The Michigan Dept. of Environmental Quality has posted a new page about the Arbor Hills Landfill. See air sampling reports, violation details and construction updates.
The DEQ did not include the more serious violation details from Arbor Hills Energy, the adjacent landfill gas-to-energy turbine plant owned and operated by Fortistar Methane Group. The gas collection facility has received violations for exceeding sulfur dioxide emission standards. The Environmental Protection Agency links short-term exposure to sulfur dioxide to an array of adverse respiratory effects.
