The design and permitting of solid waste disposal and processingfacilities (landfills and transfer stations) is a major component of SITEC’s work. SITEC provides all of the professional engineering and environmental assessment capabilities required to design, permit and monitor these facilities. These capabilities include civil, environmental and sanitary engineering, survey, hydro-geological assessment, groundwater and soil gas sampling and monitoring and construction over sight (Construction Quality Assurance or “CQA” services).

SITEC engineers have a comprehensive working knowledge of all local, state and federal regulations applicable to the design, construction, operation and closure of solid waste facilities. These regulations include the MA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Solid Waste Management regulations and the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) regulations for preparing Draft and Final Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs). We maintain open, productive relationships with regulatory agencies to facilitate communication and to streamline the permitting process.

SITEC works closely with clients to realize the ultimate goal of any solid waste facility permitting project - the receipt of the necessary permits. Our designs are prepared to satisfy both regulatory requirements and owner/operator objectives. In addition to the design of new facilities, SITEC also develops innovative approaches to increase available air space, to extend operating life, and to address operating concerns such as internal slope stability, leachate collection, and the installation of overlay liner systems.
