Contents Notes
"Geosynthetic compounds beneath and above hazardous waste materials in a landfill cell provide the primary separation between leachate generated within the cell and the surrounding environment. This report provides recommendations for the design of these geosynthetic components - the polymer flexible membrane liners, textiles, nets, grids, and composites used to limit the flow of leachate and used for the drainage and filtration components (the leak collection and removal system). Design guidance is also given for ancillary components including ramps, berms, and standpipes."
