LANDFILL

Defining unknown problems

Accurate delineation of landfill geometry, site edges and buried features can provide vital data for responsible site management, remedial work, reclamation and environmental compliance.

Zetica's use of an array of satellite, airborne and surface scanning techniques provides key information for detailed interpolation to reveal the subsurface environment. This can disclose important boundaries between waste material, fluid migration pathways, hot spots caused by methane generation, leachate seepage, compaction levels, and ferrous and radioactive deposits. Hydrogeological information - on fracture systems and groundwater table topography - can also be disclosed that may affect landfill construction.
