Temporary rain covers are an effective way of securing vacant areas of a landfill cell to prevent water infiltration. These covers can be used over inactive cells or cells with low volume waste. By installing the rain cover, the rain water avoids contact with the waste reducing the accumulation of leachate within the cell. The leachate reduction results in a reduction of costs for leachate removal and wastewater treatment.
Chesapeake Containment Systems offers professional installation of temporary rain covers made of high-quality geosynthetic materials. This type of rain cover can help prevent storm water from being treated as leachate which will save money and help preserve the environment.
