Dear Cheam Members,
We want to provide you with an update on the Cheam Landfill remediation project. The long-term project’s goal was and is to fix outstanding issues related to settlement and leachate. In the last year we’ve made significant progress with our team to ensure closure will happen this year.
Thanks to the engineers at Sperling Hansen Associates and environmental consultants at Rocky Point Environmental, we’ve put together important information and a timeline with the steps we’re taking to complete this project. As a result of this work, we estimate the Cheam Landfill will reach design capacity and the site will be closed by July 2021. The site will then be properly capped and closed to later be redeveloped.
We look forward to sharing the ongoing progress. You can find important information below that explains technical aspects and frequently asked questions. Please get in touch with our team if you have any questions.
