A laboratory study was conducted to evaluate the potential of selected grouts for controlling the percolation of leachates from hazardous solid waste landfills or hazardous waste ponds. In the course of the study, seven different grouts were subjected to permeability tests and four of the grouts were tested for their reactivity by an immersion type test. Eight different chemicals, some with two concentrations, and two real-site wastes were used as permeants in the permeability tests, and as liquids for the immersion baths. Based on the comparison of permeability and reactivity test results, a scheme was proposed to correlate the permeability changes of grouts to the weight and consistency changes that may occur during their reactivity testing.
