Exposed Geomembrane Cover Design & Permitting

New River Solid Waste Association

Coolness Factor:

We prepared an alternate procedures application and Florida Department of Environmental Protection approved the request to submit a permit application for an exposed geomembrane cover closure. FDEP approved the design and construction permit application. This is the first of its kind in Florida.


Jones Edmunds provided design and permitting engineering services using an EGC closure system for the NRRL. Phase I of the EGC closure project included preparing the final grade slopes, installing the geosynthetic material, constructing a toe-drain system, and lining the adjacent perimeter stormwater ponds. We prepared bid documents, provided construction administrative services, coordinated Construction Quality Assurance (CQA) material testing, and provided full-time CQA resident observation during construction of Phase I.
