This project was focused on the performance, design, testing and selection of filters used for leachate collection drains at the base of landfills, waste piles and other solid waste facilities. Geotextiles due to their manufactured uniformity, ease of placement and savings in landfill volume were emphasized, although soil filters consisting of natural sand were also evaluated. Field exhuming of 4 sites indicated that problems existed at 3 of them. All 3 cases were 'socked pipe' where a geotextile was wrapped around perforated pipes. Conversely, moving the geotextile away from the pipe, e.g., in a trench wrap configuration, gave acceptable performance at the fourth site. Even further, the laboratory testing portion of the study indicated that an open geotextile over the entire footprint of the solid waste facility is the proper design strategy and thus recommended for general use.
