Marines Call in to Replace Landfill Liner after Toxic Runoff and Failing Infrastructure
Commander Steve Ramsey, the public works officer at the base, said that costs have “not been insignificant.” He said that the Marines installed a temporary liner over the landfill that cost $4 million, almost as much as the original liner. Trash has since been diverted to the San Onofre landfill, a municipal facility they also own and run.  The water board’s enforcement order demands that Marines cease taking in new loads of waste until the system can face “100 year storm events” without discharging polluted water into storm drains. During the pause, they will also have to repair the torn liner, finish construction and pass a water board inspection.

Release Potential, Neglected Leakage and Reduction Countermeasures for Geomembrane-Lined MSW Landfills with Holes
About 14 % of pollutants leak into the environmental through the landfill liner with the average number of holes of 21.5/ha
For instance, comprehensively detecting and repair of holes in the impermeable liner has reduced the number of holes to 2/ha, resulting in a reduction of >90 % in the leakage of pollutants.
