This manual provides guidance in the selection of available engineering technology to reduce or eliminate leachate generation at existing dumps and landfills. The manual emphasizes remedial measures for use during or after closure of landfills and dumps which do not meet current environmental standards. Most of the techniques discussed in the report deal with the reduction or elimination of infiltration into landfills in one of five categories, active groundwater or plume management, chemical immobilization of wastes, and excavation and reburial. The technology presented is widely used in construction but has not necessarily as yet been applied to landfill closure.
