This report presents four major topics related to the permittee's responsibilities during construction,operation, and closure of a hazardous waste disposal facility: (1) geotechnical parameters that should be tested and/or observed, (2) selection of sampling methods and sample sizes for the geotechnical parameters, (3) laboratory and field testing methods for investigating geotechnical parameters, (3) laboratory and field testing methods for investigating geotechnical parameters, and (4) a quality assurance program suited to the unique responsibilities of the permittee. The purpose of the report is to provide technical background for use by permittees, designers, specifiers, quality assurance engineers, and permit writers for hazardous waste disposal facilities. The document addresses the quality control aspects of construction, operation, and closure of a hazardous waste disposal facility (it is assumed that the quality aspects of site selection, characterization, and design have already been managed). Types of facilities covered by the report include landfills, surface impoundments, waste piles, and land treatment units.
