Flexible membrane liners are increasingly being used to prevent leachate and other waste fluids generated at landfills, surface impoundments, and waste piles from entering the groundwater. The paper will describe the EPA's research program on treatment, storage and disposal facilities with emphasis on containment systems. The paper will identify landfill construction concerns and potential solutions to those concerns.
