Pasco County Landfill Leachate Injection Well

Project Description

Many communities across Florida are finding it more and more difficult to dispose of the millions of gallons of leachate generated annually by their landfills. Recognizing this, Pasco County turned to the partnership of JMG Engineering Inc/Hydrogeological Consultants LLC/ASRus LLC to permit, design, and provide construction oversight services of a new 3,300 foot deep underground injection well and associated leachate treatment system. Once operational in 2022, the well will be capable of safely disposing all of the leachate generated by the Ash Monofill and will save the County over $400,000 annually to haul and treat the leachate offsite.
