In an effort to meet necessary regulatory requirements as well as minimize potential groundwater quality degradation by landfill gas or leachate, a geosynthetic composite lining system was installed in a new fill area, Canyon 9, in the Puente Hills Landfill in Whittier, California. Approximately 311,000 square feet of textured high density polyethylene was used to line the canyon floor. Also, 1,183,379 square feet of 8- and 10-ounce geotextile and 1,125,969 square feet of 12-ounce geotextile were used for drainage and cushioning functions in the project. The article describes the site conditions, the preliminary studies, and the details of the liner installation. The gas and leachate collection and removal systems and the granular drainage and protection layers are described. The details of the drainage are described.
