The City of Corpus Christi began planning more than a decade ago to ensure that a new landfill would be ready to go when the old facility reached capacity. Kleinfelder was engaged to provide geotechnical investigation, construction materials testing services, and engineering oversight for the new $30 million state-of-the-art Cefe F. Valenzuela Landfill.
This state-of-the-art landfill meets stringent design, construction, and operation standards to comply with all regulatory standards and laws. Since the landfill opened, Kleinfelder has provided oversight and testing services for more than 35 acres of liner construction. Kleinfelder also installed monitor wells for water sampling and provides the ongoing reports required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
