Problems associated with solid waste disposal are particularly acure in areas such as the southeastern coastal area of the U.S. where the combination of relatively flat terrain and high ground water tables makes efficient construction of sanitary landfills a challenging problem. With Federal grant assistance, Orange County officials are, therefore, conducting a demonstration project in which certain portions of the disposal cite have been dewatered below the level of waste deposition. The environmental assessment of the operation is based on the quality of the ground water at the site and of the surface water that leaves it through an open drainage system. Details are presented on design and construction, operating procedures, equipment, sampling techniques, and tentative conclusions reached based on two years of experience.
