This is an examination of the effectiveness of landfill-liner designs as affected by the slope, drainage length, and saturated hydraulic conductivity of the lateral drainage layer, and by the saturated hydraulic conductivity of the soil liner, and by the fraction of the area of the synthetic liner (flexible-membrane liner or geomembrane) that leaks. Understanding the inlfuence of these variables on landfill performance is essential to meet the Subtitle C landfill-design regulatiobns of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 and the minimm technology guidance on double-liner systems. The synthetic liner leakage is discussed.
