In 2005, CMEI commissioned an Independent External Review of the Crane Mountain Landfill by ADI Ltd., an award-winning Atlantic Canada engineering firm, with extensive landfill design and monitoring experience. This Review is available to review or download from the Reference Section of this web site.
In 2008, CMEI initiated a follow-up to the 2005 Review, which has been conducted by ADI engineers. This report assesses responses to recommendations made in 2005 and looks at several issues that were not included in the earlier document.
The 2009 ADI Update Independent External Review of the Crane Mountain Landfill was presented to the Fundy Region Solid Waste Commissioners, Counsellors from the City of Saint John and Grand Bay-Westfield, and officials from the Department of the Environment on November 17, 2009 at the KBM Community Centre. John Sims, Senior Hydrogeologist made the presentation.
To understand the essence of the review read the following 3 sections.
Follow-up with respect to the recommendations of the report are underway. A presentation was made to the FRSWC at their December meeting, and the CMEI Executive subsequently met with the General Manager.
FRSWC “Action Plan”
In August 2010 CMEI received an action plan for the FRSWC in response to the recommendations of the 2009 Update Review. The action plan is an operating document for the General Manager to use in planning actions in response to the 2009 Update Review. The dates on the plan are the dates that the General Manager plans to seek approval for the project from the Commission. As such, there is no actual commitment that any given recommendation will be approved and acted upon. To view the action plan click here. When reading the action plan refer to the specific recommendations on page 38 & 39 of the 2009 Update Review
