Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In recent years slurry cutoff walls have been successfully employed tc mitigate seepage and isolate liquid
waste and leachate in the groundwater environment. . However , a success of the sli:lrry cutoff wall depends on the hydrological
condition of the site. A post construction and pre-construction groundwater budget analysis can demonstrate
~e effectiveness of a slurry cutoff wall.
In th~s paper, a detailed groundwater budget analysis of Loeffel site in the Southwestern Rensselaer County of New
York is discussed. The ·analysis shows that the use of a slurry cutoff wall effectively mitigates the release of
contaminated groundwater from the site.
