This report is the third interim report of a project that aims to assess the effects upon various liner materials of extended contact with leachate from simulated sanitary landfills. In this part of the study, the primary exposure tests of liner specimens at the bottom of simulated landfills were supplemented by immersion of 28 different polymeric materials in sanitary landfill leachate. Immersed membranes were tested for changes in physical properties, permeability, and water absorption. The results of the immersion tests generally confirm the earlier results for membrane liner materials exposed for one year in simulated landfills. Also reported are results of the water vapor permeability testing of 28 membrane liners, the water absorption of a series of membranes at room temperature and at 70C, and the retrieval and testing of samples of a 6-year old membrane liner from a demonstration landfill. The monitoring of the simulated landfills during 180 months of operation is described and the analyses of the leachates produced during the period of operation are summarized. A simple bag test for assessing permeability and physical properties of membrane liners for landfills is described and test results are presented.
