International Paper Company - Sprague, CT Landfill Closure

In Sprague, CT, International Paper Company hired E.T.& L. Corp. to cap and close their 17 acre paper sludge landfill. During the paper making process, a residual byproduct called paper sludge is left over and trucked to the landfill. With E.T.& L. Corp.'s prior experience working with paper sludge on other landfill projects,  this $2.7 million project was completed swiftly, in just eight months. The project called for multiple layer geo-synthetic capping materials as well as a vegetative support layer and topsoil and seeding.
