DESIGN OF A SANITARY LANDFILL FIELD EXPERIMENT INSTALLATION

A FIELD FACILITY IS DESCRIBED WHICH WAS DEVELOPED AS PART OF A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF THE HYDROLOGIC FUNCTIONING OF SANITARY LANDFILLS. THE FIELD INSTALLATION IS LOCATED IN THE SEMI-HUMID NORTHEASTERN PART OF THE UNITED STATES. THE TEST SITE WAS SELECTED BECAUSE: (1) THE SITE IS UNDERLAIN BY METAMORPHIC BEDROCK, (2) THE SITE IS LOCATED IN A NEW LANDFILLE, AND (3) THE SITE IS WELL ABOVE GROUND WATER. THE DETAILED DESIGN, INSTALLATION AND ACTIVATION OF THE FIELD TEST SITE IS DESCRIBED IN DETAIL. THE TEST SITE IS BEING USED TO STUDY THE BEHAVIOR OF SANITARY LANDFILLS LOCATED OVER METAMORPHIC BEDROCK AND IN THE SOILS DERIVED FROM IT.
