The city of Rockland, Maine is installing over 1/3 of a mile of gas-collecting pipelines in their landfill, the PenBay Pilot reports. The goal, said Acting City Manager Tom Lutrell, is to minimize the odor coming from the area, and the City expects to complete the project by the end of October. In 2012, the city installed a system to burn off gasses emitted by the landfill, according to the Bangor Daily News.
