SUBSURFACE LANDFILL FIRE
SUPPRESSION AND MONITORING
A Case Study at the Campbell
Mountain Landfill, Penticton, British Columbia
As mentioned previously, initial temperature readings and gas
concentration measurements were collected in the North Ravine
to establish background and initial conditions, and to provide
a benchmark for the comparison of future monitoring.
A) Initial Temperature
The temperatures were obtained by installing each Thermistor in
the appropriate well and allowing at least one hour for the string
to equilibrate. The Thermistors were then removed from the wells
in order to prevent any possible damage or loss during the installation
of the clay cover.
temperature monitoring continued
