Document Description
The project is the approval of Explanation of Significant differences (ESD) for modifying the existing groundwater treatment system at the GBF/Pittsburg Landfill. Pumped groundwater was treated within two 11,000-gallon steel bioreactor tanks in series. In 2006, due to corrosion of the welds in bioreactor tanks, the tanks were removed from the site. After re-evaluation of the bioreactor technology, and it was determined that carbon filtration was a more appropriate treatment approach. Two 1,000-pound carbon vessels were installed at the Site in place of the bioreactor tanks to treat the pumped groundwater.
