A relatively recent development in sanitary landfill design technology is the use of barriers to inhibit the movement of leachate into water sources. Many materials have been proposed and used as barriers to line land disposal sites. This paper discusses the use of natural soils, asphalt treatments, polymeric membranes, and treated soils as liner materials. Material properties, construction methods, costs, future materials, and leak detection are discussed. For each liner material, a construction specification is included.
