"Land disposal units, such as landfills and surface impoundments, must comply with stringent requirements for liners, leak detection systems, and groundwater monitoring. The land disposal restrictions (LDR) provide a second measure of protection from threats posed by hazardous waste disposal. LDR provides that a hazardous waste cannot be place on the land until the waste is treated (or meets specific treatment standards) to reduce the mobility or toxicity of the hazardous constituents in the waste. This training module presents an overview of the land disposal restrictions program."--Introduction.
