Kansas City Power & Light Iatan Phase II Utility Waste Landfill CQA

Location: Platte County, Missouri

Client: Kansas City Power & Light

Services: Environmental


Geotechnology has implemented a Construction Quality Assurance (CQA) plan for construction of two utility coal ash landfill cells. This included CQA for base subgrade, compacted clay liner, geomembrane, geocomposite, leachate collection system, and protective cover.

KC P&L Utility Waste Landfill Project Background

Two acceptance reports were submitted to and approved by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources which provided inspection and testing documentation.

Two utility landfill cells needed to be constructed concurrently due to the mandated clean closure of ash ponds on site and operational changes. A wet construction season and coordinating with multiple concurrent projects on-site also complicated the construction process. Geotechnology’s responsiveness and experience with similar projects provided real time solutions to issues that occurred during this large scale project.
