Fourteen construction sites where geomembranes were being installed were visited to observe subgrade preparation and liner installation techniques. These sites were visited during a study conducted for the U.S. EPA, Solid and Hazardous Waste Research Division. The sites included mine tailing disposal impoundments, landfills, potable water reservoirs, geothermal brine impoundments, evaporation impoundments, and industrial wastewater treatment impoundments. Six generic types of geomembrane materials were included in this study. They were (1) polyvinyl chloride (PVC); high density polyethylene (HDPE); (3) chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE); (4) chlorinated polyethylene (CPE); (5) Neoprene; and (6) ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). Observed subgrade preparation procedures and geomembrane installation techniques are described in this paper.
