GeoStructures was retained by the Town of Babylon, Department of Environmental Control to review design changes for the proposed expansion of the landfill in Babylon, Long Island, New York. The proposed landfill expansion would reclaim an existing stormwater recharge basin by replacing it with hydraulic fill so that the expansion could be built on top. The original design utilized traditional leaching rings for stormwater management. However, lack of storage capacity led to the design change to an underground stormwater detention system (USDS) made up of modular polypropylene units called RainTanks. GeoStructures’ tasks included review and determination of the effects of the new underground stormwater detention system (USDS); perform necessary analysis to ensure that the new USDS is in compliance with NYCRR Part 360 regulations; provide recommendations for construction, and preparation of a comprehensive report for submittal to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC).
