Pipeline for Waste Water
This 3.3 mile pipeline starts at the leachate ponds by the Gas-to-Energy building and runs along the haul road to the compost facility, where it goes over the land in a dug trench to the shooting range at the Jackson County Sports Park. Here, it ties into the Rogue Valley sewer system.
At 2016 leachate generation rates, it would have taken 4,000 truckloads of waste water travelling by road — 11 truckloads a day — to carry the same amount of water that the pipeline carries today. This improves air quality in the area and reduces noise and truck traffic for nearby neighborhoods.
