The report provides current technological information on liner and cover systems for waste storage and disposal units. The various materials used in the construction of these systems are discussed, with particular emphasis on polymeric flexible membrane liners. The types and properties of wastes that may be impounded in land storage and disposal units and the constituents of these wastes that can affect lining materials are discussed. The conditions inside a containment unit are described. Elements of the design, specification, construction, quality assurance, and maintenance of a lined waste containment unit are discussed. Costs for the components of a lining system, including their installation and construction, are presented. Several test methods are included.
