Design, Installation and Monitoring of Alternative Final Landfill Covers
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC)

Solid and hazardous waste landfills are required by federal, state, and/or local regulations to cover waste materials prior to or as part of final closure. The ITRC Alternative Landfill Technologies team believes that the solid and hazardous waste regulations clearly provide a mechanism to permit, design, construct, and maintain landfills with alternative cover design. Several primary types of alternative landfill covers have been proposed for solid, hazardous, and mixed waste landfills; however, the design is in the science and engineering and should not be categorized or prescriptive. Alternative covers have been constructed and are fully operational at industrial waste, construction debris, municipal solid waste, and hazardous waste landfills. Alternative final covers (AFCs) may be used on bioreactor, conventional, or other types of landfills. Types of AFCs may include, but are not limited to, asphalt covers, concrete covers, capillary barrier covers, and evapotranspiration (ET) covers.

This training and associated guidance focus on ET covers and the decisions associated with their successful design, construction, and long-term care. ITRC developed the guidance document Technical and Regulatory Guidance for Design, Installation and Monitoring of Alternative Final Landfill Covers (ALT-2, 2003) and this associated training course to provide tools and resources when considering the application of alternative final landfill covers. The ITRC guidance and training course focus on a class of landfill final covers ('alternative' covers) as integral parts of an overall landfill system that differ in both design and operational theory from those designs prescribed in RCRA regulations.
