Example text

Having outlined this scenario, this chapter aims to present and discuss the different tests and steps of a geo-environmental site investigation program proposed for municipal solid waste disposal sites. 2. Geo-environmental site investigation steps The various steps that can be included during a geo-environmental site investigation are discussed in this item and can be systematized in the chart shown in Figure 1, which was prepared considering experience gained on several geo-environmental site characterization campaigns at municipal solid waste disposal sites in Brazil.

Mondelli et al. (2010b) present in Figure 14 the relation between the resistivity values of the saturated layers and the results of the characterization tests on soil samples collected using a direct-push sampler, in order to allow identifying and visualizing the layers susceptible to contamination. These results indicate a tendency for increasing values of resistivity with decreasing fines content, clay content or with clay mineral activity. m) for the sandier soils. m for predominantly sandy layers indicate the presence of leachate in the groundwater.

17. Location of the Bariloche landfill relevant to the Rio Negro province, Argentina. Application of Geophysical Methods to Waste Disposal Studies 21 The deposition substrate is formed by glacial deposits, highly permeable and with low sorting. It is mainly composed of blocks, gravel and sand. Due to these textural characteristics, leachate has high potential to reach and contaminate the aquifers. Groundwater is the source of drinking water for urban areas adjacent to the repository. 2 Gelogical and hydrogeological setting Outcrops present in the area correspond to geological units that comprise the Nahuel Huapi Group of Lower Tertiary age and the sedimentary Complex post-Pliocene-Quaternary which were descript by González Bonorino (1973) and González Bonorino & González Bonorino ( 1978) and are presented in Table 6.
