This manual describes the methods, tests, and procedures involved in closing a site to minimize potential environmental hazards. Included is a discussion of the considerations that have been overlooked in abandoned impoundments that have caused severe environmental insults. The techniques involved are pertinent to closing an impoundment either by removing the hazardous wastes or by consolidating the waste onsite and securing the site as a landfill. Technical criteria for implementing the closure, specifically, those regarding aspects substantially different from a landfill, are given.
