The Town of Hempstead called upon H2M to provide a boundary survey of the 75-acre Merrick Landfill. The survey was needed to comply with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) approval process.
The site’s landscape is diverse and challenging, with 28 acres containing eight different buildings, truck scales, curbed interior roadways, and parking fields, as well as approximately 47 acres of landfill. The property is also bounded by Merrick Bay on the south and the Meadowbrook State Parkway to the west. Through a combination of conventional survey techniques, global positioning system (GPS), and aerial photography, H2M completed a thorough survey that satisfied the DEC’s approval requirements and could also be used for future site improvements and upgrades.
