An inspection by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at the Ontario County Landfill last week revealed low gas emissions, according to Landfill Manager Brian Sanders.

During the two-day inspection, EPA representatives reviewed records, processes, and the gas-collection system, then tested emissions around the gas wells, according to a report to supervisors.

Sanders said that the EPA’s findings matched their own, showing emissions below the 500 parts per million threshold.
