Jamestown landfill to close
Sukut Construction, Inc. broke ground in July on a $5.9
million project to re-close the Jamestown Landfill.
This closure project is critical for Tuolumne County
as they face stiff fines from the state of California
if the problem isn’t resolved by the end of the year.
Sukut, which has successfully completed more than 50
major landfill projects, including the closure of six
sites, has installed more than 40 million square feet
of landfill liner.
Sukut will be required to reconfigure grades over 18
acres of the landfill, relocate about 100,000 cubic yards
of refuse, and finally reconstruct the liner, drainage
layer and soil cover layers for the project. The project
will create a soil buttress on one edge, and install
surface drainage features as well as new gas wells.
