Solid Waste Webinar Series: Landfill Stability

July 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Solid Waste Webinar Series

This webinar will present several topics related to slope stability concerns associated with landfilling of waste materials. Slope stability concerns discussed will include changes to the waste stream, build-up of liquids in the waste mass, and the need for geosynthetic interface testing. Also, a brief overview/background for typical slope stability evaluations will be provided.

1 PDH available upon completion of this course.
