Screening approach for landfill gas migration around landfill sites

Landfill gas migration risk may need to be considered when dealing with planning applications for new building development close to landfill sites, for Part IIA assessments of landfill sites or when considering the surrender of environmental permits. Installing monitoring wells outside the site in areas close to receptors or completing other monitoring (eg. internal monitoring) can be difficult, costly and cause unnecessary stress to nearby residents. It may also result in blight on properties. This paper describes a risk based framework that can be used to screen the landfill gas migration risk around old landfills.
