SEMS was contracted to perform capping work and install a slurry wall to mitigate the potential for any seeps to migrate from the East Landfill. The landfill was formerly used by ALCOA and Kaiser for disposal of bauxite mud (red mud) in the process of making aluminum. The landfill was closed in 1982. SEMS implemented a design to isolate leachate within the facility and prevent the potential for off-site migration of leachate. The plan included installation of a slurry wall along the down gradient eastern boundary of the landfill, and an extension of the landfill cap to include to assure no offsite migration of leachate.
