Abstract : Some landfills on Army Installations may be classified 'open dumps' during the land disposal site inventory mandated by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Therefore, Facilities Engineers (FEs) will have to choose among several technologies for upgrading or closing these sites to comply with the new RCRA criteria. This report describes each alternative technology, discusses its advantages and disadvantages, explains the type of labor and equipment needed, and gives costs that the FE can use to order-of-magnitude estimates and to compare specific alternatives for upgrade.
