Abstract : This report presents a review and evaluation of the available information on techniques for bottom sealing an existing lagoon or landfill. Several bottom sealing techniques were evaluated including grouting with directional drilling, directionally controlled horizontal drilling and vertical drilling; hydraulic fracturing and grouting; pancake slurry jetting; floating a bentonite liner; and floating a synthetic liner. The advantages and limitations of each method and costs are presented for application of each technique to a standard lagoon scenario. (Author)
