Failure, caused by a variety of mechanisms, is common to drainage systems of all kinds. Leachate collection and cap drainage systems, which remove excess liquid from hazardous waste land disposal facilities, are no exception. Failure of these systems, however, may be a greater cause for concern than failure, for example, of agricultural drainage systems. This is especially true for leachate collection systems at hazardous waste disposal facilities. Undetected failures may cause leachate to build up on top of the liner. This can lead to failure of the liner system and contamination of groundwater.
