POST-CLOSURE PERFORMANCE OF LINER SYSTEMS AT RCRA SUBTITLE C LANDFILLS
U.S. EPA, National Risk Management Research Laboratory.
EPA 600-R-17-205, 326 pp, 2017

In 2016 EPA issued Guidelines for Evaluating the Post-Closure Care Period for Hazardous Waste Disposal Facilities under Subtitle C of RCRA. To obtain information for this new report, investigators evaluated the field performance of engineered double-liner systems based on data from nine Subtitle C landfills sites that had completed several years of post-closure care (PCC). The aim of the study was to facilitate discussion and decision-making processes by illustrating what data are needed, highlighting categories of useful data that are typically lacking, and recommending techniques and tools to complement EPA's 2016 guidelines. This report does not address policy issues or provide generic answers to defining conditions for ending PCC. https://nepis.epa.gov/Exe/ZyPURL.cgi?Dockey=P100TMR3.txt
