DESIGN OF LANDFILL LEACHATE-COLLECTION FILTERS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Koerner, Koerner, and Martin, published in this journal (Volume 120, Number 10, October 1994), is presented. Discusser Quinn commends the authors for undertaking an ambitious laboratory program with the goal of verifying the applicability of geotextile filters for long-term performance in landfill leachate collection systems; however, he believes the data presented to be limited in terms of applicability for design. Quinn suggests further investigation is needed before a designer can be confident of predicted long-term performance of geotextile filters in landfills. Discussion is followed by closure from two of the authors.
