Installation of Landfill Gas Generators at West Camden Sanitary Landfill

Benton County, Tennessee

On October 31, 2011 TVA completed an environmental assessment (EA) and issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for a proposed power purchase agreement for electricity generated at the West Camden Sanitary Landfill.  

Waste Management Renewable Energy LLC is planning to construct and operate three landfill gas-fueled generators, with a total capacity of 4.8 megawatts at the facility.  The new generators would be installed in a previously disturbed area adjacent to the existing landfill.  The EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the construction of the new generators and associated auxiliary systems and the operation of the generating facility.
