Abstract:

The Navy has 229 hazardous waste landfills that must be treated or capped. Treatment of these wastes is often complicated and expensive due to the wide range of contaminants present. Current technology does not meet the needs for remediating all 229 sites. An alternative to treatment is to design a long-term cover, or cap, for the landfill. Current EPA guidance allows for modifications which may reduce costs and increase life expectancy of a final cover system.
