Abstract The objective of the project was to demonstrate that a landfill in a high water table area could be satisfactorily engineered and operated to produce a minimal impact on the surrounding environment. Initial input was centered on design and site engineering. Subsequent evaluation included detailed accumulation and analysis of physical, chemical and biological data on surface and groundwater parameters both on and off site. The site development, included two types of disposal areas to evaluate engineering, operation, cost and environmental assessment. Demonstration cells were in an area that had been dewatered. Control cells were in an undrained area and penetrated the shallow aquifer with some waste deposited below the water table. A geologic and hydrologic evaluation of the site was also performed in order to determine the interconnection of the shallow aquifer with the Floridian aquifer. The report contains data accumulated over a two year period after initial refuse was deposited. Additional monitoring is planned and scheduled to data input for a period of three more years.
