Abstract : The purpose of this Work Plan is to outline the procedures and logic used to conduct the Material and Area Feasibility Subtasks for the FS Soils Support Program. The purpose of these additional subtasks is to (1) evaluate whether onsite materials are suitable for constructing landfill liners and caps, (2) identify a potential landfill site at RMA, and (3) evaluate the suitability of the proposed site for hazardous waste disposal. The scope of this Work Plan includes a description of the Material and Area Feasibility field subtasks. The Material Feasibility subtask includes borrow area selection, test fill construction, and infiltration testing (sealed double-ring infiltrometer (SDRI) testing and two-stage borehole (TSB) permeability testing). The Area Feasibility subtask consists of 3 deep boreholes (continuously cored for geologic data) and up to 30 boreholes (continuously sampled for geotechnical and geological data). (MM)
