Updated to cover the latest advances in landfill technology and current issues in landfill operation, this new Second Edition of Amalendu Bagchi's book maintains the integrated, multidisciplinary approach that made the first edition so widely accepted. Design, Construction, and Monitoring of Landfills provides, in one convenient place, a comprehensive survey of the current theory and practice of landfill engineering. It serves as the ideal desk reference for environmental, civil, and geotechnical engineers, hydrogeologists, and others who manage hazardous and non-hazardous waste disposal. It is also an ideal introduction for anyone interested in the fundamentals of landfill technology. A sample of the essential, state-of-the-art information this book offers landfill site selection methods; detailed design steps and drawings of most landfill elements; maintaining quality control during construction; new information on various liner materials; economic analysis of landfills; fundamentals of landfill monitoring; parameters for characterizing different types of waste; summary of attenuation mechanisms of various pollutants, factors affecting attenuation, and design of natural attenuation landfills; retrofitting natural attenuation landfills to function as containment landfills; estimating leachate volume for closed landfills; how gas and leachate are generated in a landfill; design methods for gas venting; a simple approach for designing storm water ditches; fundamental concepts for designing a groundwater monitoring network; formulae for estimating proof of financial responsibility; and how to estimate the costs of construction, operation, final closure, and long-term monitoring of landfills. No other single resource offers as much valuable information on landfills. Design, Construction, and Monitoring of Landfills is an indispensable reference for government agencies, consulting firms, environmental engineers, hydrogeologists, and all persons interested in landfi
