Post-Closure Care

Post-Closure Care

Overview

Once site operations cease, facilities or units may have continuing Post-Closure Care requirements as defined by federal or state regulations. These requirements typically apply to municipal landfills or hazardous waste units and can include the inspection and maintenance of:

  • General site conditions;
  • Vegetation;
  • Soil caps and covers;
  • Site security;
  • Site benchmarks;
  • Site perimeter control; and
  • Other site-specific features.

HMI conducts routine inspections of closed facilities and units, properly documenting all information. Inspection results are recorded on site-specific inspection forms and are distributed electronically to all vested parties. This two-part documentation (paper and electronic) establishes consistent, reliable communication regarding these inspections. Poor communication and / or follow-through can lead to recurring system deficiencies. HMI will specifically focus on deficient items until they are effectively addressed and / or corrected.
