Abstract

The application of geosynthetics in the landfill remediation project Fresh Kills Landfill in New York City, New York, is described. The Fresh Kills Landfill provides the only remaining in-town disposal location for solid waste generated in the city. The main component of its leachate control project are installation of soil-bentonite slurry cutoff walls and leachate collection trenches around two operational landfill sections at the site. The leachate control project incorporates several types of geosynthetic materials to achieve performance requirements. These include use of geotextiles, geomembranes, and geogrids in the design. The selection of a geotextile filter for the collection trench was considered a critical component of the project design.
