emblems - SCIA Cell 10 Landfill Construction

Construction of upgrades and improvements to the Salem County Solid Waste Facility, Cell 10 Landfill Construction, Alloway Township, Salem County, New Jersey, in the amount of $8,500,000, were financed by the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Financing Program (NJEIFP).  The NJEIFP is a State Revolving Fund program jointly administered by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust (Trust) and uses a combination of funds provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the DEP, and the Trust to provide very low interest loans to borrowers for environmental infrastructure projects.

This Project will provide water quality benefits by construction of a double-composite lined landfill cell with leachate collection and pumping systems to preserve groundwater quality while providing municipal solid waste disposal capacity for residents and businesses in Salem County, New Jersey.

State Revolving Fund programs around the nation provide states and communities the resources necessary to maintain and improve the infrastructure protecting our valuable water resources nationwide.
