Any project built at the RTS has to be done in conjunction with the State Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), who is responsible for insuring that closed and capped landfills do not pose an environmental threat.  The system can be engineered to insure that the integrity of the landfill cap is maintained. Because the landfill has been closed for many years, the area is considered to be stable.The pollutant monitoring system that is already in place will not be affected.

The landfill is closed and capped to prevent pollution, but will this project harm the landfill cap and lead to pollutant leaks?
