Abstract

A geosynthetic liner system at a Los Angeles landfill sets a precedent for alternatives to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act's Subtitle D regulations for liner systems. It is Los Angeles' last operating landfill which is undergoing a 4 Mm3 expansion using innovative materials in the liner system to overcome difficult site conditions. The article reviews the regulatory process that led to approval and the liner's design and construction.
