Civil engineers Daniel (U. of Texas-Dallas and Koerner (emeritus, Drexel U.) describe the various materials and elements used in constructing landfills, waste impoundments, and similar facilities in detail. They also recommend types and frequency of tests and observations to make sure the waste is actually being contained, and set out the steps to integrate these pieces into a successful quality assurance and control program. Among the components they consider are compacted clay liners, geo-membranes, soil in drainage and alternative cover systems, and vertical cutoff walls. The first edition was published in 1995; the second includes new test methods, specification, and field practices.
