  Original Published: 4/9/2014Richland County's closed Cairns Road landfill will soon undergo a project to remove the dirty groundwater that collects inside of it. The Solid Waste Management Authority is seeking bids for an Automated Leachate Extraction Manhole System project. Director Ken Bender says this project must be done as part of corrective measure agreement with the Ohio EPA. It involves connecting five wells, from which leachate is now pumped into trucks and hauled away, with the flowmeter line that sends the water from other areas of the landfill directly to Mansfield's wastewater treatment plant. Bender says the water must be removed to allow airspace for oxygen to decompose the trash, and to make room for methane to vent properly and not migrate off of the landfill property. The project will cost about $200,000, which is in the budget. Work starts this spring and will be done in August.
