A critical part of the sequence of designing, constructing, and maintaining an effective cover over solid and hazardous waste is the evaluation of engineering plans. Such evaluation is an important function of regulating agencies, and accompanying documentation can form one basis for issuing or denying a permit to the owner/operator of the waste disposal facility. The manual describes 39 steps in evaluation of plans submitted for approval. Generally, the evaluator considers available soils, site conditions, details of cover design, and post-closure maintenance and contingencies.
