Landfill Given Extension for Installing EVOH Cover Geomembrane
“Ensuring landfill settlement has diminished to a slow steady rate prior to installation of the EVOH geomembrane is a best practice in the solid waste industry that will ensure that the EVOH geomembrane remains effective in preventing infiltration and release of emissions for the foreseeable future,” according to Craig Benson, a member of the expert panel

Surfaces are now available in SLOPE/W. A weak surface could be used to represent a single discontinuity, a shear zone at residual strength, or an interface along a geomembrane.
New Reinforcement Results Display in SLOPE/W. Engineers need to quickly understand the load transfer into nails, anchors, and geosynthetics to make informed decisions.

Court Case over Geomembrane Liner for Coal Combustion Residue (CCR)
Midwest argues that the Board acted arbitrarily and capriciously by requiring removal of the impoundment liner because the Board (1) disregarded expert testimony that geomembrane liners are nonabsorptive and can be decontaminated, negating the requirement for removal, (2) lacked technical justification to require removal of the liner and associated equipment, (3) relied on factors the legislature did not intend it to consider—namely, the preamble to a proposed amendment to the federal regulation, and (4) made sudden and unexplained revisions to the rule. For these reasons, Midwest contends, section 845.750(a)’s requirement that operators electing closure by removal also remove the impoundment liner fails all three prongs of the Greer test.
