This report presents procedures for the engineering design and control of pulp and paper-mill sludge disposal landfills. Engineering design will allow more efficient use, thereby contributing to economic and environmental benefits. To form the basis for engineering design of sludge material, the methodologies and theories of soil mechanics were applied. The methodologies should be applicable to most compositions of sludge materials. Some sludge materials may have peculiarities associated with testing, field workability, and behavior. However, from accumulated experiences of applying the procedures of this manual, the manual can be adjusted and expanded. This report is specifically written for pulp and paper-mill personnel of technical background but with little or no exposure to the soil mechanics discipline.
