LANDFILL CAP EROSION... SEVERE CONDITIONS AND DRAMATIC SOLUTIONS

Without proactive design, construction, and maintenance practices, landfill operators risk severe damage to their landfills from stormwater runoff in both overland and channelized flow. Fortunately, a variety of materials and installation methods have been developed over the past 30 years to armor landfill caps and protect them from both water and wind erosion. The innovations now available include articulating concrete block systems, turf reinforcement mats, erosion control blankets, and hydraulically-applied mulches.
