to remedy the situation.  Terra-Petra has offered its services to assess the situation and come back with a cost-effective action plan to safely put out the fire.  So this South Dakota Fire Department has passed our information on to the property owner and so we will stay on top of this opportunity as it develops! These are just some of the various land fill situations fuel our fire (no pun intended).
