The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through its research and field experiences has developed control strategies for hazardous and municipal solid waste landfills and surface impoundments. The liner systems include double liners for hazardous waste and a single composite liner for municipal solid waste. The purpose of each individual component will be discussed with options for using natural in-situ materials or geosynthetics. Although natural soils are used as various components, emphasis has been placed on the use of geosynthetics, including geomembranes, geonets, geotextiles, and plastic pipes. Cover systems for both hazardous and municipal waste facilities are based on a multi-layer design. The multi-layer component characteristics, including performance, thickness and material type will be discussed. These designs include both natural soils and geosynthesis. Current programs and techniques used in the United states will be discussed.
