Slurry walls are used at Superfund sites to contain the waste or contamination and to reduce the potential of future migration of waste constituents. In many cases slurry walls are used in conjunction with other waste treatment technologies, such as covers and ground water pump-and-treat systems. This bulletin discusses various aspects of slurry walls including their applicability, limitations on their use, a description of the technology including innovative techniques, and materials of construction including new alternative barrier materials, site requirements, performance data, the status of these methods, and sources of further information.
