Abstract

In recent years slurry cutoff walls have been successfully employed to mitigate seepage and isolate liquid waste and leachate in the groundwater environment. However , a success of the slurry cutoff wall depends on the hydrological condition of the site. A post construction and pre-construction groundwater budget analysis can demonstrate the effectiveness of a slurry cutoff wall. In this paper, a detailed groundwater budget analysis of Loeffel site in the Southwestern Rensselaer County of New York is discussed. The analysis shows that the use of a slurry cutoff wall effectively mitigates the release of contaminated groundwater from the site.

Effectiveness of a Slurry Cutoff Wall at Loeffel Site

In recent years slurry cutoff walls have been successfully employed to mitigate seepage and isolate liquid waste and leachate in the groundwater environment. However , a success of the slurry cutoff wall depends on the hydrological condition of the site. A post construction and pre-construction groundwater budget analysis can demonstrate the effectiveness of a slurry cutoff wall. In this paper, a detailed groundwater budget analysis of Loeffel site in the Southwestern Rensselaer County of New York is discussed. The analysis shows that the use of a slurry cutoff wall effectively mitigates the release of contaminated groundwater from the site.
