Monitoring of Scarpino Landfill

| Name: Scarpino Landfill | Location: Scarpino (GE) | Start of the monitoring: July 2016  | Client: S.G.I. S.r.l. |    | Responsible for monitoring: S.G.I S.r.l. |

The landfill of Scarpino (GE) is a leading waste collection centre, which now is closed. The site has movements which affect the storage of waste, mainly related to their compaction. For real-time monitoring of the slope deformations, a MUMS system was installed in July 2016. A second chain was installed in June 2017.
The site is instrumented with a chain 32 m long, equipped with 57 tilt sensors Tilt Link V (spaced 50 cm) and 7 high resolution multi-parametric tilt sensors Tilt Link HR 3D V. The second chain is 32 m long, equipped with 48 Tilt Link V and 15 Tilt Link HR 3D V.
Control unit queries nodes at defined time intervals and saves them into a SD card. Data are transmitted with UMTS connection to the elaboration centre, where an automatic software elaborates them. Results are available on a web platform in a few minutes.
