Detail

This report has been written to contribute to the understanding of the significance of contaminant diffusion across landfill liners, particularly liners in sites operated using hydraulic containment. It is not a design manual for hydraulic containment landfills and does not advocate the construction of such sites. The report, and accompanying spreadsheet tool, may be used to aid decision-making for landfill risk assessments within the framework set out in the Environment Agency’s guidance on Hydrogeological Risk Assessments for Landfills
