Properly constructed and carefully maintained waste containment facilities protect human health and the environment. Daniel and Koerner provide technical guidance for the complex task of ensuring construction quality control and assurance of geosynthetics used to contain waste, as well as manufacturing quality assurance and control of these materials.

This book covers all types of waste containment facilities, including hazardous waste landfills and impoundments, municipal solid-waste landfills, nonhazardous-waste liquid impoundments, and final covers for new facilities and site remediation projects. The new edition updates and expands the previous edition to reflect recent developments in test methods, specifications, and field practice.

Engineers and managers involved in the design, construction, permitting, and operation of waste containment facilities and in the fabrication of geosynthetic material will find this book an essential technical resource.

Product Reviews 

"The authors have prepared an outstanding update of the industry standard reference on CQA and CQC protocol for geosynthetic lining and final cover systems. This document should be the standard-issue guide used by every monitor, technician, and engineer involved in the construction of environmentally sensitive liners and final cover systems." —Anthony W. Eith, P.E., Director of Engineering, Waste Management, Inc.

"Daniel and Koerner provide the latest in landfill construction guidance with a ready source of applicable, up-to-date standards and a comprehensive list of references on every aspect of landfill construction. I find this book particularly useful in transitioning students from design calculations to how waste disposal facilities are actually built to function s they were intended. " —John J. Bowders, Ph.D., P.E., Croft Distinguished Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Missouri
