This workshop was conducted to stimulate exchange of ideas and information among leading practioners, and to provide an authoritative review of the state-of-the-art for potential users. The proceedings provide written lecture on grouting, flexible membrane linings, drainage measures, jet grouted cutoff walls, reinforced downstream berms, plastic concrete cutoff walls, and ground freezing. Presentation subjects included Grouting for ground Water control Flexible membrane linings Remedial drainage measures Use of the Hydrofraise to construct concrete cutoff walls--Hydrofraise is a French machine for excavating trenches for concrete slurry walls Jet grouted cutoff walls Reinforced downstream berms Plastic concrete cutoff walls Ground freezing as a construction expediency for excavating cutoff trenches and or installation of drains.
