Site Closure and Restoration Works

Egniol has been providing engineering and environmental services in relation to landfill site closure works at a former tin and copper mine in the south west of England since 2007. The site has been undergoing progressive completion and restoration work in readiness for handback to the Local Authority in accordance with the permit and planning requirements. The work has been wide ranging and covered most aspects of the engineering of former landfills prior to return to beneficial use.

In particular we have provided design and construction supervision services for the capping system construction; preparation of a Site Restoration Plant for the use of soil forming waste materials as a waste recovery operation; the creation of a wide range of ecological habitats to form heathland, native woodland, glades and acid and native grassland and integration into a fully functioning ecosystem; design and construction supervision of the surface water management system; design and construction supervision of the burial of approximately 18 kilometres of active landfill gas pipework and lowering of associated infrastructure such as gas manifolds and condensate de-watering points; the re-establishment of a 1.3-kilometre public bridleway across areas of the historical tin and copper mine and the landfill containment cells. Egniol designed and managed the construction of the bridleway following discussions with the Rights of Way officer, Mining Consultants and the British Horse Society.

Ecological Restoration Works Survey

Egniol are working with one of the UK’s top 3 waste operators on the ecological restoration of one of the largest landfill sites in the north west. Waste deposition at the site was completed a number of years ago and following an initial phase of limited restoration the site has remained dormant. Now that the site is to be returned to the land owners, restoration must be completed.

We will be carrying out baseline surveys of the site to help guide a revised restoration plan that will satisfy planning conditions and the land owners requirements, including the surveying of habitats, vegetation, mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. The revised scheme will aim to maximize the ecological value of the site and return it back to beneficial use.
