Epsilon works on multiple wheelabrator projects in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts including Millbury, North Andover, and Saugus. In Millbury we installed and currently operate a meteorological monitoring system for a Municipal Solid Waste Combustor. Epsilon collects the data per the MassDEP’s on-site recordkeeping requirements. Epsilon is responsible for maintaining and calibrating the system as well as downloading and performing quality assurance for the meteorological data. Quarterly data reports are prepared which detail any significant events during the monitoring period, calibration efforts and valid data recovery rates.
Epsilon also conducts dispersion modeling to determine the air quality impacts of dioxins, furans, and metals associated with operation, which are compared to the Massachusetts’ annual Allowable Ambient Limit and the 24-hour average Threshold Effects Exposure Limit values.
