Abstract Construction quality assurance (CQA) as applied in the document uses scientific and engineering principles and practices to ensure that a hazardous waste land disposal facility is constructed to meet or exceed all design criteria, plans, and specifications. The document covers CQA for hazardous waste landfills, surface impoundments, and wastepiles. The major components of these facilities that are addressed include: foundations, dikes, low-hydraulic-conductivity soil liners, flexible membrane liners, leachate collection systems and final cover systems. The document is intended to complement the Minimum Technology Guidance being issued by EPA's Office of Solid Waste. The document describes these elements in detail and presents information on those activities pertaining to each of the elements that are necessary to ensure that the facility is constructed to meet or exceed the specified design. It is intended for the use of organizations involved in permitting, designing, and constructing hazardous waste land disposal facilities.
