This 6 hour course covers the technical issues of siting, designing, operating and closing municipal solid waste landfills. Elements of geosynthetics design for landfill lining systems, drainage systems, and covers are reviewed along with the environmental regulations that dictate much of this practice. The Civil Engineering profession is heavily involved in environmental issues, including solid waste disposal in municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. MSW accounts for about 50% of the billable hours in geotechnical engineering consulting practice.
