Landfill fire damage being evaluated
Riggs doesn't have an estimated cost of damages, but he doesn't believe it will be too costly.
"We're doing some exploratory work to see what the extent is," he said.
Workers capped the damaged wells and the city is working with its consultant to determine how to best perform repairs.
Riggs expects repairs to begin next week. The gas collection system will not operate at capacity until the repairs are made, he said.
Monday's fire was one of the biggest at the landfill in recent years. It sent dense smoke through the Milton Avenue business district and homes in its path.
No one was injured.
No cause has been determined for the fire, which was described as a surface fire.
