Town of Lynn Lake Solid Waste Disposal Ground

The Town of Lynn Lake solid waste disposal ground (SWDG) was located in a mine tailings area, posing a variety of potential health and environmental issues. A Manitoba Innovation, Energy and Mines, in cleaning up toxic mine tailing sites, required the closure of the SWDG.

A new SWDG was needed to provide Lynn Lake and Marcel Colomb First Nation with an environmentally responsible facility with designated compounds for various wastes, including asbestos.

JRCC’s innovative design addressed challenges and complexities posed by porous sandy soils with a geomembrane liner and leachate collection and storage system, thus protecting the environment by preventing contamination.
