This handbook is directed toward technical personnel in federal, state, regional, and municipal agencies involved in the cleanup of hazardous waste disposal sites, industrial surface impoundments, and municipal, industrial, and combined landfills. It contains a summary of the flow of contaminants from a land disposal site, the remedial actions available for site cleanup, and a methodology by which a preliminary remedial action plan can be developed for a specific site. It also includes discussions on remedial actions applicable to surface flow control, groundwater control, leachate control, gas migration control, direct treatment of land disposal wastes, and cleanup of contaminated sewers, water pipes, and sediments. Its objectives are to provide detailed information including a general description, applications, design, construction, and/or operating considerations, advantages and disadvantages, and installation and annual operating costs, with an example where possible. An appendix presents auxiliary information on wastewater treatment unit operations and costs, monitoring methodology, safety and health considerations, and cost update indices.
