Example text

All of the barrier materials discussed above can provide extremely high impedance to downward percolation of water if they are properly installed. Similarly, all of them can be compromised by desiccation, puncture, or other types of damage. Compacted clay liners (CCLs) are especially vulnerable because they have low resistance to wet-dry cycles (which causes desiccation cracking), freeze-thaw cycles (which increases hydraulic conductivity), and distortion caused by differential settlement (which can cause tensile cracks to form).

Silt is, therefore, almost always highly erodible. Dispersive clays and silts should not be used for the surface layer, unless it can be clearly demonstrated that erosion will not be a problem. The analysis of erosion rates is described later in this section. 2 Cobbles. In arid locations, it may be very difficult to establish and to maintain consistent vegetation on the surface layer. Soil, if used without a sufficiently vibrant stand of vegetation, is vulnerable to excessive erosion from wind, water, or both.

S. EPA (1996). Landfill Bioreactor Design and Operation, EPA /600/ R-95/146, September, 230 pgs. 3. The selection of materials and design of each of the individual components is discussed in this chapter. , the complete system, will be presented in Chapter 3. 1 SURFACE LAYER The primary function of the surface layer is to provide separation between underlying components of the cap and the surface environment. Although vegetated soil is the most commonly used material for the surface layer, cobbles have been used at arid sites where it is difficult to maintain a vegetative cover.
