Landfill Remediation Program

In 2013, the WY Legislature created the Landfill Remediation Program (Program, LRP).  The Program was enacted to address open and closed landfills throughout the state wherein, upon installation of adequate groundwater monitoring networks, it was determined that landfill activities were impacting groundwater. 

Annual Reports

Annual reports produced by LRP provide the priority list of landfills needing remediation, summarize the ongoing LRP activities and results, and provide estimated costs of remediation at high priority landfills.

This Program provides grant funding to facilities upon entry into the Program.  Funding is provided at a level of 75% grant with a 25% facility match.  Additionally, the State remains a funding partner on projects for the first 10 years of the selected remedy. 

The Department developed a ranking process to prioritize impacted landfills. The Program priority list is revised annually as work is conducted and as additional monitoring data is collected and analyzed.  An annual report is prepared to track Program progress and is submitted to the Joint Minerals and Economic Development Committee every June.
