Having successfully anchored the capping using the long reach excavator we expect the work in the southeast corner of the site to be completed today. We are also confident that the three new pin wells will be connected to the existing infrastructure and will start collecting landfill gas from this area.
This concludes the planned capping works and we will continue to monitor the site to ensure that there are no further areas that require attention.
We are now entering in to early conversations with the Environment Agency to develop a plan that will enable us to start to accept waste back into the site. It is unlikely that this will happen for a couple of weeks and we will update as plans are agreed.
