Abstract
The manual describes and references the methods, tests, and procedures involved in closing a site in such a manner that minimizes the need for further maintenance, and control, minimizes, and eliminates, to the extent necessary to protect human health and the environment, post-closure escape of hazardous waste, hazardous waste constituents, leachate, contaminated rainfall, or waste decomposition products to ground-water, surface waters, or the atmosphere. Problems that have been overlooked in abandoned surface impoundments and have caused environmental degradation are discusses. The techniques involved are pertinent to closing an impoundment either by removing the hazardous waste or by consolidating the waste on-site and securing the site at a landfill. Technical criteria for implementing the closure-specifically those regarding aspects substantially different from a landfill, are given relevant literature or procedures are documented for more in-depth review as necessary.
