Abstract
A rule-of-thumb minimum freeboard requirement of two feet (60 cm) has been used in the past for hazardous waste surface impoundments. In many situations, however, this minimum value may not be sufficient to prevent overtopping. Consequently, a procedure was developed for calculating freeboard values in surface impoundments where the liquid depths are shallow and the fetches are short, as is typical in hazardous waste surface impoundments. The procedure takes into account all of the parameters which influence freeboard and presents the information in a format which can be used on a site-specific basis. Additional support information in the report includes an example calculation of freeboard requirement, site specific data obtained from research using a mass liquid balance, and a listing of the various types of liquid level detection equipment.
