Waste containment structures have been around for several tens of years. They have only recently been lined with geosynthetics. It is important that these structures will withstand the environmental threats as well as the consequences of the wastes they contain. This presentation will discuss those techniques and procedures for recovering samples from the targets of opportunity. These techniques include the non-standard methods of obtaining field samples from lagoons. The procedures include those analysis of the field samples to determine what the material has been exposed to and how this relates to the federal regulations.
