    Notes:  On Sept. 25, 2013, department staff monitoring air quality approximately 2 miles from Bridgeton   Landfill detected an odor containing benzene and hydorgen sulfide above background levels for a period of less than 10 minutes.  The odor was determined not to be related to the Bridgeton Landfill.  The odor composition was inconsistent with the Bridgeton subsurface smoldering event. 

    On Sept. 26, 2013, department staff monitoring air quality approximately 2 miles from Bridgeton Landfill detected benzene above background level for approximately 10 minutes.  The odor indicated nearby construction activity was likely the source and benzene was no longer detected at noon when construction activities ceased.  The wind direction at the time of detection was from the southeast and not from the direction of Bridgeton Landfill.

    March 16 - April 23, 2013

    As of March 19, as part of the next phase of air sampling, the department has retained an expert contractor to assist with air sampling and laboratory analytical services. The analysis of data provided to date indicates that certain compounds warrant additional enhanced sampling and analysis which the department’s contractor will provide. This is necessary as the continuous screening equipment capabilities are limited and groups similar compounds into a single reported value. As examples, the reporting of hydrogen sulfide includes other reduced sulfur compounds and the reporting of volatile organic compounds groups many hydrocarbons together. In future, laboratory samples will be collected to separate individual compounds through enhanced sampling and analysis to determine the exact constituent(s) of concern and appropriate screening level(s).

    March 13, 2013

    On March 13, the department collected SUMMA® canister air samples in the vicinity of the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill following elevated odors generated during gas extraction well drilling activities. Samples were collected at three locations. The department shared the air sampling data with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services for further evaluation.

    Feb., 2013

    During the month of Feb., the department collected continuous screening data using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's VIPER® communications package with existing department air sampling equipment.  The data collected by this system was stored on EPA servers and provided to the department on Feb. 28.  There were more than 5.5 million records collected.  The data was then provided to the Department of Health and Senior Services for analysis.

    Feb. 15, 2013

    On Feb. 15, the department performed air sampling using SUMMA® canisters in response to odors associated with drilling of a new gas extraction well. While drilling the gas extraction well, the drill encountered a pocket of pressurized landfill gas below the ground's surface at about a 100 foot depth. The presence of such a pocket of landfill gas in a landfill experiencing a subsurface smoldering event is not unexpected. In this instance, the drill rig was affected requiring repair that resulted in a short-term increase in the intensity of odors. When Bridgeton/Republic notified the department of the increase in odors, the air sampling was performed. The air samples collected included two downwind locations, one of which was near a residential area approximately 1,500 feet from the landfill. The third sample was collected from an upwind location.

    Feb. 4 -5, 2013

    On Feb. 4 and 5, the department performed air sampling using SUMMA® canisters to identify possible odor constituents and levels of volatile organic compounds. Cartridges with sampling pumps were used to collect samples that were analyzed for aldehydes. Air samples downwind of the landfill were collected from six locations in the vicinity of the landfill, including locations in a residential area.

    Feb. 2, 2013

    On Feb. 2, 2013, the department employed air sampling equipment at six locations around Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill to assess the current air quality. Continuous air sampling was conducted from early morning to late evening using an AreaRAE system. This system is equipped with a wireless radio frequency modem that allows data transmissions to a remotely based controller. The multi-sensor system is equipped for photoionization detection of volatile organic compounds, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide and gamma radiation.

    Feb. 1, 2013

    On Feb. 1, 2013, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources issued an Order to Republic Services, which owns Bridgeton, stating the department would immediately begin collecting air sampling data at the landfill. The Order also instructed the company to pay for costs associated with this data collection and to provide the department access to the facility property for data collection operations.
