Elliott and Gredell Present at MWCC Conference

GREDELL Engineering Resources, Inc. staff recently presented at the Missouri Waste Control Coalition (MWCC) conference.  The theme for this year’s conference was “Balancing Environment and Economy.”

Grant Elliott, of GREDELL Engineering Resources, Inc., presented Groundwater Monitoring System Design – Use What You Learned in School! at the conference.  The presentation focused on how optimized well screen placement within the zone of interest is imperative, and a thorough understanding of the subsurface is necessary during the design and installation of groundwater monitoring systems.

Mr. Elliott has a B.S. in Geological Science from University of Missouri-Columbia and has been working in private consulting for 2 years.  His area of expertise includes environmental geology, engineering geology, geomorphology, geographic information systems, remote sensing, and hydrogeology.

Thomas R. Gredell, P.E., of GREDELL Engineering Resources, Inc. presented So You Want to Develop a NEW, GREENFIELD Municipal Solid Waste Landfill at the conference.  The presentation highlighted how the total number of Municipal Solid Waste Landfills in Missouri continues to shrink.  In the 1980’s there were over 100 operating landfills.  By the late 1990’s, that number had shrunk to around 75 operating landfills.  Many more closed in the next 10 years as the permitted landfill capacity filled up or as other Subtitle D requirements caught up with them.  Suddenly, the number of operating landfills was 25 or less and now, fewer than 20!  Somewhere in the future a NEW municipal landfill site will need to be permitted.  This presentation also addressed the numerous questions that must be answered prior to breaking ground on a new landfill based on almost 40 years of experience, 100’s of landfill site assessments and past project success.

Mr. Gredell has an M.S. in Civil Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri – Rolla) and has almost 40 years of regulatory experience in solid waste, hazardous waste, wastewater treatment and general civil engineering.  He maintains thorough understanding of Missouri laws and regulations through his participation in various organizations, committees and workgroups.
