The Eco Vista Sanitary Landfill is a regional solid waste facility owned and operated by Waste Management, serving the majority of the population of Northwest Arkansas. This site is a state-of-the-art Subtitle D facility that includes all environmental media including air, solid waste, and water management. Terracon staff has provided engineering services for the Eco Vista facilities since 1992. In that capacity, Terracon has provided a wide range of solid waste related services including solid waste permitting, construction quality control, groundwater monitoring, hydrogeologic analysis, and a wide range of compliance assistance project work.
Terracon designed and successfully permitted several of the expansions of the landfill to meet the most stringent local, state, and federal regulations. Permitting assistance included location standards analysis, hydrogeologic analysis, computer modeling, design, and construction quality control. State-of-the-art engineering aspects of composite liner design, computer modeling, material selection, and value engineering are continually incorporated into the permitting/construction process.
