Nov. 2, 2018 - Update: Staff from the department’s Environmental Emergency Response Section responded to the fire at the Bridgeton Landfill. Department investigations and discussions with Fire Department staff verified the fire has been extinguished. Department staff conducted air monitoring and found no air emission levels of public concern. The source of the fire was verified to be an aboveground condensate trap, which is a component of the landfill gas collection system. Discussions with Fire Department staff and field observations verified the fire was isolated to the immediate area around that condensate trap. Bridgeton Landfill staff are currently working to make repairs. While repairs are being made, there may be a potential for off-site odors. Department staff will continue to monitor the repairs and coordinate as appropriate.

Nov. 2, 2018 – A fire was reported to the department’s Solid Waste Management Program staff by Bridgeton Landfill staff early this evening. The fire is believed to be caused by a pump that overheated in an aboveground condensate trap near the southwest corner of the landfill’s South Quarry. Bridgeton Landfill staff isolated the condensate trap from other landfill infrastructure and the local fire department responded to extinguish the fire. Bridgeton Landfill staff and contractors then covered the area with soil as a precaution, and are evaluating the nearby infrastructure for repair. The Department’s Environmental Emergency Response staff are responding and monitoring the situation.
