While modern landfills are constructed with liners so that harmful substances won’t leach into the surrounding environment, the town of Salisbury was home to the last unlined landfill in the state. Salisbury’s Landfill on Upper Plains Road was a regular local destination where townspeople would often run into each other, but residents understood the dangers an unlined landfill posed to their town and voted to close it at a recent town meeting. Otter Creek Engineering worked with the Town to put together a landfill closure plan and ensured the contractor complied with State requirements during the closure process.
