Kerdiffstown Park Project
Kildare County Council
Co. Kildare, Ireland
The remediation works at the Kerdiffstown site present a number of significant environmental and planning implications for the project. Some of these challenges include the strict adherence to conditions of the Industrial Emissions Licence (P1063-01), as set out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as well as planning conditions issued by An Bord Pleanála.
During the construction works, it is important that we correctly manage emissions such as odour, landfill gas, leachate, noise, vibration, groundwater and the reprofiling of waste body across the site, which is needed to achieve the required levels and surfaces for the permanent landfill capping works.
The installation of wastewater and leachate transfer pipelines from the site to the nearest wastewater pumping station is a significant project task, as this will involve directional drilling under a live dual carriageway (N7) and the Morell River. It is also important to liaise regularly with the local residents and community to ensure that the works do not negatively impact upon them.
The site occupies approximately 30 hectares and the works include the construction of a new access road; reprofiling and shaping the waste body; demolition and site clearance; installation of an engineered capping system across the site; installation of new environmental management and control systems including leachate and landfill gas. This will enable our client to deliver a public park with multi-use sports pitches, car parking, changing room building, children’s playground and a network of paths across the site and transform the site into a valuable amenity.
