The document provides information on the properties of geotextiles (engineering fabrics) and on the potential uses of geotextiles at hazardous waste sites. While primarily intended to assist those involved in the design of remedial measures for uncontrolled hazardous waste landfills, the design procedures and criteria set forth could prove equally useful to those designing controlled land disposal facilities. This report is also intended to be a source of technical information to aid regulatory personnel in evaluating designs submitted for approval. Subjects discussed include the types of fabrics and related products currently available, the various functions of these fabrics, test methods for evaluating potential fabric performance, recommended design procedures for using geotextiles and related products in drainage and erosion control systems, and recommended installation procedures for the various applications.
