The Brady Road Resource Management Facility (BRRMF) is a landfill site in the south end of Winnipeg that has been in operation since 1973. In 2009, the Province of Manitoba enacted Bill 15, The Climate Change and Emissions Reductions Act, that required a plan to be submitted to the Minister indicating how an owner of a landfill plans to monitor landfill emissions, and control, collect or use the landfill gases before they are released to the atmosphere.
As a result of this regulatory requirement, the City retained Integrated Gas Recovery Services Inc. (IGRS) in 2012 to design, build and operate a landfill gas recovery & flaring system. Comcor conducted project management, design work, and construction supervision for system installation and currently operates and maintains the facility on behalf of IGRS. Comcor negotiated all approvals for the facility including those required by the Office of the Fire Commissioner. Plant construction began in November 2012 and was commissioned by August 2013 when full-time operations began. The collection system initially consisted of 42 vertical extraction wells.
In 2017, Comcor was retained to design a wellfield expansion, prepare tender documents and oversee construction administration. Currently, there are 86 wells that are providing on the order of 1,000 cfm of landfill gas to the flare. In 2019, Comcor was retained to design, prepare tender documents and oversee the construction of an expansion to the header and leachate collection system. In 2020/21 approximately 70 leachate pumps were installed in gas wells to help improve gas collection.
