The existing Class 2 freezeback solid waste landfill is at capacity and requires expansion to maintain uninterrupted solid waste disposal services for Barrow. The Barrow Landfill was designed with the assumption that the Thermal Oxidation System (TOS), an incinerator, would be operational and reduce the volume of fill entering the landfill. Cell 1 of the landfill has prematurely filled due to the TOS explosion in 2009 with sporadic operation since. Large Barrow cleanup projects have also consumed space in the landfill earlier than expected.  The existing landfill needs to formally transition to Phase II and Phase III of development. This includes closure of Active Cell 1, completion of Active Cell 2, construction of a supporting working pad (Cell 3), and construction of Cell 4. Supplemental activities include installation of thermal monitoring wells for Cell 2 and updating wells for Cell 1. The landfill perimeter fence has become damaged from drifting snow and will also need to be repaired.North Slope Borough proposes to place 62,000 cubic yards of clean gravel fill material into 8.5 acres of wetlands. Twelve phases of development exist for this landfill. This project would construct the infrastructure for Phase II and Phase III.
