Heavy construction work related to installation of additional gas extraction wells (8 remaining to be drilled) and EVOH capping material on the North Quarry has stopped as a result of the inclement weather and is planned to restart in mid-February 2014, weather dependent. Work continues on the new leachate conveyance line and on the leachate pre-treatment facility including the four 1-million gallon leachate tanks.
