Solid Waste Management CIP Project
Orange County Solid Waste hosted two community engagement meetings to discuss the current CIP Project. Both meetings discussed the closure of Bradshaw Quarry Rd. and Ferguson Rd. Waste & Recycling Centers and the proposed location of the new Waste & Recycling Center.

Site Assessment Information
TRC Engineering has been hired to conduct the following:
- Mark or Flag the perimeter of the Property improvements; this will begin on October 9, 2023.
- Markings will be colored flagging tied to existing vegetation or stakes to be set at approximate 50 ft. intervals (or less as needed) and at corners or changes in direction.
- Conduct Soil and Groundwater Environmental Analysis: Date to be determined. Once a date has been determined, OCSWM will notify NIM participants via email and post on the Solid Waste Management website.
- TRC will mobilize to the site of the proposed Orange County Solid Waste facility to conduct an assessment of existing soil and groundwater conditions.
- The purpose of our assessment will be to identify baseline (background) soil and ground water conditions and evaluate potential impacts (if any) from the residuals spray irrigation field 11-8 currently operated by Orange Water and Sewer Authority.
TRC’s assessment will consist of the advancement of two soil borings on the northern and southern portions of the site and the installation of two temporary groundwater monitoring wells. If access is possible, the borings will be advanced with a truck-mounted Geoprobe® Direct Push Technology (DPT) rig. If access is an issue, TRC may choose to complete the borings utilizing a hand auger and manual labor. Based on TRC’s knowledge of the regional groundwater elevations in the vicinity of the site, it is anticipated that groundwater will be encountered at a depth of 10-15 feet below land surface (bls). TRC will collect a composite soil sample from each boring at four-foot intervals from acetate sleeves until groundwater is encountered. Upon collection of the soil and water samples, TRC will transfer the soil and water samples into laboratory-supplied containers, and submit the samples to a North Carolina-certified lab for analyses of the following:
Oil and grease
Chemical Oxygen Demand
TKN (as N)
Oil and Grease
Total Dissolved Solids
Total Organic Carbon
Following sample collection, TRC will abandon the wells in accordance with 15A NCAC 02C.0113
- Preliminary Traffic Investigation & Traffic Impact Analysis: Date has not been determined. When a date is determined, OCSWM will notify NIM participants via email and post on the Solid Waste Management website.
