Clayey Barrier Systems for Waste Disposal Facilities

Clayey Barrier Systems for Waste Disposal Facilities

by R. K. Rowe, John R. Booker, Robert M. Quigley

Editorial Reviews

Deals with the design of barrier systems which separate waste from the surrounding environment, and which are intended to prevent contamination of both groundwater and surface waters. The authors discuss all key aspects of the design of such systems, including leachate collection, natural barriers such as clayey aquitards, clay liners, geomembrane and composite liners, etc. They integrate the engineering and hydrogeological considerations in the design of waste disposal facilities to provide a sound base from which engineers can work. There is also a comprehensive view of modeling as related to practical landfill design, and case studies give examples of actual field performance. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
