The soon to be published non-hazardous land disposal regulation, RCRA sub title D (40 CFR Parts 257 and 258) must achieve three objectives. The first is to be protective of human health and the environment, second to be flexible so as not to stifle innovative designs, and third to allow individual states the latitude to develop state specific regulations. The containment systems (liners) currently under consideration will achieve these three goals. The paper will briefly discuss the approach to the liner design. Additional information will be forth coming as final decisions are made.
