Specifications include, but are not limited to:
Routine Scheduled Maintenance:
Conduct a routine scheduled site visit every two months for a total of 18 visits in a thirtysix month period.
Check the operation and maintenance of the blower/flare station during each visit
o Damage and noticeable operational deficiencies will be noted
o Gas quality measurements will be taken at the main gas header/and or the flare
inlet using a Landtec GEM landfill gas analyzer or other appropriate landfill gas
o Provide description of any major issues with the blower/flare station
o Make changes to the flare operation schedule for optimal operation based on
landfill gas production.
Collect the following data during each site visit:
o Landfill gas flow
o Landfill gas composition (percentages of methane, carbon dioxide, oxygen and
o Main inlet header vacuum
o Flare temperature
Conduct scheduled maintenance in accordance with the Perennial Energy Operation &
Maintenance Manual for a 13.5 MMBtu/h Enclosed Gas Flare Station for the Flanders
Road Landfill (April 2002) Maintenance Schedule. Note: The Department will perform
the daily checks indicated in Maintenance Schedule.
Prepare a brief letter report monthly, detailing activities occurring each month including
daily flare operations from the Department’s weekly checklist report. The letter report
shall include temperature and flow readings of the flare and Criteria Pollutant Emissions
Calculations: calculated flare stack emissions of particulate matter (PM), sulfur dioxide
(SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as non-methane organic compounds (NMOC), and carbon monoxide (CO) as compared to the allowable
limits in the Flanders Road Landfill Modified Permit for Municipal Solid Waste Landfill
Gas Collection and Control System dated January 2, 2013. The letter report shall also
include monthly and annual volumetric landfill gas flow rate to the enclosed flare and
annual emissions calculated over a rolling 12-month period for the Criteria Pollutant
Emissions Calculations as required in the Modified Permit. Each letter shall be
submitted to the Department within 30 days of the end of the previous month to meet the
record keeping requirement in the Modified Permit.
