In addition, the Clean Air Act regulations also affect gas emissions from landfills. The JCL is inspected by the JCED air quality staff for compliance with the Clean Air Act.
Because of the volume and quality of gas production at the landfill, the use of the gas as an energy source was secured by a separate contractor, and an extensive gas collection system was installed and operational by the end of 1998. The landfill gas is collected, treated, and piped to a gas pipeline system located about one mile to the northwest of the landfill.
