In December 2012, the EPA released new guidelines for the rehabilitation and aftercare of closed landfills. These guidelines will apply to landfills nearing the end of operation and already closed landfills, where environmental risks or impacts require ongoing aftercare and monitoring. There are important aspects for planners in dealing with closed landfill and land uses encroaching on these facilities.
Presentations will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion and networking session.
