Abstract The primary performance goal for waste containment systems is protection of groundwater quality. From about the mid-1970s, liners have been used to protect groundwater quality for some types of landfills in some parts of the country (EPA, 2002). The integrity of liners and covers for waste containment units is typically determined through indirect methods-sampling of down gradient groundwater monitoring wells for liners, and the measurement of changes in leachate levels occurring after closure for covers. This report documents technologies that can be used to detect releases through liners more directly as well as technologies that can detect changes in cover integrity before large amounts of water enter a closed landfill. The objectives of this report are: Identify and describe current technologies that could be used to detect releases to the vadose zone beneath the liner of a containment unit; Identify and describe technologies that could be used to identify potential problems with the integrity of final covers; Present examples of where these technologies have been deployed; Provide sufficient information on these technologies to provide some preliminary assessment on technology applicability.
