Hallaton representatives Courtney McGee and Mike Joslin attended WASTECON 2018, which was held in Nashville, TN from August 20–23, 2018. This annual conference provided wonderful opportunities for networking and learning the latest in the industry.
Check out the WASTECON 2018 highlight reel:
In 2012, Loyola University Maryland clinched the NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse National Championship. The triumphant team brought the winning medal back to their home field—Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. Less than a decade earlier, however, that athletic field was hosting a different kind of metal—scrap metal, from a landfill.
The athletic complex is partially situated on top of a former municipal solid waste landfill, but the location is perfect. It is conveniently located near Loyola’s campus and I-83, but there have been challenges with the field.
This publicly-owned municipal solid waste landfill, which accepts residential and commercial curbside trash, is the lone landfill in the area. The landfill is situated on 375 acres, of which 195 acres are utilized for solid waste placement. Subcells and phases are constructed over the course of time while the landfill is operational.
Hallaton is proud to have installed a temporary cofferdam lining at the iconic Baltimore location of Druid Hill Park in June 2018.
Druid Hill has a fresh water reservoir that supplies Baltimore City and the surrounding counties with drinking water. The city is in the midst of a 5-year, $160 million dollar project to modify the Druid Hill Reservoir.
Currently, Druid Hill Reservoir is an exposed water storage system. As a result of new governmental drinking water regulations to keep the drinking water protected from potential contaminants, the city plans to install two large underground tanks. This will also allow the city to treat the water more efficiently.
Our office is located in Sparks, Maryland, right next to the Gunpowder Falls State Park. Heavy rain fell steadily over several days, and it caused the water level in the Gunpowder Falls to rise more than 15 feet higher than usual. On Wednesday, July 25th, our office flooded in a matter of minutes. Continue reading

Hallaton Environmental Linings of Sparks, MD, was contracted by Thalle Construction Company of Hillborough, NC, to provide and install the geosynthetics for a reservoir in Savannah, GA. This impoundment stores 100-million gallons of drinking water.
For this US Army Corps of Engineers project, Hallaton installed approximately 18 acres of 60 mil HDPE geomembrane and geocomposite. Additionally, approximately 10,000 LF of a 60 mil HDPE sand tube ballasting system was installed as part of the completed geosynthetic system. Hallaton fought through some less than ideal weather conditions to deliver this project on time and within budget. Continue reading
